WKYV (100.3 MHz) is a commercial FM radio station, licensed to Petersburg, Virginia and serving the Greater Richmond Region in Virginia. The station is branded as "K-Love" and features a Contemporary Christian format. The station is owned by Educational Media Foundation (EMF). WKYV's transmitter is located off Johnson Road in Petersburg.
Prior to becoming K-Love in 2017, the station was owned by Alpha Media. The station featured a country music format branded as "The Wolf," and was part of a simulcast with sister station WLFV. On December 5, 2016, EMF filed an application with the FCC to purchase both WARV-FM and WLFV.
On April 24, 2017, WARV-FM became WKYV as part of a call letter exchange with its sister station on 90.1 FM in Colonial Heights (the WARV-FM calls were a better match for that station's new identity as part of EMF's Air1 network).
