KSAN-TV is the NBC affiliate for the San Angelo, Texas, USA market, owned and operated by Mission Broadcasting.

KSAN is owned by Mission Broadcasting; through a Local Sales Agreement the station is operated by CBS affiliate KLST, which is owned and operated by Nexstar Broadcasting Group.



The station originally had its start in 1962 as KACB-TV, a satellite of Abilene's KRBC-TV. In 1999, KACB became the third full-fledged station in the San Angelo market, with its own news department, local advertising and programming line-up. On October 1, 2003, KACB-TV was renamed KSAN-TV. To this day, both KSAN and KRBC, though now separate stations, remain under the same ownership (Mission Broadcasting).

KSAN-TV (Channel 32) was originally an early UHF television station in San Francisco, California, which first began operations in 1954, but had a relatively small audience for many years since few Bay Area television sets had UHF tuners in the 1950s. KSAN-TV stayed dark until 1962. The station was bought by Metromedia and renamed KNEW-TV, then taken over by KQED (Channel 9) and renamed KQEC-TV to offer additional PBS programming.
