KTTZ-TV was launched as a not-for-profit educational TV on Oct 16, 1962 after the approval of FCC. It until 1978 maintained as the only PBS service in West Texas when KCOS signed on air. KPBT-TV followed the course in 1986 and was followed by Amarillo-based KACV in 1988. Plains Broadcasting Company was the original construction permit holder of the channel in 1953; the site today is occupied by KLBK and KAMC.

KTXT went on air from a converted building station with an ERP of 2,500w; the radiated power was raised to 25,700w. It was then increased to 60,600w late on and Harris transmitter became operational in 1984. On Feb 5, 2009, KTXT became a complete digital channel. The calls were changed to KTTZ-TV on Jan 15, 2012.
