History[edit]

First went on air as KRSB in 1953 to represent the Riverside/San Bernardino area, KRSB was a locally oriented station to expanded into formats involving the public good, educational programs, multicultural shows, classical music and the community. KVCR took the NPR affiliation in the spring of 1970 and a year later, was among the 80 stations in the U.S., and five in California, to air the first edition of All Things Considered. Prior to July 2005, KVCR was branded as Inland Public Radio airing a mix of news and classical music syndicated from Classical 24 on middays and evenings. The classical music programming was dropped due to the lack of fund raising support.[1] KVCR is the primary affiliate for National Public Radio, Public Radio International and American Public Media in the Riverside/San Bernardino market.

When Talk of the Nation, which KVCR aired on tape-delay, was cancelled in March 2013 by NPR, KVCR made adjustments to its daytime schedule, adding a second hour of Here and Now at 10am, and clearing Day to Day for broadcast in the afternoon. Fresh Air was moved to 3pm, leading into All Things Considered. KVCR's afternoon schedule is now nearly identical to that of KCRW in Santa Monica, the exceptions being local news breaks.

KVCR FM/TV is owned by the San Bernardino Community College District and is physically located on the San Bernardino Valley College campus.
