KCAM To Become An Independent Non Profit, Under A Local Board Of Directors

KCAM Radio, which has been owned by Alaska Bible College for the past 4 years, is becoming an independent entity. KCAM and Alaska Bible College have announced that a transition is in process to create an independent, nonprofit organization to operate KCAM under a local board of directors.

The name of the organization will be JOY Media Ministries in honor of founder Vince Joy. The Alaska Bible College Board believes that with strong support of the community and the planning that has been done, KCAM will continue to be a voice in the Valley providing information, services and Christian programs to all its listeners.

KCAM has been under the ownership of Alaska Bible College since 2011, and the transition to Joy Media Ministries will go into effect on Jan. 1, 2015.

The radio station began broadcasting in 1964 -- 50 years ago -- during the Great Alaska Earthquake. They're conducting a Sharathon, with a $25,000 goal, for equipment upgrades and transition costs.
