KETK has always held a strong commitment to the East Texas communities it serves.  KETK added a 4PM and 4:30 PM weekday newscast in 2021. The station produces 30 hours of local news produced each week. The station is also home to some of the top syndicated programs in the country. Those programs include Rachael Ray, The Drew Barrymore Show, Dr. Phil and Entertainment Tonight. The station’s commitment to weather is well documented.   KETK takes great pride in their local sports coverage as well.
