In 1990, KAUT-TV was sold to the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority, becoming a secondary public television station for the Oklahoma City market for the next eight years and rebranded as "The Literacy Channel 43" (keeping the Fox-era circle and star "43" logo).

On September 15, 2005, The New York Times Company agreed to purchase KAUT from Viacom. This created a duopoly with KFOR-TV, the area's NBC affiliate. The deal was completed November of the same year. The NYT's broadcasting division, through a series of acquisitions, eventually became part of the Tribune Media Company's broadcasting division. In 2006, when UPN and The WB were merged to form The CW, KAUT joined MyNetworkTV (as WB affiliate KOCB picked up The CW) and changed its name to OK43, eschewing the network's standardized branding.
