KTVB – Idaho’s NewsChannel 7
The state’s first television station was founded in 1953 by Georgia Davidson – just one of a handful of female station owners in the country. As an off-shoot of KIDO radio, the station quickly became a vital part of the community, and changed its call letters to KTVB before that first decade was over, and split from the radio station. Over the years, the station has led the way with a long history of firsts – and has been the top-rated station for news for more than 30 years – a feat nearly unmatched in the broadcast industry.
