In 2009, the long-running Jamboree radio program moved from its longtime home of WWVA, where it had aired from 1933 until its cancellation in the mid-2000s, to WKKX. The Jamboree is the third longest running radio program in the US behind the Grand Ole Opry and Music and the Spoken Word.[1] The Jamboree moved to WWOV no later than 2016.
