KPIX signed on the air on December 22, 1948, the first television station in Northern California as well as the 49th in the United States.It was originally owned by Associated Broadcasters, owners of KSFO (560 AM).The station's digital channel is multiplexed: using PSIP to display KPIX-TV's virtual channel as 5 on digital television receivers.On October 21, 2014, CBS and Weigel Broadcasting announced the launch of a new digital subchannel service called Decades, scheduled to launch on all CBS-owned stations in 2015, including on KPIX-TV on channel 5.2.In 2005, KPIX fell in line with the mandate and rebranded as "CBS 5", and later to "CBS 5 Bay Area" (although some references to "CBS 5" were heard in station promos as early as 2003).
In 1952, KPIX and KSFO moved into a new building at 2655 Van Ness Avenue; KPIX moved out of the facility in 1979, when it relocated to a converted 1920s era warehouse on the corner of Battery and Broadway streets (refurbished by the architecture firm Gensler), where KPIX remains to this day (KSFO moved to studios in the Fairmont Hotel, across the hall from the Tonga Room, in 1955.
The studio on Van Ness Avenue (renamed to Bridge Studios after KPIX's departure) was the first building in San Francisco specifically built for television; the game show Starcade taped here after a pilot taped at KRON-TV's studios (it was demolished in 2006 to make way for a condominium complex During Westinghouse's ownership, KPIX was the company's only television station on the West Coast.
Additionally, it was one of two VHF stations (along with Pittsburgh's KDKA-TV) that didn't have a historic three-letter callsign, the only one to have a "K" callsign west of the Mississippi River, and along with WJZ-TV in Baltimore (until 2008) was the only one without a sister radio station with matching callsigns.
The two stations share studios located on Battery Street, just north of San Francisco's Financial District; KPIX's transmitter is located atop Sutro Tower.
In addition to KBCW, KPIX shares its studios with formerly co-owned radio stations KCBS, KFRC-FM, KITS, KLLC, KMVQ-FM and KZDG, although they use a different address number for Battery Street (865 as opposed to 855).
