KTBC live streaming TV aired its first television broadcast on Thursday, November 27, 1952, becoming the first television station in Austin and Central Texas. It was originally possessed by the Texas Broadcasting Company (from whom the call letters are taken), which was in turn owned by then-Senator and future U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson and his wife Lady Bird, alongside KTBC radio (590 AM and 93.7 FM). Lady Bird Johnson used the money from her family inheritance to purchase KTBC-TV, she remained active with her radio station until she was in her eighties which led her to become the first president’s wife to have become a millionaire on her own. However, it was a primary CBS affiliate. In its early history, it carried roughly 65% of CBS’s schedule; NBC and ABC roughly split the remaining coverage in half. The station came under ownership of Fox when New World merged with Fox Television Stations in 1996; this made KTBC the first owned-and-operated network station in the Austin market (KEYE was subsequently purchased by CBS in 2000; KTBC became the only English-language network O&O in the market after CBS sold KEYE to Four Points Media Group in 2007). In the spring of 1997, a rumor that KTBC and Phoenix’s KSAZ-TV would be traded to the Belo Corporation in exchange for Seattle’s KIRO-TV circulated, but this deal never came to fruition. Belo would acquire rival KVUE and Phoenix’s KTVK two years later. In recent years, the station’s daytime lineup has leaned away from talk shows in favor of running mostly court shows. KTBC shut down its analog signal on June 12, 2009, as part of the FCC-mandated transition to digital television for full-power stations. The station’s digital signal relocated from its pre-transition UHF channel 56, which was among the high band UHF channels (52-69) that were detached from broadcasting use as a result of the transition, to its analog-era VHF channel 7 for post-transition operations.
