There are several ways to get in touch with us.
Remember: these channels are for stories that might make good investigations. They're not for press releases, comments or complaints about stories. (You can send those on our Contact Us page, though)
We will review each message that comes in, though because we get a lot of requests, we may not respond directly to each one.
What is a good tip?
A good tip consists of information that we can use to start looking into a problem, preferably with documented proof of the problem. A hunch, a guess, speculation or rumor aren't typically good for tips. Tips also should have news value that others could benefit from.
You can send us tips to
KTRK / ABC13

Note: Due to security, you can never show up to the TV station without an appointment.
Tip line: 713-663-8760
If you call, be sure to leave us some idea of what the story is about. A message just asking for a callback won't go very far.
WhatsApp is a secure way to contact us with tips. When you use WhatsApp, it sends a secure message directly to our office. It uses end-to-end encryption for protection of anything you send. Our WhatsApp number is 832-519-8098. (This is not for phone calls, it's for the WhatsApp only. Calls to that number aren't received or answered.)
Signal is another private messaging app designed with security in mind. Messages are encrypted from end-to-end. The app can be used to send encrypted messages, pictures, video and more. Our Signal number is 832-519-8098. (This is not for phone calls, it's for the Signal only. Calls to that number aren't received or answered.)
