About KFDM News
KFDM TV initiated its operations on 24 April 1955. It was the oldest on-air TV channel to begin telecast in the Beaumont-Port Arthur Market. UGHF CH 31 KFDM began a year before but then went off-the-air in a few months. KDFM News boasted to be the first TV channel on the right side of Texas for many years. The channel was locally possessed by Beaumont Broadcasting that used to own a radio channel KFDM 560 AM. However, its founder was a Magnolia Petroleum Company.
The station’s calls KDFM mean Kall For Dependable Magnolene, which was Magnolia’s moto oil’s branding at that time. Despite the fact that the station’s sister radio KFDM 560 was always an ABC affiliate, KFDM TV has been taking its primary content from CBS since the beginning. KFDM Beaumont TX works alongside KBTV CH 4 that operates in the Porth Arthur region under the affiliation of DabI CH 4 under Shared Service and Joint Sales. The sister channel was possessed by Deerfield Media.
