Hi, I’m Bill Glynn, President of Kasilof Public Broadcasting and General Manager of KWJG, Kasilof, AK and our sister station KMJG, Homer, AK.
Like our radio stations, this site is a work in progress.
Kasilof Public Broadcasting, owner of the KWJG and KMJG broadcast licenses, started as a dream to provide the Kenai Peninsula with a commercial free radio alternative. Free of government influence too, as we do not accept funding from any government entity. We are supported entirely by our listeners and underwriters.
We signed KWJG on the air September 1998 with a whopping 45 watts! Not much power compared to most stations on the dial but enough power to be heard. Enough power to generate interest among local folks. Most of them wanting a chance to get on the air.
We’ve opened the doors to the station, so to speak, and today volunteers from all over the central Kenai Peninsula produce a variety of local programs. We’re always looking for new ideas, too. The rest of the broadcast day is handled by OTTO our trusty automation system.
After operating for a year at 45 watts the Federal Communications Commission in Washington, DC authorized a power increase to our present level of 1,000 watts.
We have put the finishing touches on the KMJG, Homer transmitter site and hope to begin additional work on the studios soon.
If you are interested in becoming involved with KWJG or KMJG, we would love to hear from you.
