In the early 2000s, the news staff began to investigate the Houston Police Department's crime lab. This led to the shutdown of the lab and the dismissal of several officials. Since then, the investigative reporting team has covered a wide variety of stories, including the dropout rate in the Houston Independent School District, the defective design of Firestone tires, and the deaths of journalists.
In addition to its own news program, KHOU has a sister station, WFAA, that provided live news coverage. This station also provided social media profiles, as well as live streaming on its website. However, the studio was closed in August 2017 when the studio and several other buildings in the channel's main office complex were flooded.
After the flood, KHOU began to air minute-by-minute updates on its newscasts. One of the most popular shows on the station is Blue Bloods. Another popular program is Master Highlights.
KHOU also airs religious programs from Lakewood Church and Second Baptist Church. Several programs are carried on the station's digital platform, such as the Christian music show Twice, the True Crime Network, and Bounce T.V. They also feature celebrity interviews and sports commentary. Aside from live news and sports programming, the channel also features entertainment and lifestyle content. There is also a classified section on the KHOU-TV Web site.
The station's weather department offers extensive coverage of the weather in Houston. Whether it is Hurricane Harvey, a tornado, or another weather event, the team has the resources to give the public the most accurate information.
