South Houston, League City area

Post by mmatheny »

Lineup shows channel 5 and 305 as KIAH - this is actually KHCW, with 305 being KHCW-HD.

Well, Robert Kulagowski at SchedulesDirect informed me that the callsign had changed - funny that all the Houston lineup listings still show it as KHCW, and it is still referred to as The CW on their station!?

Well, I guess "All the Houston Listings" are wrong... SD is correct.

"KIAH is owned by the Tribune Company" would be funny if the listings weren't correct. (We get our data from another Tribune Company)

"On July 15, 2008, Channel 39 changed its call letters to KIAH as part of a branding campaign emphasizing the station's local orientation (KIAH is the ICAO airport code for George Bush Intercontinental Airport)"
and of course, the Houston Chronicle: One more time: Channel 39 decides to change call letters yet again


Game, set, match.
Data is correct. :)

Robert
