KYUU-LD is a CW+-affiliated television station licensed to Boise, Idaho, United States. It broadcasts a low-powered, high definition digital signal on UHF channel 28 (or virtual channel 35 via PSIP) from a transmitter at the Bogus Basin ski area summit in unincorporated Boise County. The station can also be seen on Cable One channels 5 and 485. Owned by the Sinclair Broadcast Group, KYUU is sister to CBS affiliate KBOI-TV (channel 2) and the two stations share studios on North 16th Street in downtown Boise. KYUU is branded as The CW 2.2, in reference to its simulcast in standard definition on KBOI-TV's second digital subchannel.

The station signed-on November 10, 1993 with the call sign K66EV and airing an analog signal on UHF channel 66. Until mid-December 2008, it was affiliated with the Spanish-language network Telefutura as KUNB-LP and broadcasting on channel 35. The station then began to simulcast sister station KBCI-TV (now KBOI-TV) until July 1, 2009, when it joined the Retro Television Network; the KYUU-LP call letters were assigned on June 10. At one point in time, the station was listed as a Univision affiliate but has never been affiliated with that network.
On September 12, 2011, KYUU-LP became Boise's CW affiliate, with RTV programming moving to a subchannel on ABC affiliate KIVI-TV (channel 6). At some point in 2012, KYUU-LP shut down its analog signal and started broadcasting in digital on digital channel 28, using 35.1 for its PSIP. On April 11, 2013, Fisher Communications announced that it would sell its properties, including KYUU-LD, to the Sinclair Broadcast Group. The deal was completed on August 8, 2013.
