History

KTXA began broadcasting on January 4, 1981, and was owned by Grant Broadcasting. The station ran a general entertainment format of cartoons and sitcoms during the day, while at night it broadcast ON TV, a subscription TV service. By 1983, KTXA became a full time general entertainment station which also included old movies and off network dramas. The channel 21 frequency had previously been occupied by KFWT, which went on the air in 1967, but went dark three years later. January 4 is the 4th day of the year in the Gregorian calendar. ... 1981 (MCMLXXXI) was a common year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Grant Broadcasting signed on a similarly formatted station, KTXH in Houston, in 1982. In 1984, both KTXA and KTXH were sold to Gulf Broadcasting, which itself was purchased by the Taft Television and Radio Company that same year. KTXH, channel 20, is currently the MyNetworkTV owned and operated station in Houston, Texas. ...

Channel 21 was a money loser throughout the 1980s, but Taft kept strong programming on the station. In February 1987 Taft sold its independent stations, including KTXA, to the TVX Broadcast Group. In 1989, Paramount Pictures purchased a minority stake in TVX; two years later, Paramount acquired the remainder of TVX and renamed the company Paramount Stations Group, and KTXA adopted the on-air branding Paramount 21 during this period. Viacom bought the stations in 1994 as part of its purchase of Paramount Pictures. In January 1995, the station became a founding affiliate of the United Paramount Network, changing its branding to UPN 21. KTXA later picked up various syndicated programs from KTVT when that station, a former independent, joined CBS in July 1995. The TVX Broadcast Group was a company that owned a group of UHF television stations during the 1980s. ... Paramount Pictures Corporation is an American motion picture production and distribution company, based in Hollywood, California. ... It has been suggested that this article or section be merged into TVX Broadcast Group. ... Viacom (pronounced with a long i as in eye) began life as CBS Films, the television syndication division of CBS.

CBS (an abbreviation for Columbia Broadcasting System, its former legal name) is one of the largest television networks, and formerly one of the largest radio networks, in the United States. ...


From 1985 to 1989, KTXA operated the "Channel 21 Kids' Club." Kids were encouraged in short spots between cartoons to send off for a membership card which would entitle them to discounts at various local buisinesses and enable them to participate in on-air prize giveaways. The membership cards were made of a thin plastic, blue on the front side and white on the back. A "KTXA Channel 21 Kids' Club" Logo appeared on the front in red and white along with the line "I turned 21."


In the late 1990s, more first run syndicated talk and reality shows began moving onto KTXA while the amount of sitcoms and cartoons was reduced. Viacom purchased CBS in 2000, making channel 21 a sister station to its former rival KTVT. KTXA was then moved from the Paramount Building in downtown Dallas to share studios with KTVT in Fort Worth (both are two of three stations licensed to Fort Worth, the other being NBC-owned KXAS-TV). KXAS-TV (NBC5) is a television station based in Fort Worth, Texas. ...


In September 2006, the UPN and WB networks were merged into the CW, and former WB affiliate KDAF became the new network's affiliate in Dallas/Fort Worth. Having been reverted to independent status, KTXA joins KCAL-TV in Los Angeles and WSBK-TV in Boston (another former UPN outlet) as CBS-owned independents. Today, KTXA broadcasts a lineup of off-network sitcoms, talk shows, sports (the station is the broadcast outlet for the NBA's Dallas Mavericks), reality shows, court shows, and a two-hour block of news during primetime called TXA-21 News First in Prime, which was launched on September 18, 2006. The program draws on resources from KTVT's news department ([1]). Channel 21 also carries The Daily Buzz, a syndicated morning program which airs weekdays. KTXA has its own local anchor, Christina McLarty, who appears during local cut-ins during the show that features local news, weather, and entertainment highlights. The local cut-ins are branded as Buzzed into DFW. KTXA may also air CBS programming on occasions when KTVT cannot, such as emergencies or coverage of sporting events.

Channel 21's new branding was announced in two parts, starting with the introduction of the TXA 21 slogan on May 5, 2006. KTXA then launched a promotional ad campaign called "What Could it Mean?" in which a distinctive star-shaped logo showed up on buildings, sidewalks, and billboards around the Metroplex. The new KTXA logo (seen above) was unveiled on July 4. The station's website also revealed that the station plans to begin covering high school football games in the fall. May 5 is the 125th day of the year in the Gregorian Calendar (126th in leap years). ...
