KDWG Mission Statement
KDWG's mission is to provide a non-commercial, alternative-oriented radio station for the students, faculty, and staff of the University of Montana-Western and the broader Dillon, Montana community.
In the fall of 1998, the students at the University of Montana-Western (then Western Montana College) voted to implement a fee to fund a student-operated radio station. KDWG filed for their FCC application on May 13, 1999. Approval by the FCC was granted on November 28, 2000. The staff of KDWG then proceeded to construct studio facilities, develop programming, and train on-air DJ's. KDWG's first broadcast aired on January 17, 2001.
