About KMVT:

KMVT, Your Hometown Station, is the dominate news source for Twin Falls and Southern Idaho. Twin Falls is home to Shoshone Falls, which is 45’ taller than Niagara Falls, and is only a ten minute drive from the television station. The Perrine Bridge, which crosses over the Snake River, is the only man-made structure where BASE jumping is legal. This bridge is almost 500’ above the Snake River itself! Within an hour and a half drive of the station, you’ll find four ski mountains, the City of Rocks National Reserve, Craters of the Moon National Monument, 48’ tall Balanced Rock, the Shoshone Ice Caves, Bruneau Sand Dunes, Jackpot, Nevada and too many unique hiking trails to count! If you are an outdoorsy person, I promise, you will not be bored!!! When the snow melts you can enjoy mountain biking, hiking, fishing, and picnics. Take in views of the massive Snake River Canyon or tee off surrounded by canyon walls and dazzling waterfalls.
