The program was produced, directed, and narrated by Valley PBS CEO Jeff Aiello. KMJ Program Director Blake Taylor also served as a producer on the film.

“KMJ’s John Broeske said, ‘When KMJ went on the air, people didn’t have radios.’ That is one of the great lines from the film that really speaks to me. The longevity, the success, and the impact of KMJ for over a century is really remarkable,” Taylor said. “To be a small part of that is truly meaningful.”

“It is a remarkably humbling experience to be a part of this documentary celebrating KMJ’s 100 years of serving the community,” said Cumulus Fresno Regional Vice President/Market Manager Patty Hixson. “I am grateful to have been with this heritage brand since the late 80’s. The entire KMJ team is excited to share our story through this documentary – and we’re thrilled that the film has been nominated for an Emmy!”

Winners of the the 53rd Northern California Emmy Awards Gala will be held on Saturday, June 15th at the San Francisco Hilton.
