The call letters for North American radio and television stations depend on where you live. Stations west of the Mississippi, like channel 11 news Houston TX, begin with a K; those east of the Mississippi begin with a W. When it comes to the internet, though, the only thing a news station needs, like channel 11 news Houston TX, is a URL.

In a recent poll, more than half of Americans said they get their news from online sources compared to radios or newspapers. Television, as a primary news source, fell to 52 percent (second place), and for the first time ever, the internet has surpassed radio as the primary source of news for Americans over the age of 50. Regardless of the change in how we receive information and news, traditional mediums of news are still viable, such as channel 11 news Houston TX.

According to census data, in 2011, the population of Houston, Texas, was slightly more than 2.1 million residents. The surrounding area, which is also served by channel 11 news Houston TX, includes more than six million people.

As such, channel 11 Houston TX provides up to the minute local, national, and international news and weather via its television broadcasts and online format.

Houston channel 11 news, otherwise known by call letters KHOU, is a CBS affiliate. (There are approximately 200 CBS affiliates, like channel 11 news Houston TX, throughout the United States.) In 1953, KHOU, or channel 11 news Houston TX, was the second news station to broadcast in the Houston area. Today, channel 11 news Houston TX broadcasts 28 hours of newscasts each and every week. The online format of channel 11 news Houston TX, however, provides 24 7 news as well as mobile TV news on the go.
