KRVM is licensed to Eugene School District 4J and is listener-supported public radio. From the very beginning, KRVM has strived to improve the lives of the citizens in our community. KRVM is the radio classroom on the air, serving students in area schools as a broadcast practicum. In addition, KRVM serves a loyal audience throughout western Oregon with a wide variety of programs supported by listener members and area businesses who understand the importance of public radio to the community.

Who We Are

The first words ever spoken on FM radio in the Pacific Northwest were spoken on KRVM. The date was December 6, 1947.

Today, KRVM FM at 91.9 has a stereo signal that reaches from south of Cottage Grove to north of Corvallis. On the coast we are known as KSYD FM at 92.1 with a signal that reaches from Reedsport to Coos Bay and in Florence we can be heard at 90.1.

KRVM AM at 1280 on the dial is programmed and funded by Jefferson Public Radio and includes the National Public Radio network, 4J Board Meetings and local high school sports.

What We Do

Besides quality entertainment for our audience, KRVM provides a training ground for students, including studio operations for pupils at Sheldon and Mohawk High Schools and Spencer Butte Middle School. We are open to students from any school in our area who are eager to learn and able to come to our main studios at Sheldon High School.

Though owned by and licensed to the Eugene 4J School District Board, KRVM broadcast stations do not receive funds from the 4J general fund. Therefore, District 4J personnel that may meet the IRS Form 990 criteria are not involved in the day-to-day station operations and no staff member of KRVM meets the criteria of the IRS Form 990.
