In 1970, a new sound filled the air in Northern California. It was the new KVIP Christian radio, at 540 on the AM dial. KVIP
was more than just a new sound, it was a sound that offered hope and a new life - a new life in Jesus Christ.
From the beginning, KVIP was never intended to be "entertainment," although much of its programming is indeed entertaining. KVIP is a non-profit ministry, dedicated exclusively to a specific purpose: ministry to the people of the body of Christ, as an "arm" of the church, and a tool of evangelism to those who are searching and open to the saving message of the Gospel.
To meet the goals, the station presents locally produced Christian programs hosted by Lou Hecker, Ted Hering, Lyle Faudree and Steve Hafen. Prayer Time airs weekdays at 11:45 on the FM stations. KVIP also broadcasts news and information, preaching and teaching programs, live call-in programs and more from a variety of sources around the nation.
In 1975, KVIP added a second Christian station in Redding; an FM station at 98.1 on the dial. The addition allowed us to stay on the air 24 hours a day, utilizing 32 translators to reach outlying areas that had no Christian radio. Many of these translators are fed by satellite from our studios, allowing us to get past some rather high mountains to serve remote valleys and communities.
KMWR serves Brookings, Oregon and Crescent City, California at 90.7 FM. Also in the coverage area are Harbor, Oregon and Fort Dick and Smith River, California plus the Pelican Bay State Prison.
Our newest station went on the air at 89.3 FM serving Eureka, McKinleyville, Arcata and Trinidad October 9th, 2009.
The KVIP web presence began in late 1999. The site you see now is the third version of our web address and includes more information than the previous site. It will continue to grow, adding material for you to use, such as current events, prayer requests, a Bible quiz and more.
