BRYAN, TX — 25 News KRHD focuses on informing the audience they serve and strengthening the community.

On September 1st, the 25 News KRHD station launches in the Brazos Valley.

News will begin with a midday newscast at 11:30 a.m., 25 News at 5 p.m., an hour-long newscast at 6 p.m. and 25 News at 10 p.m.

Newscasts will be anchored by award winning journalists Lindsay Liepman, Niyah Gonzalez and Todd Unger.

25 News KRHD’s office is in Bryan and houses a team of reporters who will tell the stories of the community and spread awareness about meaningful topics.

New technology installed in the studio helps enhance the way stories are told and creates more informative weather forecasts for viewers.

“We are in a historic time in our country where communities need a strong connection to vital local journalism,” says 25 News VP & General manager Adam Chase. “We intend to be that connection. The launch of KRHD is us doing our part to ensure the wonderful people of the Brazos Valley stay connected to their community, to each other, and to building a brighter and more prosperous future.”

25 News will be more than just a news station.

They will be involved with non-profit organizations and schools because they believe that you must invest in the community you serve.

In January 2020, KRHD gave brand-new books to every student at Neal Elementary in Bryan, and they plan to do it again in 2021.

They have sponsored events for Boys and Girls Club of the Brazos Valley and raised donations for the Brazos Valley Food Bank.

With their station launch and larger staff size, they hope to make an even greater impact.

25 News KRHD is owned by The E.W. Scripps Company which lives by the motto “Give light and the people will find their own way.”

The vision of the company is to create a better-informed world. Scripps’ local television stations serve a crucial role as watchdogs of the powerful; a source of comfort in a crisis; and a place to turn for everyday information.

They engage large local audiences with the news and information they need to make decisions for their lives – and make it easy to access their award-winning journalism on every platform, from television to desktop and mobile to over-the-top video platforms.

25 News KRHD can be found on TV (Antenna, Suddenlink, and DIRECTV), online (KRHDnews.com), on Facebook (@25newskrhd), and within the KXXV/KRHD Roku channel and mobile app.
