JOHX-TV was originally established as an affiliate of Nippon News Network (NNN) and Nippon Television Network System (NNS) in Yahata (Yahata Higashi-ku, Kitakyūshū) in August 1958, airing on VHF channel 9; a station in Fukuoka was established in February 1962 as JOJY-TV. They changed affiliation from NNN and NNS to FNN and FNS in October 1964. The head office was moved to Fukuoka, and the call sign changed from "JOHX-TV" (still the call sign of Kitakyūshū satellite station (airing on VHF channel 10)) to "JOJY-TV" in December 1974. They relocated their office to its current location near Fukuoka Tower in August 1996. During the station's first 53 years of broadcasting, JOHX-TV's analog signal was receivable over-the-air in most of Yamaguchi Prefecture.

Digital broadcasts on JOJY-TV began on 1 July 2006, and the analog signal continued to broadcast until 24 July 2011, when JOHX-TV (which served northern portions of Fukuoka Prefecture and western portions of Yamaguchi Prefecture) ceased operations.
