KHOU to Pull up Anchor on Allen Parkway - UPDATED

According to Swamplot, the decision has been made not to rebuild the station's facilities on Allen Parkway, which took on 5 feet of water during Hurricane Harvey.

KHOU has been broadcasting from the studios at 1945 Allen Parkway since April, 1960, after spending the first 7 years of its existence as a Galveston station.

Update 12/23/2017 - The station continues to operate out of the facilities of Houston Public Media on the University of Houston campus while it searches for a new permanent location.  A satellite studio will be opened on Avenida Houston which will originate live programming throughout the week.
