MASON CITY, Iowa – KIMT is celebrating its 64th birthday but we’re nowhere close to retirement.

The station signed on for the first time on May 15, 1954 at KGLO-TV, owned by Lee Enterprises. The company also owned the Globe Gazette newspaper and KGLO radio and in 1977, the federal government ruled all the media outlets in a city could not have the same owner. KGLO-TV was then sold and renamed KIMT.

The station’s owners now are Heartland Media, which purchased KIMT on January 17, 2017.
