TXCN combines the news staffs of four of Belo's Texas television stations — WFAA-TV in Dallas, KHOU-TV in Houston, KENS-TV in San Antonio, and KVUE in Austin — in addition to the formerly co-owned Dallas Morning News (now a part of the separate A.H. Belo Corporation) and the company's Washington, D.C. news bureau.

On January 1, 2005 Texas Cable News programming was scaled down after 45 of the 75 staffers were let go. The announcement came on December 4, 2004. Belo attributed the failure of Texas Cable News to a lack of distribution on cable systems in Texas' largest TV markets.

TXCN now airs repackaged content from Belo stations in Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and Austin. All original programming, minus weather and occasional original programming, was dropped along with on-air talent, except for weather department staff.

  • Austin - Channel 324
  • Beaumont - Channel 58
  • Corpus Christi - Channel 74
