Y-105 KVTY-FM (Lewiston, Idaho)

“Music for the X & Y Generation”

Y-105 is the go-to radio station for the family on-the-go with an eclectic blend of Top 40 artists along with hits from the 2000s. Listeners can get their morning buzz during the ‘Coffee Talk’ morning show with interactive questionnaires and trivia. Y-105 keeps the energy going with the ‘Midday’ show, gets it pumping with ‘Afternoon Joyride’, and soothes the soul with ‘Good Nights’ in the evenings.

Events:

Super Sale
The Super Sale is the region’s largest indoor yard sale and auction. It’s held annually in February and attendance reaches nearly 5,000 people, with hundreds of vendors and business with goods on display and ready to buy.

4 Hour Food Drive
This is a food drive with a sweet spin. The 4 Hour Food Drive challenges four different nonprofit organizations to collect as much food as they can in one hour, back to back at a local grocery store. The nonprofit that comes up with the most food wins advertising for their organization.

Community Spirit Fireworks
The Community Spirit Fireworks show at Adam’s Field in Clarkston is the best celebration of our Nation’s independence for miles. The 30-year old tradition is fully funded and put together by a non-profit organization made up of IdaVend Broadcasting staff and ownership.

Nez Perce County Fair Karaoke Contest
The fair’s largest attraction of Saturday night is the karaoke contest hosted and promoted by Y-105. More than 500 people gather and watch the 30+ acts preform in an attempt to win cash and prizes!

 Non-Profit Connect Fair
IdaVend Broadcasting is committed to helping people identify causes and organizations they can either support or benefit from in our region. That is why we developed the Non Profit Connect Fair, a free event designed to let nonprofit organizations connect with the public and build awareness about their cause.

 Holiday Heroes Food Drive
The Holiday Heroes Food Drive has been happening for more than five years and has fed collectively, thousands of families around our region. Each December, we put together food bags that are made available for purchase for one day with the hope of collecting as many as possible. The food drive is done in cooperation with Rosauers grocery of Lewiston, Id. and the Idaho Food Bank.

Community Involvement:

YWCA  ‘SOUPport Our Shelters’

Local chefs come out to “SOUPort Our Shelter,” a fundraiser that cooks up and sells soup for the region’s primary domestic violence shelter. The Lewiston fire and police departments also tie on aprons for this great cause.

Lewis Clark State College Welcome Fair

The beginning of a new semester means a welcoming event at the Lewis-Clark State College, ‘Welcome Fair’. The event is designed to welcome returning students and orients new students with services, clubs, and organizations.
