About Us


KVVP-FM was started by U.S. Army Colonel (Retired) Chaplain John Stannard on Jan. 20, 1977 at a location on Hwy. 28, the Alexandria Highway, with 3,000 watts at 105.5 FM. 

Then-Leesville Mayor “Boots” Sartor turned on the station that day for the original broadcasting hours of 6 a.m.-11 p.m.

In July 1977, the first full-time DJ began broadcasting, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

In August 1978, the station’s format changed to Country Music with its first song being “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” by Charlie Daniels -- an interesting selection for a station owned by a  retired Army Chaplain.

KROK-FM started broadcasting from DeRidder with 9,000 watts and a new 470-foot tower in 1985. 

In January 1988, KVVP-FM's new and current facilities opened just off U.S. 171 near Fort Polk's Entrance Road. 

In September 1996, KVVP-FM went to transmitting at 25,000 watts at 105.7 FM and the transmitter moved five miles south onto U.S. 171 and also KROK-FM moved its facilities to the current Pickering area location.

KROK-FM, 95.7 World Class Rock, has a dedicated and diverse listening audience.

KUMX-FM was added in 2002 at 106.7 FM as Mix 106.7, a popular mix station playing everything from classic rock to pop.

In 2012, KVVP-FM was rebranded as Today's Country 105.7, and is a West Central Louisiana country music favorite.
