KVMX (890 AM) is an Olivehurst, California, Class B radio station operating with 10,000 watts of power during the day and 480 watts at night from separate day and night transmitter sites. The station is owned by Lotus Broadcasting through licensee Lotus Sacramento Corp. and targets the Sacramento area.[1]

The station signed on in the summer of 2014, carrying programming from sister FM station KMJE-FM. It also broadcasts via translator K284CM on 104.7 MHz, licensed to Sacramento.

On June 30, 2016, the then-KMJE was granted an FCC construction permit to move the night transmitter site to the day transmitter site at KTKZ and decrease night power to 270 watts. The station changed its call sign to the current KVMX on April 17, 2017.[2]
