JemRadio was started in Hopewell Road, St. Vincent and the Grenadines on February 9th, 2007 by Reni King an experienced broadcast technician. From his bedroom the station streamed around the world via the internet. Soon after, Dennis the brother of Reni, began managing the programming of the station, which was gospel based and invited a number of his online friends to become involved.
With its growing popularity, communication between the announcers and their listeners became necessary and as the small bedroom could not facilitate this, the station had to be moved to the dining room table. Microphones and other radio equipment soon replaced the usual dining table setting and diners had to manoeuvre around these new dining accessories to enjoy their meal. Realizing the impact the station was making and the dire need for adequate spacing, Claudina King, the mother of Reni and Dennis King, donated her flower garden space, at the front of their home for the construction of a studio building for JemRadio.
In October of 2008, construction began after a ground breaking ceremony. The building of JemRadio's studio was a true test of faith, with little money and limited resources the family and friends all jumped in to see this project go forward. Members of the JemRadio community also worked tirelessly, in blazing sun and pouring rain to construct the studio building. Donations were made by a number of supporters, some monatory and others in the form of building materials, labour and well wishes. A number of contributions were made from online supporters who were motivated by the exercise of courage and faith exhibited by the King family. Soon after the building was completed.
On Friday, July 17th, 2009 at 12:00 p.m sharp JemRadio began officially broadcasting to the Marriaqua community as a Community Radio Station on the frequency 89.1FM. On November 22nd, 2009 the studio building was dedicated and JemRadio was officially launched to the Vincentian community of Marriaqua and the wider world as a non-profit gospel radio station.
Persons from within the Marriaqua community and beyond began volunteering their time and talents to JemRadio. Their contributions added variety and spice to the JemRadio programming. The station became known for delivering to its listeners uplifting, quality gospel music and programming in a simple refreshing format
