About VCY America

VCY America seeks to advance the gospel thru every legitimate means. The history of VCY has been described as God’s Continuing Miracle.

Among our ministries, most people are familiar with our broadcast outreaches. At the urging of three teenagers, a 30 minute radio program in 1961 under the direction of Vic Eliason grew into a 24/7 radio station, WVCY-FM.

Today, under Executive Director Jim Schneider, the VCY America Radio Network features solid Biblical teaching programs, live call-in programs on issues of concern to the Christian community, news and commentary, children’s programs, and conservative, uplifting Christian music.

There are currently 53 owned & operated stations: 29 full-power stations across the Midwest and Southwest, plus 24 low power “translator” stations, in addition to 81 “affiliate” stations that carry VCY programs.

WVCY-TV is a 24/7 television station in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Similar to the radio network, it features Biblical teaching, live-call in programs, news and commentary, children’s programs, and music programming. You can watch it online at VCYAmerica.tv
