KVQT is a low-power television station in Houston, Texas, broadcasting locally in digital on UHF channel 21. It was founded on May 1, 1990 on channel 24, but moved to channel 21 in 2005 due to displacement by KETH's digital signal.

The station has had the KVQT call letters since August 2000, and has been owned by C. Dowen Johnson since February 2002.

KVQT was converted from Analog to Digital operation on June 12, 2009 by Skip Marsden of E.L. Marsden Wireless of Terrell, Texas, the manufacturer of the KVQT transmitter. KVQT began digital television broadcasting with two standard definition program streams, and has expanded to four.

The station was granted a minor change in call sign (from KVQT-LP to KVQT-LD) on May 4, 2010.[1]
