KWBU-TV is a public television station in Waco, Texasmarker, broadcasting locally on digital channel 20 (which remaps to former analog channel 34 via PSIP) as a PBS member station. It is owned by Baylor Universitymarker.

Channel 34 began in 1978 as a low-powered translator of KNCTmarker in Beltonmarker. Until then, cable systems in the area piped in both KNCT and KERA-TVmarker in Dallasmarker, both of which are still available. After a long effort to bring a local PBS station to Waco, on May 22, 1989 it was upgraded to a full-powered station, KCTF, with the ability to produce local programming. In 1994, Central Texas College, owner of KNCT, transferred control of KCTF to the Brazos Valley Broadcasting Foundation, a community group formed a year earlier. In 1999, Baylor took control of the foundation, changing the call letters to the current KWBU-TV a year later.

KWBU's analog transmitter was damaged in late January 2009. With the impending shutdown of analog broadcasting in the United States, the station opted to shut off its analog broadcasts and air solely in digital on February 3--two weeks before the other major stations in Central Texas went digital-only.

In the Waco area, it airs on cable channel 4 on Time Warner Cable and Grande Communications.
