History

KSAT went on air as KONO-TV on Jan 21, 1957 under the ownership of Mission Telecasting Corporation. The station has been an ABC affiliate since its inception. It beat out KENS and WOAI which were the secondary affiliates of the television. From 1956 to 1961 it was linked with NTA Film Network. KSAT original studios were located at 1408 North St. Mary’s Street in downtown San Antonio.

The Roth family sold the channel to Providence, Rhode Island-based The Outlet Company in 1968. In the ensuing years it became KSAT-TV. It was then acquired by H&C Communications in 1986. The Washington Post Company emerged as the new owner of the television and its Houston sister KPRC on April 22, 1994. The two sisters were placed under the Post-Newsweek Stations subsidiary. The channel for a short period of time was rebranded as Local 12 in 2004 before reverting to KSAT 12. KSAT then shifted to a new state-of-the-art facility and former studios and offices were demolished. It turned digital on June 12, 2009.
