KMMT has been the Eastern Sierra's source for great music, local news, and expert weather forecasts since 1971. KMMT strives to educate, inform, and entertain our local and visiting listening audience, over 3 million listeners a year.
KMMT broadcasts from Mammoth Lakes, CA. Mammoth Lakes is home to the world class ski and mountain biking resort, Mammoth Mountain. Mammoth is a tourism town year round that caters to skiers and snowboarders in the winter and to anglers, bikers, hikers, climbers, and backpackers in the summer. There is always something exciting going on in Mammoth, and KMMT is a part of it all.
Yosemite National park is just 45 miles north of Mammoth Lakes on the Highway 395, and KMMT broadcasts to all 1 million visitors that come to experience the majesty of the park each summer. The Mammoth/Yosemite airport provides daily flights from Los Angeles in the Summer and from San Diego, San Jose, Orange County, and San Francisco in the Winter.
The format of KMMT has recently changed to an independent and alternative radio station that plays music for music lovers. At KMMT, we believe that there is too much good music to play bad music. We are one of the last "ma and pa" radio stations in the country that has the freedom to play up and coming artists and genres of music not touched by the big commercial radio stations.

The 2018 Blake Jones Trout Derby is set for Saturday, March 17th in Bishop. It’s Saint Patrick’s Day, so everyone is sure to have great luck. Since 1968, the Blake Jones Trout Derby has been a favorite event in the Eastern Sierra. “We did have to skip 2017 due to unprecedented winter snowfall and extreme runoff conditions, but we're back on track and it’s going to be bigger and better than ever,” explains April Leeson, derby coordinator.
Every year, nearly $10,000 worth of cash and prizes are awarded including float tubes, rods & reels, gift certificates to local shops and restaurants and much, much more!
New for 2018...check-in, weigh-in, and awards ceremony will be at Eastern Sierra Tri-County Fairgrounds in downtown Bishop. Fishing locations are the same as always - Pleasant Valley Reservoir and Owens River.
"Since it is the 50th anniversary, we wanted to enhance the derby by offering information booths, educational displays, kids' casting games, activities and entertainment," explains Leeson. The fairgrounds is the perfect venue and it's close to downtown hotels and restaurants. For those who don't want to drive to and from Pleasant Valley, a free shuttle bus will run continuously all day between the reservoir and the fairgrounds.
The Blake Jones derby is a blind bogey format with categories for adults and kids of all ages. In addition to the blind bogey awards, there will be prizes for early bird registrations, farthest travel, biggest fish, even prizes for those who don't catch any fish or choose to catch & release. There will be special drawings for a brand new Dave Scadden inflatable kayak, a beautiful quilt made from previous years' Blake Jones T-Shirts and themed basket raffles.
Registration is now open. You can sign up online at www.bishopvisitor.com or drop by the Bishop Chamber of Commerce, 690 North Main Street.
The Blake Jones Trout Derby is co-sponsored by Inyo County and the City of Bishop, plus many other generous prize sponsors. For more information, contact the Bishop Chamber at (760)873-8405.
