History of TBS

In May, 1951, Radio Tokyo (KRT, 株式会社ラジオ東京, former name of TBS) was founded. On December 24, it started a radio broadcasting (1130 kHz, 50 kW, until July, 1953), and the frequency changed to 950 kHz. In April, 1955, KRT started a TV broadcasting (JOKR-TV, Channel 6). In November, 1960, KRT was renamed Tokyo Broadcasting System, Inc. (株式会社東京放送). In 1971, the power of TBS Radio was powered up to 100 kW. In 1975, a network TV station in Osaka changed from Asahi Broadcasting Corporation to Mainichi Broadcasting System. On November 23, 1978, the frequency of TBS Radio changed to 954 kHz. In 1994, the new headquarters completed next to the old headquarters. The new headquarters is called "Big Hat (ビッグハット)". On March 21, 2000, TBS founded TBS Radio & Communications Inc. (株式会社TBSラジオ&コミュニケーションズ), TBS Entertainment Inc. (株式会社TBSエンタテインメント), and TBS Sports Inc. (株式会社TBSスポーツ), and founded TBS Live Inc. (株式会社TBSライブ) the next day. In 2001, TBS succeeded the radio station to TBS Radio & Communications, and changed callsigns (ex. JOKR-TV → JORX-TV). On October 1, 2004, TBS Entertainment merged TBS Sports and TBS Live, and changed the name to "Tokyo Broadcasting System Television, Inc." (株式会社TBSテレビ).
