KFH Radio Celebrates 100 Years On Air

Audacy helps honor Kansas’ oldest commercially licensed radio station

KFH Radio in Wichita, Kansas turns 100 this week. In addition to the station’s week-long celebrations, Audacy honored the milestone birthday on Monday.

KFH, formerly WEAH, was launched on May 26, 1922 for the purpose of broadcasting crop and market reports. It was the first station in Kansas to add FM to its broadcast service and to originate a network broadcast that was carried nationwide.

“As the oldest radio station in Kansas, KFH Radio is very much a key piece of a fabric of this region and the city of Wichita,” said Jackie Wise, senior vice president and market manager at Audacy Wichita. “We’re honored to have been able to carry that baton for 100 years now, serving our community in key moments throughout history.”

The station is currently airing short-form audio clips that spotlight some of the most memorable moments in station and Wichita history, including coverage of World War II, Wichita State University athletics, national attention from the 1938 Orson Welles “War of the Worlds” and more.

During KFH’s centennial celebration, special guests, including local officials and former station personalities, are contributing to on-air programming. The station will also pay homage to the past through a historical content series on its Facebook page. For a full station history, click here.

Additionally, the state of Kansas has declared May 26 as “KFH Day,” which will recognize the station’s place in Wichita history and the role it plays in the community. The Sedgwick County Historical Museum will feature an exhibit to highlight KFH Radio.

Also on May 26, KFH Radio will help induct the station’s late former sports director Larry Stanley into the Wichita Sports Hall of Fame.

Listeners can tune in to KFH Radio in Wichita on-air and nationwide via the Audacy app and website.
