ABC -KTRK History
KTRK-TV or channel 13 is a television station in Houston, Texas, United States, airing programming from the ABC network. It is Owned and operated by the ABC network. The station maintains studios on Bissonnet Street in Houston’s Upper Kirby district. Its transmitter is located near Missouri City, in unincorporated northeastern Fort Bend County.
KTRK-TV began broadcasting on November 20, 1954, and was the first full ABC affiliate for Houston. During its early years, it sought to block the move of a third station into Houston proper by opposing efforts by KGUL-TV (channel 11) to move in from Galveston, which was approved by the FCC in 1956. Its present Bissonnet Street studios were inaugurated in December 1961; designed by Hermon Lloyd (later architect of the Astrodome). The facility features a dome that enclosed two studios, which was boasted to be the first such round studio building in the United States.
The station discontinued regular programming on its analog signal, over VHF channel 13, on June 12, 2009, as part of the federally mandated transition from analog to digital television. As most of ABC’s owned-and-operated stations moved their digital channels to their former analog allocation for post-transition operations, the station’s digital signal relocated from its pre-transition UHF channel 32 to VHF channel 13. KPBX-TV currently operates its digital signal on KTRK’s pre-transition channel position.
