History

KVUE first went on air on Sep 12, 1971 and was owned and managed by Center Broadcasting Co. of Center, Texas. It was the Austin’s maiden full-time ABC service. KTBC would carry the programs of the network previously prior to the launch of the KVUE. KHFI unlike other broadcasters two-stations markets didn’t’ signed with the network as a secondary affiliate. It was acquired by Universal Communications in 1978 before selling to Gannet Company in 1986.

Gannet exchanged its asset with Belo Corporation in 1999. Gannet announced the acquisition of Belo for USD 1.5 billion on June 13, 2013; the deal was approved by Federal Communications Commission and consummated on Dec 23, 2013. KVUE following the deal regrouped with its sisters including Sacramento-based KXTV for the first time in 14 years. The channel was bestowed with a Peabody Award for a documentary: The Cost of Troubled Minds in 2014. After the separation of the print and broadcasting division of Gannet, it became a Tengna Inc.

The syndicated programs produced by the channel include The Ellen DeGenerres Show, Entertainment Tonight, Live with Kelly and Ryan and others.
