Where the past meets the present!

We want to educate people on the vital role FREE

over-the-air broadcasting has ALWAYS played

and continues to play to this day. Especially Now!

This museum will document important history and will remind us of who we are & how far we have come.

 …and perhaps show us some ways to make the future better!


 Radio and TV continue to do SO MUCH for our State!

 Here’s a way to recognize and honor the people who work VERY hard to make radio & TV happen,

24 hours a day, 365 days a year!

 Broadcasting is over 100 years old in Idaho.  This is important “history” we are preserving

and celebrating; the past, present & future.
