KWVH evolved from an idea in the mind of Susan Raybuck, Founder and Board Member Emeritus, in 2011. With grit, determination, duct tape, and bailing wire, the dream of creating a community radio station in Wimberley evolved. Wimberley's heartbreaking flood disaster on Memorial Day weekend provided the spark, prompting the FCC to grant KWVH an emergency broadcast license.
The work of dozens of volunteers, financial donors, and thousands of hours of planning culminated in the first on-air FM broadcast day on August 22, 2016. Susan Raybuck, Mike Crusham, and John Brown built a programming lineup of volunteer show hosts covering a variety of music and talk formats to provide a 24-hour schedule of news, information, and entertainment to the Wimberley Valley and beyond.
Today there are untold listeners across the nation and World; representing residents and visitors, business owners, students and graduates who love Wimberley.
