HOUSTON -- KHOU is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year! Channel 11 signed on the air on March 23, 1953, as KGUL-TV in Galveston. In June 1959, the station changed its call letters to KHOU and relocated to Houston.
In this video, News Director Dick John gives a tour of KHOU 11 News Department, providing a behind-the-scenes look at the on-air personalities and their contributions to the station's programming. The film was made during the late 1960s when the building, located on Allen Parkway, was undergoing major rennovations.
