WAWZ/New York  (Star 99.1) delivers hope to radio listeners on the other side of the world. After some recent studio renovations at Star 99.1, the station was privileged to send some of their used but still working equipment to a station in Nepal.  The audio equipment from Star 99.1 will be used in the Good News FM studio in Kathmandu, Nepal.  This is the only Gospel FM station in SAARC countries.  Led by Mr. Kumar Bist, the radio station broadcasts Christian content in spoken word, online call-in interviews, music, and more daily across the KTM valley.  The station is considering applying to the government to expand their reach and broadcast strength. To be able to do this, their equipment was in need of upgrading. The sound board donated by Star 99.1 will be a significant step up and will add a degree of clarity to the source signal. This enhancement of the source signal will inherently expand the reach of their current equipment. The sound board in conjunction with higher-quality mics that were donated will help this station reach people with the hope of the Gospel in an unstable and often hostile location.
