About KOLD

Posted: Updated:

KOLD is the CBS affiliate in Tucson. It is owned by the Raycom Media, Inc.

KOLD News 13's crew of dedicated reporters and staff serves the entire Southern Arizona region with serious, hard-hitting news coverage using the latest high-tech equipment. KOLD-TV is located off Cortaro Road and I-10 in Tucson.

Tucson is the 70th largest television market in the United States. KOLD-TV broadcasts the most local news in Southern Arizona - more than 8.5 hours per weekday and more than 47 hours per week.  That total includes news that KOLD provides for KSMB-TV.  KOLD and Raycom Media recently entered into a Shared Service Agreement with KMSB and the Belo Corporation to provide news, marketing and engineering services to KMSB/KTTU. KOLD produces a two-hour morning show on KMSB from 7 to 9 a.m. and a one-hour daily 9 p.m. newscast.

The spirit of innovation has always been with the station. KOLD-TV was the first television station in Tucson. KOLD-TV began broadcasting on Jan. 13, 1953.

KOLD-TV's tower is located at 4,800 feet in the Tucson Mountains, southwest of town.
