Basin PBS hit the waves on March 24, 1986 as KOCV-TV. Prior to that, Public Broadcasting Service’s content was purchased by the existing market stations and aired on a per program basis in the northwestern portion of the market though KENW. Odessa College was the former owner of the station and sold it to Ector County Independent School District later on. Former First Lady Laura Bush had the original membership of the KOCV that became KPBT-TV in 2006 after the ownership was taken over by community.

The analog transmission was dropped in favor of the digital signal on Feb 17, 2009. Audiences can watch KPBT online for educational programs, Kids content, community events and programs. Find the station on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Here is the website:
