Channel 40 was originally home to an English-language independent station, known as KPOL, which signed on the air January 5, 1985.[1] At the same time, KDTU (now KTTU) signed on with a similar format. Tucson was too small to support both stations, so KPOL filed for bankruptcy in 1988 and went dark in 1989. The license remained active.


In 1991, local Tucson businessman Jay Zucker purchased the dormant KPOL license out of bankruptcy, and on July 1, 1992, channel 40 signed on as KHRR with Telemundo programming. Zucker owned the station until 1998, when he sold it to The Apogee Companies, who maintained the Telemundo affiliation.

KHRR became a Telemundo O&O in 2002, along with KDRX-CA (now KDPH-LP). The two stations maintained a sister relationship, sharing their newscasts and programming stations, yet with each station based out of its own city of license. The arrangement continued until a 2006 station swap relocated Telemundo O&O KPHZ to Phoenix, Arizona, where it became KTAZ, and Daystar O&O KDTP to Holbrook, Arizona. The deal also transferred KDRX-CA to Daystar, where it became KDTP-CA.

In 2007, a restructuring plan by parent company NBC Universal, called "NBCU 2.0", moved the KHRR and KTAZ newscasts to the Telemundo News Hub in Dallas, along with news operations of other Telemundo stations in the West.

Digital channels

The station's digital signal is multiplexed:

Channel Video Aspect PSIP Short Name Programming[2]
40.1 1080i 16:9 KHRR-DT Main KHRR programming / Telemundo
40.2 480i T-Xitos TeleXitos
40.3 ION Ion Television

In their Sixth Report and Order, dated April 3, 1997, proposing a digital television table of allotments, the FCC allocated UHF channel 41 for the KHRR-DT operations.[3] However, by February 1998, the DTV Table of Allotments had been changed to specify channel 42 for KHRR-DT.[4] KHRR applied for DTV facilities to broadcast at 303 kW in October 1999, and eventually amended the ERP to 411.5 kW in February 2002.[5][6] In May 2003, in order to meet an FCC deadline for having a digital television station operational, KHRR requested a Special Temporary Authorization (STA) to operate at 12.7 kW, which the FCC granted the following month.[7] After delays due to coordination with the Mexican government, interference issues, and the sale of the station from the Apogee Companies to NBC Telemundo, by June 2006, the station was still operating under their STA facilities, the STA having been extended several times. Having to meet another FCC deadline to have fully operational facilities by June 30, 2006, KHRR requested to make their STA facilities permanent.[8] The FCC granted the request on July 10, 2006, and the next day, KHRR applied for a license to cover their facilities, from which they were already broadcasting. The FCC granted the license on January 31, 2007.[9]

Analog-to-digital conversion

KHRR discontinued regular programming on its analog signal, over UHF channel 40, on June 12, 2009, as part of the federally mandated from analog to digital television.[10] The station's digital signal relocated from its pre-transition UHF channel 42 to channel 40.[11]

Kahului Railroad

The Kahului Railroad (KHRR) was formerly a common carrier railway company in Hawaii (United States). It operated on 3 ft (914 mm) narrow gauge track 15 miles (24 km) in length from Wailuku to Kuiaha on the north coast of the island of Maui.

After the US government of the Hawaiian government had allowed sugar to be exported duty-free in 1876, the sugar industry experienced a strong upswing. The head of the postal authority of Kahului, Thomas H. Hobron, saw the need to transport the sugar quickly to the ports and opened already on 17 July 1879 a railway line from Wailuku to the harbor in Kahului under the name Kahului and Wailuku Railroad. The first passenger train ran on 29 July 1879. In September 1879, the construction was completed on this section. The track was the first public railway in the Kingdom of Hawaii. Scheduled mixed trains operated from Tuesday to Friday. On 21 September 1880, the extension to Pa'ia was opened. From 1 July 1881 rail operations operated under the name Kahului Railroad .

From 1884, the branch to Spreckelsville was in operation. From 1894 until the annexation of the archipelago by the United States in 1899, the web used its own stamps for the transport of mail that were produced by the US Postal Service. In 1899, the railroad was acquired by the Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar Co. In 1906, the railway company built from the port of Kahului.

The line was extended again on 8 February 1913. The railway crossed the Maliko Gorge via a steel bridge to reach Ha'ikū and Kuiaha. The bridge was with a height of 230 ft (70 m) above the valley floor the highest railway bridge in Hawaii, and had a length of 682 ft (208 m).

The railway was from 1959, the last public railway in the state of Hawai'i and after a total of almost 87 years, the organisation with the longest operating time. In 1962, Hawaiian Commercial & Sugar was acquired by Alexander & Baldwin. It was decommissioned on 22 May 1966, and subsequently degraded. The Maliko bridge was demolished. The tracks and some vehicles were used for the construction of Lahaina Kaanapali and Pacific Railroad, a tourist train in the west of the island. The company continues today as Kahului Trucking & Storage. It continues to be a subsidiary of Alexander & Baldwin.
