On August 15, 1991, KOKH-TV converted into an affiliate of the Fox network, taking over the affiliation from KAUT-TV (channel 43). The switch resulted from Heritage Media's donation of the KAUT license and assets to the Oklahoma Educational Television Authority (OETA).

OETA had planned to develop a secondary PBS member station for the Oklahoma City market since 1988, when it was involved in an aborted plan in which Pappas Telecasting Companies attempted to acquire KOKH with the intent of consolidating the entertainment programming inventories of KOCB (channel 34) and KAUT — including the Fox affiliation — and migrating them onto KOKH's programming schedule. Whereas the Pappas proposal intended to make KOKH the market's lone "independent" station, the Heritage deal only eliminated KAUT as an independent competitor.
