KHVH (830 AM) is a news radio station licensed to Honolulu, Hawaii, and owned by iHeartMedia, Inc.. It is also transmitting on Oceanic Spectrum digital channel 881 for the entire state of Hawaii.[1] Its studios and transmitter are separately located in the Kalihi neighborhood of Honolulu.


KHVH stands for Kaiser Hawaiian Village Hotel in Waikiki (of Henry J. Kaiser ) which today is the Hilton Hawaiian Village Hotel. The original KHVH studios were at the hotel; however. the KHVH transmitting tower still stands atop the Hilton's Kalia Tower. Prior to its flip to News in late 1994, the AM 830 signal was home to Top 40 KIKI until 1986 when it flipped to oldies and the hit radio format moved to its FM sister station (the former KMAI-FM) as "I94" (now "93.9 The Beat"). From 1986 through 1990, it each year added an additional year to its repertoire; e.g., if it were playing songs from artists up until 1960, beginning January 1, it would then add songs from 1961. In 1993, it swapped signals with KHVH, then at AM 990, when the outlets became sister stations.

AM 830 once broadcast in AM stereo using the C-QUAM system.[2]

KHVH is an affiliate of the Las Vegas Raiders Radio Network.
