KDFW’s history goes way back in 1926 when KRLD-AM radio hit the air for the first time under the ownership of Edwin J, Radio Laboratories, and Kiest. After keeping it for a year, they decided to sell it to the Dallas Times Herald newspaper in 1927; it was the same year when KRLD-AM became the only CBS Radio affiliate in Texas.

Later in 1940, KRLD Radio owners decided to start their own TV channel “KRLD-TV”; it was the 4rth Television Station in the Texas market, which succeeded in getting the license in the area from FCC. Finally, Channel 4 (Currently Fox 4 News Dallas) started programming on 3 December 1949 with a football match between Notre Dame vs. SMU. Later, in no time, the station also added newscast and entertainment stuff into their CBS schedule.

Post 150 & Merger

1950 was the ‘golden era’ for Television companies as it saw many TV sets coming in almost every home of the US citizens. However, the most significant moment in Channel 4’s history occurred on 22 Nov 1963, when the station broadcasted John F. Kennedy live visit to Dallas. On 2 July 1970, the Dallas Times Herald and the Times Mirror Corporation decided to merge together, and as a result of this merger, due to the new rules by FCC, KRLD had to flip its call-signs to KDFW-TV, where DFW was representing the station’s broadcasting area “Dallas-Fort Worth.”

  1. Typical how Fox 4 news cherry picks Presidential debate snippets that attempted to make President Trump look bad while showing snippets of Biden in a favorable light. Your network political bias for support of all things democrat is divisive and repulsive. Fake news at the local level, shame on you Texas Fox 4. Life is about choices and i choose to not watch your news program anymore. Good riddance.
