KSAW-LD is the low-powered ABC- affiliated television station for Idaho's Magic Valley. Licensed to Twin Falls, it broadcasts a standard definition digital signal on UHF channel 51 from a transmitter east of Jerome. The station can also be seen on Cable One channel 3 and in high definition on digital channel 455. Owned by the E. W. Scripps Company, KSAW has an advertising sales office in the Blue Lakes Office Park on Falls Avenue in Twin Falls (housed in the same building as the local offices of NBC outlet KTFT-LD).

Although identifying as a separate station in its own right, KSAW is actually considered a semi-satellite of KIVI-TV in Boise. It clears all network and syndicated programming as provided through its parent, though with some programming carried on KSAW at different times. This outlet also airs separate legal identifications and commercials inserts that target the Magic Valley. Master control and most other internal operations originate from KIVI's studios on East Chisholm Drive in Nampa (along I-84/ U.S. 30/ SH-55).

KSAW's digital signal does not simulcast KIVI's two digital subchannels (carrying Laff and Escape) and neither one is carried on the Cable ONE system in Twin Falls. It operates a low-powered digital translator of its own, K29GV-D channel 29, in Hagerman. This airs from a transmitter northwest of the town on a ridge along the Snake River.
