Dave Dent Otradovsky is the owner and General Manager of KVSH-AM in Valentine – the only station he has worked for in his 49-year radio career. Dave began his career at KVSH in 1969 as a fulltime DJ, spinning LP’s, 45’s and reel to reels. A short time later Dave moved into sales before becoming the station’s Program Director and in 1990, he formed Heart City Radio and purchased KVSH. He continues to operate KVSH with live, local DJ’s seven days a week providing live news, weather, area high school sports and emergency bulletins. His live and local operation supplies steady employment while launching the radio careers of dozens of people. Countless community organizations have benefitted from Dave’s generosity through fundraisers, drives, radiothons and the volunteering of his own time.
