KSWO-TV signed on March 8, 1953 under founder Ransom H. Drewry. On December 1, 2015, Raycom Media purchased KSWO from Drewry Communications, bringing innovation and a fresh digital approach to news gathering. The way you consume news media is different today from when KSWO first launched, but our commitment to servicing the community and providing relevant news and weather remains the same.

Let’s face it, our lives are busier than ever. There’s work, school, family life and numerous daily decisions to make. With so much going on in our personal lives it’s difficult to keep track of things happening in our communities. 7 News has a team of journalists working every day to share local news that affects your family. You’re concerned about your schools, neighborhoods and the future of the Lawton-Fort Sill area and so are we. Each week our news team delivers 24 hours of live news coverage and constant updates on kswo.com, the 7 News mobile app, and our social media pages. No matter how you choose to consume local news you can count on 7 News to deliver it.

Dark skies, strong winds and large hail are a part of living in Southwest, Oklahoma. Our team of meteorologists and storm chasers work tireless when severe weather threatens our viewing area. In January 2017, KSWO combined weather resources with our sister station KAUZ-TV in Wichita Falls, Texas to form the First Alert Weather team. Using advanced warning technology and weather experts on both sides of the Red River allows us to better inform you so that you can make the best decisions when it comes to protecting your loved ones. Here in Tornado Alley weather conditions can get rough and your safety is a responsibility we take seriously.

KSWO believes in serving the community. We are proud to partner with local non-profit businesses and organizations that support growth and a better quality of life. Whether you’re a lifelong resident or a member of the military stationed at Fort Sill, KSWO is your primary source for news and weather in Texoma.
