Welcome to the
HISTORY OF IDAHO BROADCASTING
This site is currently undergoing extensive renovation. It may be a few
weeks before all the features are fully operational.
Thanks for your patience!
A tip to help you find stuff -- If you aren't sure where to look to find something on this site, you can simply search for it. For example, if you can't remember the present call letters of a station from the past, using the "Search Site" link in the upper right corner of most pages, type what you are looking for and hit <enter> and you will find a list of all the places on this site where that is mentioned. Any keyword can be used. Happy looking !
A request from the webmaster -- If you are reading this, and work for a radio station, I would like you to check the information posted for your station, particularly the "Timeline". In the information I have available, there are gaps where I may have been unable to find all the correct dates and/or changes that have occurred over the past years. If you can provide any new information, or correct any erroneous information, please contact me. If no timeline exists yet for your station, pass along what you know and we can include it on the site.
-- Rockwell Smith
NOTE: Currently many links are faulty. This is part of the renovation. They will be working soon.
I will update this note when most are working again.
