Immaculate Heart Radio ( Catholic Radio Station)

The history of Immaculate Heart Radio has been one of growth by Grace. Our network continues to grow quickly as the Holy Spirit opens more and more doors for us in our ministry.

In the beginning…

Our first station, K-IHM, named for the Immaculate Heart of Mary, began broadcasting in Reno, Nevada on January 2, 1997.  At that time, KIHM was only the seventh full time Catholic radio station in the country, as compared to over 1,600 Protestant stations and 15,000 secular stations. As of today, there are almost 300 Catholic stations nationwide!
