KORO-TV is a Spanish-language television station in Corpus Christi, Texas, broadcasting locally on channel 28 as an affiliate of Univisión. The station is owned by Entravision.

KORO-TV was founded in 1977 as a locally owned, mostly independent station airing programs of the then SIN (Spanish International Network), a forerunner of Univision. The original owners included lawyers, doctors, and other professionals.

The nearly thousand foot tall tower was shared by KORO-TV and the then KBCB-FM (now KRYS-FM).

KORO-TV's call letters are pronounced in station IDs as "K-Oro" (Ka-Oro).

In early 2008, KORO-TV launched a new website featuring news, weather and more. The link to the page is on the right side and bottom of this page.
