TUCSON, Ariz. — Due to the threat that the Bighorn Fire presents to our KGUN transmitter site on Mt. Bigelow our engineers have been preparing for the possible loss of that tower by configuring the tower of our sister-station, KWBA The CW Tucson, to carry our KGUN signal should the need arise.

These preparations may have disrupted the over-the-air signal for some KWBA viewers. A rescan of your TV or digital box should restore the signal.

Likewise, should the fire consume the towers on Mt. Bigelow, our engineers will automatically switch towers so that your reception continues as seamlessly as possible. However, some KGUN viewers using an antenna to receive our station may need to do a rescan since the signal will be coming from the KWBA tower just northeast of Mt. Wrightson near Melendrez Pass in the Santa Rita Mountain range.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for watching KGUN 9 On Your Side and KWBA The CW Tucson.


  • Select Scan or Autotune from your TV or converter box control menu to start the scanning process.
  • Your TV will do the rest. This process usually takes a few minutes to complete.

If you have rescanning difficulties, you can usually find instructions by selecting the Set-Up or Menu button on your television or converter box remote control. If you are still having issues, consult the TV or converter box owner's manual for detailed instructions on how to run a channel scan or contact customer service for your TV or converter box manufacturer.
