KKHJ-FM (93.1 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Hot AC-leaning Top 40 format. Licensed to Pago Pago, American Samoa, United States, it serves American Samoa. The station is currently owned by South Seas Broadcasting, Inc.[2] It originally signed on in November 1999 with a Hot AC format.[1] South Seas Broadcasting is owned by Larry Fuss, Kirk Harnack, Joey Cummings and Smitty Lutu.[3] Joey Cummings in the General Manager. The station operates from facilities on the second floor of the Pago Plaza office complex in Pago Pago. Transmitting facilities are located atop Mt. Alava, overlooking Pago Harbor.

The station was assigned the KKHJ-FM call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on June 26, 2007, after having previously operated as KHJS-FM.[4]

93KHJ has a 3-person local news team, which is rather unusual for a small-market radio station. Headed by veteran News Director Monica Miller, 93KHJ produces daily newscasts in both English and Samoan. Newscasts are also heard on sister-station WVUV-FM.
