WKVE is an Album Oriented Rock formatted broadcast radio station licensed to Mount Pleasant, Pennsylvania, serving the Westmoreland County area and Southwestern Pennsylvania in particular. WKVE is owned and operated by Broadcast Communications Inc.


Formerly WANB-FM, the station had been simulcasting the broadcast day of sister station WANB. The station was previously licensed to Waynesburg, Pennsylvania, USA, and obtained a construction permit to change its city of license to Mount Pleasant, Pennsylvania, raise power, and move its tower to better serve southwestern Pennsylvania.

On March 9, 2009, the call letters were changed to WKVE.[1] One year later, on March 9, 2010, the station silenced its Waynesburg transmitter and began broadcasting from its new facilities, repeating a "loop" directing former WANB listeners to that station's other frequencies, 1210 AM and 105.1 FM, and announcing the current format which debuted on May 4, 2010 on 103.1.

Call Sign

The WKVE callsign was originally used at WDDH in St. Mary's, Pennsylvania, when that station - then built and owned by Broadcast Communications Inc., aired a similar format. The callsign was previously used by WKVK, a K-LOVE affiliate, licensed to Semora, North Carolina. Though similar, WKVE's callsign is not a "nod" to nearby WDVE in Pittsburgh.

On-Air Schedule

The morning show on WKVE is hosted by veteran Pittsburgh personality Dennis Elliott, from 6 to 9 a.m. Monday through Friday. There are no other live on-air personalities on the station, except for occasional remote broadcasts.
