As KVWJ moves into its next five years, we anticipate the need for an improved facility with greater public access and exposure.  A facility which will allow us to grow and serve the South Valley with additional program offerings and increased coverage.  This will not be an easy process - it will involve cooperation on many levels within our community and hopefully, with the support of our listeners, local businesses, and Hyrum City, we can make this dream become a reality.  If you are interested in playing a part in the next chapter of KVWJ, please contact us.

KVWJ celebrated our fifth birthday tonight and it is with great anticipation and excitement that we look forward to the next five years!  Thank you to our listeners and supporters from one of the most dedicated group of radio station staffers that I have had the pleasure to work with.  Be sure to listen closely for our special birthday greetings on the air this week!

KVWJ will be celebrating it's 5th birthday in a little under four weeks.  We can't believe it's been five years already!  

Do you think this an occasion for cake and ice cream?  We certainly do!  Let us know if you'd like to attend a gathering on the evening of Monday, October 24th at the Alumni Records Studios in Hyrum and watch this space for additional details!

KVWJ was everywhere during Hyrum City's Star Spangled Week!  J-95 broadcast the Patriotic Program which featured guest speaker Jennie Taylor and the Hyrum Children's Choir on Sunday evening, KVWJ was in the Hyrum City 4th of July Parade, and J-95 also broadcast the music which accompanied the fireworks show at the conclusion of a activity-filled week.  

Thank you to all who participated, listened, and enjoyed our part in the Hyrum City 2022 Independence Day celebration!  Special thanks to Jim Wellings of Flaire, LLC for assisting with the sound production of the Patriotic Program broadcast!
