On May 10, 1956, the ancestor of what was to become KFSN-TV ABC30 began its television service to Fresno and the San Joaquin Valley. In 1971, the station was purchased by Capital Cities, Inc. Today, ABC30, a Disney Company, is the most watched television station in the Central Valley with more than 30 years of leading news ratings, and abc30.com is the number one local television news website.* ABC30 also ranks as most popular among local TV stations across all mobile platforms with its iPhone and Android apps. Plus, Action News is the only local TV news with a dedicated iPad app. More Valley viewers get their news and entertainment from ABC30 than from any other source.
