KORO is a Spanish-language television station in Corpus Christi, Texas, broadcasting locally on digital channel 27 (virtual channel 28) as an affiliate of Univision. The station is owned by Entravision.


KORO's logo prior to January 1, 2013

KORO was founded in 1977 as a locally owned, mostly independent station airing programs of the Spanish International Network, a forerunner of Univision. The original owners included lawyers, doctors, and other professionals.

The nearly 1,000-foot-tall (300 m) tower was shared by KORO and radio station KBCB (now KRYS-FM).

KORO's call letters are pronounced in station IDs as "K-ORO".

Analog-to-digital conversion[edit]

KORO shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 28, on June 12, 2009, the official date in which full-power television stations in the United States transitioned from analog to digital broadcasts under federal mandate. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 27.[3] Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 28.
