They ran programming from the Spanish International Network (now Univision) daily in the afternoon and evening hoursk,and in the mornings they ran religious programs in English. In 1978, New Mexico Visions purchased KMXN, changing the format to English speaking general entertainment as an independent station, showing cartoons, religious shows, classic sitcoms, drama shows, movies and westerns. KMXN changed its call to KLKK-TV in 1980. In 1981, KLKK began to have financial difficulties. In the Summer of 1982 KLKK was sold to Carson Broadcasting which was owned by a group of celebrities headed by Johnny Carson and the station was renamed KNAT. KNAT dropped all the religious programs and began to add more recent off network sitcoms and more recent movies. The religious shows would move to KGSW and a new sign on station KSAF channel 2. While KNAT had good ratings the station continued to lose money. In 1985, Carson Broadcasting sold the programming to KSAF, which became known as KNMZ that same year. KNAT then began airing music videos around the clock. In mid-May 1985, Carson Broadcasting shut down KNAT after being unable to sell the station until 1985, when Trinity Broadcasting Network purchased KNAT, and starting broadcasting its programming in 1986. This station's digital signal, like most other full-service TBN owned-and-operated stations, carries five different TBN-run networks.
