The station's logo as KHIZ, used until 2012.

KILM originally began broadcasting in 1987 as KVVT, the only independent commercial television station in the Mojave Desert region to provide local news programs. It became KHIZ in 1992. In the mid-2000s, the station changed its format and service area to be transmitted in both the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area and the San Bernardino-Riverside Metropolitan Area regions. Multicultural purchased Sunbelt Television, Inc. in 2007.[1] KHIZ eventually incorporated multicultural programming into its schedule. Until 1992, KVVT used to add ABC programming as its affiliate. By that year, KABC-TV Channel 7 has replaced channel 64 as the default ABC affiliate in the High Desert.

At one time, KHIZ aired a weekday morning news program, Inland Empire Live, that was produced from the facilities of WSEE-TV in Erie, Pennsylvania and distributed to KHIZ via satellite transmission.[2]

FilmOn took over the station's operations under an LMA on September 1, 2012, at which point it became KILM.[3] On November 25, 2013, FilmOn TV was removed and replaced with paid programming. On July 12, 2014, KILM dropped the all-paid programming lineup and replaced it with programming from the SonLife Broadcasting Network, a religious broadcasting network owned by televangelist Jimmy Swaggart.

Conversion to all digital

On February 17, 2009, KHIZ began broadcasting digital only on UHF channel 44, and discontinued analog transmissions on UHF channel 64, however, through the use of PSIP, digital tuners still receive KILM on 64.

On May 6, 2009, KHIZ added a low-power analog translator K39GY channel 39 (now KHIZ-LD, channel 2), a former TBN translator in Victorville.
