KOVE Radio - A True Wyoming Original
One of Wyoming’s first radio stations, KOVE signed on in 1948, and we are just now starting our 71st year of service to Lander and Fremont County. It was a really big deal back in 1948 when the governor Lester Hunt came to Lander to “officially” turn the radio station on. Lander’s airport “Hunt Field” was named so in his honor and Governor Hunt has been the only governor ever elected from Lander
Edward J. Breece, who also owned the Lander Journal newspaper at the time, started KOVE radio station. Mr. Breece served several terms in the Wyoming House of Representatives. His son, Dan Breece, operated the station until 1973 when Joe and Andrea Kenney became partners with him. In 1975 the company signed on the first FM radio station in Fremont County, KDLY. And, in 2000, Joe and Andrea Kenney bought Dan out and they have operated the stations ever since.
Locally owned and operated, proudly serving the Wind River Basin, including Lander, Riverton, Pavillion, Shoshoni and the entire Wind River Reservation and beyond. KOVE has been on the air continuously since 1948 and KDLY since 1975.
KOVE is a Fox News affiliate and has been since the first day Fox News Radio signed on.
In addition to Fox News we also Feature Fox Business Reports several times a day and social commentary from conservative correspondent Todd Starnes three times a day, also from the Fox News Network.
KOVE broadcasts Lander Tiger Football, Tiger Boys and Girls Basketball, Wyoming Cowboys football, Men’s and Women’s basketball, and the Denver Broncos.
