KBTX at 60: Brazos Co. Judge declares May 22 as 'KBTX News 3 Day'

BRYAN, Tex. (KBTX) - Brazos County Judge Duane Peters and the Commissioners Court have officially declared May 22, 2017 as KBTX News 3 Day.

The declaration was made Tuesday during the Brazos County Commissioners Court meeting.

News 3's Noelle Bellow accepted the proclamation on the station's behalf.

Judge Peters says he remembers when KBTX first came on the air back in May of 1957, and was happy to recognize the station's 60 year milestone.

"Nowadays you can turn on satellite TV and pick up all kinds of stations but still, KBTX is still a local station," said Judge Peters. "That's an advantage of course because that means they're involved in the local community. So its great to have y'all here, we're happy to be apart this."
