November 25th, 2014 by Janice Limbaugh

If it wasn’t for the commitment and participation of our community volunteers, WKTV programming would not be possible. So as we celebrate 40 years on the air, we salute our longest running programs!
Topping the list at a full 40-year-run is the Wyoming City Council meetings. In the early days, volunteers would haul full-size studio cameras from the station to city hall. Today, there’s a permanent mini control room with cameras inside the meeting room to streamline the production. [Read More]

New Technology Keeps WKTV Looking Young
Studio A and its control room.
November 25th, 2014 by Mike DeWitt

After 40 years of serving as Wyoming and Kentwood’s community TV station, WKTV is finally over-the-hill. While some may see a 40th birthday as getting old, the technology available here at WKTV says otherwise. It’s what keeps the stations young, fresh, fast and…well… new! The mission at WKTV is to connect the community through media and create media literacy. That’s a fancy way of saying “You have a story to tell that we want to hear, and we have equipment that you can use to tell that story… for free!”

Happy 40th anniversary WKTV
Volunteer #3
November 22nd, 2014 by Colleen Pierson

This isn’t your ordinary anniversary!

40 years, a great staff, special programming and hundreds and hundreds of volunteers. Since 1974, It’s been all about you.

On October 16,1974 Wyoming, Michigan incorporated WKTV as one of the first community TV Stations in the State of Michigan. WKTV was one of the first community television stations to use the phrase “community television.” When other stations are simply “public access” television, We take many steps further providing active hands on training and a proactive approach to being a media presence within the community. WKTV believes the community can be better built through media and the more media literate a community is…the better it knows itself, where it’s going and who its neighbors are. [Read More]
