KWVH Was There for Thursday's Storm.

When news breaks out, we break in -- and last Thursday's wind and hail storm is the latest example of that. Just as the storm was blowing in, KWVH's Tanya Tyler and Brach Thomas interrupted Texan Baseball programming for a weather advisory. GM Tim Kiesling continued to provide live updates remotely until midnight. 


Then bright and early Friday morning, Tanya, Brach, and Tim were in studio with more updates from the prior night's chaos. Yeoman's work! Once again, KWVH was the only place to get real-time updates on the situation in the Wimberley Valley.

KWVH Named Best Non-Profit for 2024 By the Wimberley View!

We are proud -- and humbled -- to announce that KWVH has been voted the Best Non-Profit of 2024 by the readers of the Wimberley View! It's our first time to win this honor, which isn't easy to do in a community with DOZENS of worthwhile non-profit and civic organizations. We take pride in relentlessly promoting their events and fundraisers, too!


KWVH was also voted as Best Local Sports Coverage. 94.3-FM is your source for not only Wimberley Texan sports coverage, but we support and promote our school district's excellent academics, events, and extracurricular activities.


This honor really belongs to our volunteers, underwriters, and listeners who understand the importance of live and local community radio. Thanks also to Tim Kiesling and Brach Thomas for everything they do to keep us going every day.
