HistoryEdit

The Kemburger Broadcasting Corporation was founded in 1986 by the Government, as the first Kemburger owned television network in Kemburg. Formerly, the most popular channels in Kemburg were the British channels, BBC 1, BBC 2, and ITV 1. Although the government created the company, by 1987, they had completely sold off the company to private consortium from Kemburg, however no major changes occured after the takeover. The KBC quickly grew, and by 1990, it became the most popular television network operating in Kemburg, beating off the likes of BBC and ITV.

In 2000, the consortium that owned the Kemburger Broadcasting Corporation decided it was in need of radio channels, and therefore bought BBC Radio Kemburg from the BBC. This became KBC 1 Radio. Three other radio channels were created during that year, which were KBC 2 Radio, KBC 3 Radio, and KBC Sport Radio. Like the television channels, these quickly grew, and yet again became the most popular by 2005.

In 2012, the company set up a television channel in the majority of the Channel Islands (excluding Herm and Sark), which is quickly growing and surprisingly attracting the attention of many residents of the Channel Islands.

The KBC is now the dominating public service television network in Kemburg, and is over 25% more popular than its next rival, BBC Kemburg. It offers a variety of channels (9 including KBC Channel Islands + Radio) and is still looking to expand its network.
