Its dedication ceremonies were broadcast on June 8 of that year. The station’s initial cost was an investment of $350,000 and had an annual operating budget of about $110,000. Originally licensed to both University of Houston (“UH”) and the Houston Independent School District, UH became its sole licensee in 1959.
