KWTX, KWTX-TV’s “News 10” is a television station to full power in Waco, Texas, serving Central Texas, a subsidiary of CBS. Property of Gray Television, it broadcasts a digital signal on channel 10. It is broadcast on two cable channels in the immediate market.

KWTX CW also offers programming on its digital stream, under the brand “CW Texas.” Before September 2006, offered a programming KWTX UPN (UPN Waco) on digital. The first station signed on the air April 3, 1955.

Just before the raid on Mount Caramel February 28, 1993, Davidians learned they were facing not a money order service, but a shootout. KWTX-TV cameraman James Peeler asked directions Davidian David Jones, who was driving his mail truck. David Koresh attorney Dick DeGuerin told reporters that Jones Peeler said, “Well, you better get out of here because there is a U.S. National Guard helicopter over at TSTC (Texas State Technical College) and they will have a big shootout with the religious nuts. “Peeler was shocked to see Jones immediately drive to Mount Caramel Center and left the area to call his superiors.

According to the Treasury report said Jones DeGuerin that “Peeler warned not to go near the base, because it would be” 60 to 70 TABC (Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission) guys in helicopters and a shoot-out would occur. “” And Peeler admitted himself to the Treasury review team that he told Jones there would be “some type of enforcement action” and that ” action is likely to be a raid of some type and that there might be shooting. ”

KWTX-TV cameraman Dan Mulloney testified that the initial information KWTX-TV has come from police officers, he declined to name, something the Treasury report did not reveal-and a private ambulance workers with BATF. (Similarly, Ballesteros BATF agent conceded that he was not applying the law BATF that tipped off the Waco Tribune-Herald.) Therefore, the ATF agents ‘expectations’ of a shooting were directly transmitted to the Branch Davidians.

Mulloney, peeler, and reporter John McLemore, with journalists from the Waco Tribune-Herald, were the only non-combatants at Mount Caramel that day. Mulloney produced the television film used in the world of agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms stormed the Branch Davidians’ home. Mulloney and McLemore later used their vehicle to transport wounded ATF agents away from the shooting. McLemore received a congratulatory letter from ATF Director for his bravery that day. However, journalists have become easy targets of blame at KWTX subsequent tests after the raid failed, especially because Koresh learned about the raid approach of Jones, the postman from which Peeler asked directions. Although never charged with any crime, impact tests and accusations ruined career McLemore, Mulloney and Peeler.

Weather updares a very strong cold Arctic front moved through central Texas this morning. Temperatures are down this morning, with winds that were gusting over 40 mph.
