Forever In Our Hearts

KRIM 96.3FM is a Low Power FM (LP-FM) community focused radio station that transmits 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and uses no satellite feeds. Established in 2002, KRIM was the first licensed LP-FM station in Arizona. We feature local musicians and actively promote all live music performances in and around Payson.


We support the local schools through the broadcasting and announcing of high school sporting events, the FFA (Future Farmers of America) News Blast, and other numerous activities. We are a supporter of Payson Little League, Rim Country Optimist, Mazatzal Optimist, Soroptimist, Rotary, Lion & Lioness Clubs, Humane Society of Central Arizona, Payson Pro Rodeo Committee, Payson Community Kids and other local non-profit organizations. We have a daily Community Spotlight program that highlights our town, local organizations, businesses, events, and individuals in the community.


We provide entertainment at our Payson Farmers Market, Beeline Classic Car Show, Relay for Life, Optimist Fishing Festival, along with many other events throughout the Rim Country.

KRIM is fully funded by the community it serves through the non-profit corporation, Payson Council for the Musical Arts, Inc. All contributions, underwriting, sponsorships, or other financial support to KRIM is tax deductible.


We thank all of you for your support and hope you enjoy our music!
