Happy 50th Birthday, KTRE!

by Jessica Cervantez

KTRE has passed a milestone. August 31, 2005 is our 50th anniversary of being on the air.

For half a century, we have been bringing East Texans local news, weather, and sports.

For the rest of the year, we will be featuring different stories, people, and events from our history. Some KTRE employees took time to look at old photos from 1955 when we became a TV station.

We now serve six counties and 87,000 viewers. Join us in celebrating 50 years.
