The station became KSAT-TV (the SAT for the city of license) in 1969, a year after Channel 12's founders, the Roth family, sold it to Rhode Island-based The Outlet Company, the licensee at the time this sign-off was recorded. In 1994 KSAT became part of the Post-Newsweek Stations group of the Washington Post Company, now known as the Graham Media Group, which also acquired Houston's KRPC-TV Channel 2 that same year.
