KCMI/Terrytown, NE (97.1 Christian Media Inc) GM Russ Garrett celebrates 20 years with the station. He found Christ while listening to KCMI in 1990. “We have no idea who’s out there listening. Just like this station didn’t have any idea I was out there listening. Then I show up here at the station and they hear my story. It’s like, ‘Wow.’ … That’s what’s exciting about showing up here and doing what we do. On the other end of the radio somebody may turn that on and then watch God do something.”Russ is featured in a story in local press. Check it out HERE.
