KAUS is proud to carry every Austin High School football and boys basketball, Minnesota Twins, Minnesota Golden Gopher football and basketball games. Also, listen for select Austin Bruins and Minnesota Wild games.


Our transmitter site is adjacent to our studios south of Austin. Originally, we began broadcasting with the call letters of KAAL and housed the earliest incarnation of the television station known today as KAAL (formerly KAUS-TV) in our rural Austin studios.

Our initial broadcast was coverage of the Indianapolis 500 on Sunday May 30th, 1948.
