KETV (channel 7) is Omaha’s ABC affiliate television station, ranked #1 in local news ratings since November 2006, and is owned by Hearst Television Inc. KETV first signed on September 17, 1957 as Omaha’s third television station. KETV was the first to have a full-time meteorologist beginning in the early 1970s, the first station with live weather radar in the late 1970s, and was the second station to utilize Doppler weather radar in the early 1990s.

For the last three decades, the station’s newscasts have been branded as NewsWatch 7. Under its current ownership, it has been known since 2000 as KETV NewsWatch 7. Since 1982, KETV has been known for its weekly Crimestoppers segments and has contributed to the arrest and conviction of more than 1,000 wanted felons. KETV has also had a long running hotline and web-page called 7 Can Help, which has and continues to contribute to helping the greater Omaha community through financial grants, high utility bill relief, and services for area children. 7 Can Help has also been known to intercede on behalf of senior citizens with matters such as getting benefits that have been otherwise denied them. In February 2006, KETV reformatted its investigative unit, in an effort to bring more attention to in-depth investigative stories, along with health and consumer reporting. It has been re-launched as the NewsWatch 7 “I-Team”.
