When KBGN took to the airwaves in October of 1960, it was the very first station in Idaho fully dedicated to Christian programming. With the vision of  Harold and Gene Shaw and Evangelist Dempsey Mylar, KBGN was first broadcast at 910 on the AM dial from studios which have continued to develop on Chicago Street in Caldwell . In 1976, after Pastors Dick and Ed Shaw assumed ownership, the transmitters and tower were moved to make room for a new Caldwell airport and we began broadcasting at 1060 AM with a power increase to 10,000 Watts. 

   Always a family owned facility, with ownership transferring to Nels and Karen Wilson  in 1989, KBGN continues as a vital family ministry, dedicated to obediently spreading the Good News of  Jesus Christ to Southwest Idaho and Eastern Oregon.
