Fox’s MyNetworkTV has signed an affiliation agreement with Young Broadcasting-owned KELO-DT, the digital-only UPN channel operated by KELO-TV, the CBS affiliate in Sioux Falls, S.D.

The affiliation deal, announced Monday, raises the new network’s clearances to 66 stations covering nearly 56 percent of the country’s TV homes.

It is the second Young affiliation for MyNetworkTV, which will launch Sept. 5 with 12 hours of stripped prime-time programming, starting with two English-language telenovelas. Young’s independent station, KRON-TV, recently signed as MyNetworkTV’s San Francisco affiliate.
