ZCCR 94.1 FM is a full gospel radio station, located at Little Dicks Road, East End, Tortola, British Virgin Islands. It is owned and operated by the Upper Room Victory Church, led by Overseer/Bishop Mervin S. Herbert. This Christian Radio Station came alive in 2005, when founder Bishop Mervin S. Herbert followed his passion for radio and reaching souls for God.
After moving to the British Virgin Islands in 1969 from his native country, Nevis. Bishop Herbert pursued a correspondence course in electronics and worked in that trade. In later years, he spent quite a bit of time at ZBVI Radio, which is owned by his older brother, Merit Herbert and sometimes "held on" for radio announcers. In 1993, when his nephew, Rodney Herbert started ZROD FM Radio, Bishop Herbert began what has become the very popular 'Morning Inspiration' programme. He was encouraged by his nephew, Rodney, to open a gospel radio station, but had to lay that thought aside, because of the contruction of the Upper Room Victory Church sanctuary, which was ongoing at the time.
However, after completion of the church sanctuary in 1999, he applied to the BVI Government for a license to operate a radio station, which was granted in 2004. ZCCR 94.1 FM then became a reality and began testing in February 2005. At that time, it could only be heard in certain parts of the territory, but was later upgraded to full power and now covers the entire British and United States Virgin Islands. Today, www.zccrfm.com enables us to reach the world. The station was officially lanuched on Sunday, July 10th, 2005, at the Upper Room Victory Church.
ZCCR is outfitted with state of the art studio equipment that guarantees smooth, easy listening and the best sound that can be achieved. Along with the main studio, the station is complete with a production studio room capable of seating up to twelve persons.
