History

KSVR launched its first broadcast in May 1973 on 90.1 FM from the campus of Skagit Valley College in Mount Vernon, Washington. The station's broadcast frequency later moved to 91.7 FM in 2002 after a signal conflict with Washington State University's KMWS that began in March 1997.[3]

KSVR's programming includes Spanish-language music and information, folk, bluegrass, hip-hop, jazz, oldies, and various international music formats to news-talk and locally focused informational programs. The station also broadcasts program selections from NPR.[4]
