TWC News: Community Radio Comes to Wimberley
Time Warner Cable News did a short news piece on Wimberley Valley Radio that aired on their cable news station. They happened to come when Texas Hill Country Music Makers was recording an interview with singer-songwriter Jill Welch, who happened to be in the area. Check out the interview here.
Website Reconstruction In the Works!
Wimberley Valley Radio's website will be undergoing a complete rebuild over the next several weeks. We appreciate your patience with us as we go through the process. This website is expected to continue to function in a limited fashion for the reduced number who can access it, but has encountered problems our web host and site builder cannot resolve.
KWVH License to Cover
On February 25, 2016, just 13 months after receiving a construction permit to build a radio station, Wimberley Valley Radio was granted a "License to Cover" by the FCC. A license to cover is a regular license to operate KWVH 94.1 FM as a low power FM broadcasting station as specified in our license. Those licenses are issued for a period of 8 years and stations then can apply to renew their license.
Can YOU volunteer, or donate?

Also, investing money in a way that suits your budget in this worthwhile nonprofit, all-volunteer, community radio station is an investment in safety and all things local.
Need for Broadcast Radio Station Clear
The flooding disaster illustrates the need for a broadcast radio station for Wimberley like nothing else has done. The storm caused widespread destruction that crippled Internet services of all local providers for 2-3 days. Broadcast radio here could have provided all the information governmental and first responders were attempting to communicate to those affected by the floods.
At the time the station went on the air in early June 2015, Wimberley Valley Radio just had an FCC Construction Permit to build KWVH, 94.1 FM-LP for the Wimberley area. Broadcast equipment has been purchased and new studios built, and now we have our full license. Our most urgent near-term goal is to be able to broadcast live from our studios so that when the next emergency happens the community has time to prepare and moved to safety.
PLEASE DONATE TO HELP US BE ABLE TO BROADCAST LIVE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
