The genesis of our mountain radio station was through Dov Ashford who discovered that we could petition and be granted a new frequency by the FCC. Rick Mills and Don Ashford had the preliminary engineering done and the paperwork for a new frequency, 97.5 FM, was filed in 2002. It took awhile to materialize, but the frequency was awarded to us and the stations first breath was heard over the airwaves in 2006. KTRT is alive because of a lot of hard work and the generous financial help from many folks in our community. The following are statements that we believe in, live by and represent:

  • We are a true community station
  • Our vision has always been to serve our community
  • We strive to bring a diversity of music that reflects the diversity of us and our valley
