History

KWTX hit the waves on April 3, 1955 as an independent service and was owned by Texoma Broadcasting. It picked up ABC in fall of 1955 and became its fulltime affiliate after the closure of DuMont when KAGN became a fulltime CBS station. KANG with a history of financial troubles eventually went down at the end of 1955 and its assets were acquired by KWTX owners and submerged in their channel. As a result of the merger, KWTX became a primary CBS affiliate and has maintained its status ever since.

Gray Television became the new owner of the Ch 10 on Oct 1, 1999 after the approval of deal by Federal Communications Commission. It converted into a digital service on June 12, 2009. You can watch KWTX online and follow it on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Here is the website: https://www.kwtx.com/
