About KIRO Tv CBS 7
The station operates its studios on Third Avenue in the Belltown area of Downtown Seattle. Its transmitter is located in the Queen Anne neighborhood, adjacent to the station’s original studios.
In 1958, KIRO-TV began broadcasting as the final commercial VHF television station to serve the Seattle metropolitan area. Due to its affiliation with KIRO (710 AM), the station immediately assumed the CBS affiliation from KTNT-TV (now KSTW) in Tacoma. However, a lawsuit between the owners of both stations led to a two-year period of shared affiliation.
For over three decades, KIRO-TV was owned by the broadcasting division of the LDS Church. In 1995, during a nationwide affiliation shuffle, KIRO-TV briefly became a UPN affiliate when KSTW reaffiliated with CBS. However, in 1997, through a three-way trade involving the two stations, KIRO-TV rejoined the CBS network.
The station has a long history, dating back to its first broadcast in 1958. Over the years, KIRO TV has established itself as a trusted source of news and information in the region. It has won numerous awards for its journalism and has a dedicated team of reporters and anchors who cover local, national, and international news.
In addition to its news programming, KIRO TV also offers a variety of other shows and features, including entertainment programs, lifestyle segments, and community events coverage. The station is known for its commitment to community service and often partners with local organizations to support charitable causes.
