KGNS-TV, “Your Good Neighbor Station”, launches ABC affiliate as the newest member of its’ family.

KGNS-TV is undergoing some exciting changes in 2014! Among them, Laredo's own ABC affiliate. KGNS-TV, channel 10 on Time Warner Cable, channel 8 on Dish, channel 8 on DirecTV and Digital channel 8.1, is excited to bring in a family oriented network with great programming for viewers of all ages. We are thrilled to be able to re-introduce ABC to Laredo and the surrounding areas.

Laredo, Tx. (June 27, 2014)- KGNS-TV is proud to announce that it will be launching ABC on July 1, 2014, adding a new member to its’ family of networks. ABC is a top ranking network, with number one rankings in news, and offering popular prime time programming such as: Dancing with the Stars, Modern Family, Nashville, and Once Upon a Time. Currently, the networks that are being broadcast by KGNS-TV are: NBC, Telemundo, and The CW. On July 1st, 2014 KGNS-TV will no longer be The CW affiliate for this market.

This isn't, however, the first time KGNS has been home to an ABC affiliate. When KGNS-TV first went on the air, in January of 1956, it broadcasted NBC, ABC, and CBS programming. KGNS-TV was proud to have all three networks then, and it is equally proud to re-introduce ABC to Laredo, Zapata and the rest of South Texas in July. NGNS (ABC Laredo) staff is already planning several community initiatives and developing events that will inspire and grow with our great community.

KGNS-TV is owned and operated by Gray Television, Inc. Gray owns and operates stations in 42 markets across the country.
