Early History

The network's first station, KUID-TV, signed on from the UI campus in September 1965.[2] KBGL-TV signed on in July 1971 from ISU in Pocatello, followed that December by KAID-TV in Boise, licensed to Boise State University. After a decade, KBGL changed its call letters to KISU-TV in 1981. The three stations shared many programs, but were largely operated independently at first. However, in 1981, two KUID-produced documentaries—one about logging practices, another about lead exposure—caused such an outcry that the state legislature yanked nearly all funding for public television.[3] Citing budget restrictions in early 1981, the state legislature cut 90% of the state funding for public television,[4] and the stations relied on federal funding and private donations.[5] A year later, the legislature ordered the merger of the three stations into a single network.[6][7] The licenses for all three stations were transferred to the state board of education
