KXXV went on air on March 22, 1985 as an NBC station under the original ownership of Central Texas Broadcasting Company, Ltd. Waco at that time was one of the last markets in the United States to get full service from all three broadcast networks. The NBC affiliate then moved to ABC in September 1985 while KCEN replaced it for NBC. In 1987, it was sold to Shamrock Broadcasting before selling it to Drewry Communications in 1994. The LP semi-satellite of the channel active in Bryana is named after the founder of Drewry Communications Group, Robert H. Drewry.
