KUHT-TV debuted on May 25, 1953, as America's first educational television station. Since then it has served as a model for other educational television stations. Its main goal is to provide quality programming to students, faculty, and the entire community. KUHT predates the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and the Public Broadcasting System (PBS). Its history includes award-winning local and national productions, including a national Emmy Award for excellence.
