KXXV (News Channel 25) is a full-power television station in Waco, Texas, serving Central Texas as an ABC affiliate. It is currently owned by the Drewry Communications Group (a family-owned company based in Oklahoma). A planned late 2008 sale of the Drewry stations to London Broadcasting fell through due to the late 2000s credit crisis.  London Broadcasting subsequently purchased local NBC affiliate KCEN-TV.
