Biographical Sketch

On October 16, 1962, KTXT-TV broadcasted its first programs at Texas Tech’s non-commercial television station. An open circuit, noncommercial, educational television station licensed by the Federal Communications Commission to the Board of Regents of Texas Tech University, KTXT-TV (Channel 5) is staffed and operated by the Educational Television Department of the Division of Continuing Education. The offices are housed on the southwestern part of campus, near the 817-foot broadcast tower. Its mission is "to serve the public interest, convenience and necessity, and satisfy all federal regulations relating to its staffing, operation, and funding; to support all aspects of the University, with special emphasis given to curricula and cultural contributions; and to make a positive contribution to University-community relations throughout the South Plains". KTXT-TV, also referred to as South Plains Public Television, began digital transmission in the fall of 2002. More information on the station can be found at http://www.ktxt.org/television.htm.
