History In Plain Sight

Learn About Abilene's History

KTXS is proud to be in partnership with local historian Jay Moore and his Class of ?78 Productions in which KTXS will rebroadcast his acclaimed ?History in Plain Sight? Abilene documentaries.

Moore, a history teacher at Abilene High School, has produced these specials through the generosity of the Dian Graves Owen Foundation and with the help of the Abilene Preservation League. These specials have previously run on Suddenlink Cable Public Access Channel 7 and will also continue to run on Suddenlink, as well as KTXS.

Mr. Moore comments, ?The history of Abilene and this part of Texas is rich in stories and I have always enjoyed mining these tales and bringing them to the light of day. I believe that knowing local history helps us understand who we are as West Texans.?

?KTXS is thrilled to bring these wonderful documentaries to a greater audience across the entire Big Country. We share Jay?s passion and enthusiasm for the history of Abilene and the Big Country?, says Kyle Krebs, General Manager of KTXS/KTXE/KTES/CW Abilene.
