Internet Radio stations and Television From: American Samoa

The radio station that many people know as 93 KHJ is an English-based broadcaster, based in Pago Pago city, American Samoa. This station has a very long history. It went on air for the first time in 1922. Most of the entertainment programs it broadcasts are in strongly inclined to Spanish.

Before the station changed its format, it was one of the most radio stations in America, especially prior to 1970. When the broadcast went on air for the first time, there were many interference problems. These problems forced engineers to shift their frequencies. During the 1920, it was the work of the Federal Radio commission to oversee the establishment of a new order in the broadcasting industry.

At one time in the 1930’s KHJ was assigned the 900 kHz channel which required 1000 watts in order to transmit. The same channel and power were maintained until late 1941. From that time onwards, AM broadcasting was reorganized by the Federal Communications Commission. The reorganization work was done in collaboration with North American Treaty Organization. This is when KHJ was allowed raise 5,000 watts of power. The frequency also increased to 930 kHz. This radio has retained operations on this same frequency to this today.

It is worth mentioning here that 93 KHJ radio was originally the property of Los Angeles Times, a newspaper publisher. This explains why for some time in the 1920’s, this radio was operating as an affiliate of West Coast production center for CBS radio network. In this capacity, the station was the originating center for many programs, including Bing Crosby’s radio show that premiered in 1931.

In 1965, Bill Drake, a programming consultant, contributed to the ranking of 93KHJ among America’s top 40 radio stations. In the new format, playlists were built on a very “tight” sound that enabled the station to give listeners a very unique taste that they could get from no other American radio station.
