KRMJ – Grand Junction 

In the early 1980s, KRMJ was the dream of a pioneering group of state and local educators. With community support the dream was realized in the winter of 1996 when KRMJ opened in Grand Junction.

KRMJ serves Western Slope communities from the Roaring Fork Valley to Durango. The advantages of having a full-power public television station were viewed as an investment in the educational and economic future of Western Colorado.

As a community outlet for the regional network of Rocky Mountain PBS, KRMJ provides exceptional programming, educational services, production and videoconferencing services to the Grand Valley community and the Western Slope.

With an experienced and professional staff, KRMJ provides broadcast, production, satellite and teleconference services.  The KRMJ studio is co-located with Colorado Mesa University's television studio and the KRMJ business office is located at 414 Main Street, sharing space with Colorado Public Radio in historic downtown Grand Junction.

Services include:

  • Expanded public broadcast programming.
  • Locally produced programming serving local needs.
  • Global teleconferencing
  • Technical training and continuing education via microwave and satellite links
