History

Local businessman, Charles Butt started the station to bring the benefits to South Texas. After that H-E-B supermarket chain associated with another businessman, approached to Corpus Christi business community for starting local PBS television station. All of these challenges, it signed in the air on 16 October 1972.  South Texas Public Broadcasting System applied for a station in 1980 for Victoria which will be expanded in South Texas. In late 1984, plans for a television network were scrapped and by the end of the 1980s, it was deeply in debt. Digital transmission brought new financial burdens to the station.  In 2003, the station was still using original equipment and transmission. The station did modernize the opportunity and allowed even more programming to serve the community.
