KYAC is a FCC licensed Class "A" 500 watt ERP non commercial community radio station. It is licensed to Santiam Hearts To Arts, our parent 501-C3, and is a community radio station that has been on the air since July 2013. We are a non commercial FM station that serves our Santiam Canyon residents including Mill City, Gates, Lyons, Mehema, The Little North Fork, Elkhorn, Stayton, Sublimity, surrounding and outlying areas as well as highway 22 from mile post 11 to milepost 47. Our non profit parent is Santiam Hearts to Arts and they are committed to the education of all arts including broadcasting. Hearts To Arts have been around since 2007. We started as a LPFM and in December of 2021 were granted a construction Permit from the FCC for a Class A NCE station.
We operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with both live DJ's as well as prerecorded shows and a great automation system. We provide local news, weather and emergency information regularly. When the power goes out, we're on the air with emergency power to keep our communities informed and entertained.
