The station operates on VHF channel 13 at 316 kilowatts and it broadcasts digitally on UHF channel 40 at 0.96 kilowatts under a Special Temporary Authority, however it has filed a construction permit to increase power to 1,000 kilowatts.
The station began its broadcasting operation as KDUB-TV, founded by the late television pioneer W.D. "Dub" Rogers, Jr, putting the station on the air for the very first time on November 13, 1952. It was the first commercially licensed television station between Fort Worth and Los Angeles. It was also the first commercially licensed television station in a medium to small-sized market. Over the next few years, Rogers signed on KPAR-TV in Abilene (now KTXS-TV), KEDY-TV in Big Spring (now KWAB, a satellite of KWES-TV in Midland and KVER-TV in Clovis, New Mexico (now KVIH-TV, a satellite of [[KVII-TV in Amarillo). These stations made up the West Texas Television Network, the first regional television network in the United States.
The station later changed its call letters to KLBK in 1961. Originally the station also carried ABC as a secondary affiliation until 1969 when KSEL-TV (now KAMC) became the local primary ABC affiliate. The other stations in the West Texas Network were sold off
KAMC was acquired by Mission Broadcasting in late 2003 as part of Nexstar's acquisition of Quorum Broadcasting; most Mission stations have local marketing agreements with Nexstar stations in the same market; in this case, it is KLBK in Lubbock. KAMC’s syndicated programming includes Entertainment Tonight, Montel Williams, and Rachael Ray.OUR HISTORY
KAMC first began broadcasting in the fall of 1968 as KSEL-TV. Originally an independent station, KSEL soon began broadcasting some ABC programming which was previously split between CBS affiliate KLBK and NBC affiliate KCBD. After a few months of sharing secondary affiliations with the local CBS and NBC affiliates, KSEL-TV became the primary and exclusive ABC affiliate for the Lubbock market in the fall of 1969. A few years later the station changed its call letters to KMCC, then later to the current KAMC. From 1979 to 1986, KAMC applied the former KMCC call sign to a satellite station on Channel 12 in Clovis, New Mexico that is currently operating as KVIH-TV, now a satellite of Amarillo
