History

KAMU-TV began broadcasting on February 15, 1970.[1] It originally aired on UHF channel 15, and was the first educational station in central Texas.

Moore Communications Center, where KAMU studios are located

On April 1, 2003, KAMU was the first station in the region to begin broadcasting in HDTV.[2] KAMU made the first live HDTV broadcast in the region on April 22, 2004, with the program "Meet the Candidates 2004".[3]

KAMU switched from analog to digital broadcasting on June 12, 2009. It opted not to use PSIP to remap to channel 15, instead opting to use channel 12 as its virtual channel. KAMU offered ResearchChannel on subchannel 12.3 until that service folded in August 2010.
