CBS 11 Houston KHOU is a local news station that covers the Houston area. They provide news, weather, traffic, and sports updates. They also have a blog that provides tips and information on various topics.
The station first went on the air in 1953 as KLEE-TV. It was the second television station in Houston, after KPRC-TV (now NBC 2). In 1955, the station was bought by the Hobby family, who also owned the Houston Post newspaper. The Hobbys changed the station’s call letters to KHOU-TV (for “Houston”), and it has used those call letters ever since.
KHOU has been a CBS affiliate since its inception. However, it also carried programming from other networks during its early years, including ABC and DuMont.
The station is currently owned by Tegna, Inc., a media company that owns several other television stations across the United States.
