KTTW is a Fox- affiliated television station licensed to Sioux Falls, South Dakota, United States. It broadcasts a high-definition digital signal on VHF channel 7 (also the station's virtual channel via PSIP) from a transmitter in Rowena, South Dakota. KTTW is owned by a group of local investors and maintains studio facilities on West 11th Street in Sioux Falls. It operates a full satellite station in Huron: KTTM (virtual and VHF digital channel 12); this station's transmitter is located near Alpena, South Dakota.

History

The station signed on May 29, 1987 as the first non- Big Three network commercial station in South Dakota. It has been a Fox affiliate for its entire existence. For its first six years on the air, it was effectively South Dakota's first general entertainment independent station. Fox didn't air a full week's worth of programming until 1993, and until then most early Fox affiliates were programmed as independents.

Until 1996, when KEVN-TV switched affiliations from NBC, it was also the state's only Fox affiliate.

KTTW aired on analog channel 17 since its inception. But while most TV stations kept their PSIP virtual channels the same as their former analog channel after the digital transition, KTTW rebranded from "Fox 17" to "Fox 7" and shows up on PSIP virtual channel 7. KTTW has never had a news operation.
