KBFT

KBFT is the Student television station at Christian Brothers High School in Sacramento, California. The station was founded in 2001, and is currently in its ninth school year of operation.

KBFT broadcasts a live, closed-circuit program to all students and staff as well as to a web audience three times per week. The "KBFT Morning News" is a ten to fifteen minute program that includes school announcements, world news, sports, weather (previously featuring the insightful weather broadcasting of Collin Lygren) and more. The show is run entirely by students. KBFT has received national recognition by STN, the Student Television Network, and has been ranked as the #1 high school news broadcast in the nation in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2008. KBFT was also awarded the number one live sports broadcast in the nation in 2007.

Several graduates of Christian Brothers High School who participated in KBFT have pursued careers in media. Graduates have worked at local Sacramento stations KOVR, KCRA, Fox 40, KTXL, and the San Diego station KFMB.
