KJHK first went out over the FM airwaves on October 15, 1975. Since then, the station has been a home for alternative music, creative content, and free-form programming.
Gifts supporting KJHK go towards creating educational opportunities for over 150 students on campus that are interested in learning more about radio broadcasts, working with music industry promoters and agents, event planning and management, content producing for podcasts, articles, and videos, recording and producing live bands, marketing, and live broadcasting sporting events including the NCAA tournaments. Student fee support fluxes depending on student enrollment and varying allocation levels the student senate can support.
KJHK receives 90% of our funding from student fees. Additional support from other sources is paramount during this time as KJHK has lost several underwriting clients during the pandemic and has not been able to raise nearly enough additional income over the past two years of the pandemic.
