KFQX is a television station in Grand Junction, Colorado, broadcasting digitally on UHF channel 15 as an affiliate of Fox. Founded February 10, 1993, the station is owned by Parker Broadcasting of Colorado, LLC.

KFQX is operated under a LMA by Nexstar Broadcasting Group, which also owns co-located KREX-TV.

For its first few years, KFQX offered delayed rebroadcasts of KREX's newscasts. In 2005, the station began simulcasting news programming from former Fox owned-and-operated KDVR in Denver. Today, the simulcasts include a three-hour weekday morning newscast (Good Day Colorado from 6-9 a.m.), a weeknight newscast at 5:30 and a nightly primetime newscast from 9-10 p.m. It also offers simulcasts some of KREX's weekday newscasts at noon, 5 and 10 p.m.

On November 20, 2013, Gray Television announced it would purchase Hoak Media and Parker Broadcasting in a $335 million deal. KFQX will be sold to Excalibur Broadcasting; however, Gray will sell KREX and Excalibur will sell KFQX due to ownership limits; Gray already owns KKCO and operates Excalibur-owned KJCT. On December 19, Gray announced that KREX and its satellites will be sold to Nexstar Broadcasting Group, while KFQX will be sold to Mission Broadcasting, for $37.5 million. The sale of KREX was completed on June 13. Nexstar will provide services to KFQX, while it awaits FCC approval.
