KVEO-TV is the NBC affiliate television station for Brownsville, Texas, and serves the entire surrounding metropolitan area, known as the Rio Grande Valley.

It broadcasts with a digital signal on UHF channel 24. It airs on Time Warner Cable systems as cable 8 in standard definition and 860 in high definition. It is operated out of its studio in Brownsville, located on US Highway 77. KVEO is also available on channel 23 in both standard definition and high definition on DirecTV and Dish Network .



KVEO signed on in December 1981. Before then, the area had been one of the few in the country without a full-time NBC affiliate; the area's original NBC affiliate, Weslaco's KRGV-TV, had become a full-time ABC affiliate in 1976. In the interim, CBS affiliate KGBT-TV carried NBC programming on a secondary basis.


At the station's inception, KVEO had a news operation branded as Total 23 News but in a year or two, local news programming was dropped in favor of entertainment programming due to very low news ratings against the other area stations.

Local news returned to the station on October 1, 2007, under the NewsCenter 23 branding. The newscasts are produced in high definition, making KVEO the first station in the Rio Grande Valley to do so.

In January 2010, ComCorp announced that it would close KVEO's news department, other than a few reporters. The locally-produced newscast would now originate from a ComCorp-controlled station in El Paso, KDBC-TV, using its own staff, with the remaining reporters in Brownsville filing reports. The new newscast, which debuted January 18, 2010, is broadcast live from El Paso.[2][3]

Weather segment

Even before KVEO restarted its news operation, KVEO provided a weather segment at 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. weekday evenings with meteorologist Jason McCleave of WeatherVision. (A similar segment continues to air at 10 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday nights, as KVEO does not air weekend newscasts.) KVEO also broadcasts local forecast segments during Today.

KVEO offered NBC Weather Plus on 23-2 prior to NBC Universal's acquisition of The Weather Channel and subsequent termination of the Weather Plus service.
