KSAZ-TV, virtual and VHF digital channel 10, is a Fox-owned television station licensed to Phoenix, Arizona, in the United States. It is part of a duopoly with MyNetworkTV-owned and operated station KUTP, which is owned by Fox Television Stations, a subsidiary of Fox Corporation (channel 45). Both stations share studios on West Adams Street in Downtown Phoenix, with KSAZ-transmitter TVs atop South Mountain.
On October 24, 1953, the Autry-Prairie Farmer group signed on as a shared operation on channel 10. The two separate stations alternated airtime but shared the same channel allocation and transmitter under the arrangement. After Autry paid $200,000 for KOY-share TV’s of the operation, KOOL-TV took over channel 10 full-time in 1954. To “prevent World War III,” Joseph Billie Gwin forced his way into the KOOL-TV studios and fired a shot from his gun.
Gwin then held host Louis Villa in a chokehold for nearly five hours at gunpoint. He was arrested and later declared insane after being charged with kidnapping, assault, and burglary. KTSP began as KTSP-TV, which stood for “Tempe/Scottsdale/Phoenix.” The station’s call letters were most likely changed to match those of sister station WTSP in St. Petersburg, Florida at the time. Shelly Jamison, a KTSP newscaster, left the station in 1989 after appearing as both a cover model and naked in Playboy.
