KUAM celebrates 65th anniversary of on-air sign-on

Posted: Updated:

It was the start of who we are today - 65 years ago KUAM Radio signed on the air. Here's a look at our history and our plans for the future.

On March 14, 1954, KUAM Radio signed on the air as the first commercial broadcast station in Guam's history.

KUAM Radio 610 AM set a precedent that would forever change the way our local community received information and entertainment.

KUAM TV and Radio, now under the Pacific Telestations, LLC umbrella, consists of Isla 63AM, I-94FM - 93.9 FM, KUAM TV8 (NBC Affiliate), and KUAM TV11 (CBS Affiliate).

It also encompasses a number of digital properties including our social media platforms, Podcast Network, website, and mobile app.

Much has changed in the years since a group of California entertainment executives initiated Guam's first ever-commercial broadcast station.

But through all the changes in technology and our island's economy, KUAM's commitment to our local community has remained steadfast.

KUAM is the island's premiere media leader and has surpassed the vision for a local broadcast station that was launched 65 years ago today.

Our slogan since our inception has been "First on Guam."  Today, this slogan still stands but for much more than being the literal First station on Guam.

It's about continuing to be a leader, innovator, and the first one you turn to be informed and entertained!
