Our Future

We are thrilled to tell you of the very exciting development for KCEP:

The 1923 Westside School and Campus where KCEP resided is now a Historical Landmark on the National Registry.

KCEP moved out of the 1923 Westside School for rehabilitation purposes and moved next door into the newly renovated 1948 building.  Both buildings are on the 1923 Westside School Campus located at 330 West Washington Avenue in Las Vegas (89106) on the corner of the newly renovated “D” Street.

KCEP is currently upgrading into a Multimedia Center, a place for students to train for future careers in Broadcasting, Digital Media and Online Programming.

There will be two more HD Channels launched in 2018

HD 2 – 24/7 Gospel Channel
HD 3 – Teen Radio Channel

KCEP serves the community and is a resource to over 200,000 listeners on a weekly basis.

KCEP has a long history in the Las Vegas community, dating back to its humble beginnings at Nucleus Plaza (formerly the Golden West Shopping Center) in 1972 with just 10 watts.  (Now 10,000 watts)

For more than 45 years, KCEP has prospered thanks to the dedication and perseverance of a passionate community.

With your support, KCEP has an opportunity to flourish into a modern day digital facility that will enhance its abilities to serve the community.
