KNCT, virtual and UHF digital channel 46, branded on-air as "PBS Central Texas", is a Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) member television station licensed to Belton, Texas, United States and serving the Waco–Killeen–Temple television market. The station is owned by Central Texas College. KNCT's studios are located at the CTC campus in Killeen; KNCT's transmitter is located near Youngsport, Texas.

HistoryEdit

When KNCT signed on in November 1970, it was the sole PBS station for the western portion of the market, with the eastern portion served by Texas A&M's KAMU-TV, which signed on in February 1970. In 1978, KNCT set up a low-powered translator in Waco. The main KNCT signal barely covered Waco, while KAMU's signal just missed it. In 1989, it was upgraded to a full-fledged station, KCTF, which was spun off as a separate station in 1994 and ultimately taken over by Baylor University in 2000 as KWBU-TV.

On November 4, 2019, the station rebranded as "PBS Central Texas" with a new logo to coincide with PBS' rebranding the same day and the 50th anniversary of the parent network.
