KRDO-TV, which first went on the air on Sept. 21, 1953, was one of the three original television stations in Colorado Springs. Harry Hoth, a then-junior employee of KRDO Radio, persuaded the owners of the company to create a TV station. Hoth acquired the station in 1961 and it remained in the family for 45 years. Hoth, who served as Colorado Springs mayor from 1963-67, made sure the station served the city’s business community with timely, accurate in-depth coverage.
That tradition continues with the current owners, the St. Joseph, Mo. News-Press & Gazette Company, which has been owned and managed by the Bradley family since 1950.
“KRDO News Channel 13 is proud and humbled to be recognized by our local business community,” said General Manager Tim Larson. “Like many local entrepreneurs, we are a family-owned company and the home of where the news comes first in Southern Colorado. For almost 64 years, we’ve enjoyed connecting businesses with customers across the networks of KRDO.”
