Tomorrow Nov 1st, WLGT/Washington, NC (My Bridge FM) will have a new home. The station is moving its frequency from 98.3 to 97.5. Plus the WLGT power will double.
Founder Johnny Jones tells HisAir, “We’re going from 3kw to 6kw. We will serve eastern and coastal North Carolina with 97.5 and 104.5.”
On November 1st 2012, 98.3 The Bridge went on the air with the mission of building a bridge of hope and encouragement through positive music and a positive message to the Washington, Greenville, and New Bern, NC areas.
As is it’s usual tradition, WAKW/Cincinnati (Star 93.3) has flipped the switch to ALL Christmas on Oct 31st. As far as we know, It’s the first radio station broadcasting the sounds of the season this year. Why start playing Christmas music so early? According to the WAKW website – “We believe Christmas is the most joyful time of the year!”
WPOZ/Orlando (Z88.3) morning host Ellis B Feaster visited the 450,000 watt transmitter site of Trans World Radio, on the island of Bonaire, in the Dutch West Indies recently.
Ellis says, “I used to listen to this Caribbean radio station every night. I especially loved the radio drama they ran called, Unshackeled.”
The UCB Radio Canadian Radio Network listeners gave over $300,000 during their four-day pledge drive. The team just finished a 4-day Pledge Drive. In addition, the network is celebrating a partnership with Food Banks Canada and Mackay Insurance, who helped release 23,000 meals during the event to help combat food insecurity nationwide!
“We are so incredibly grateful for the generosity of so many people,” says UCB CEO James Hunt. “With the economic climate affecting us all, people dug deep to get behind their UCB Radio station. We get so moved by the stories and testimonies shared, stories of some very difficult situations, and then to see the number of people who choose to partner with UCB Radio to see Canada reached with the message of hope is so humbling. I think this highlights the increased needs people are facing.”
HisAir is sorry to report the passing of Steve Douglass, whose radio feature “Making Your Life Count” has been represented by Ambassador for many years.
Prayers are with his wife and partner in ministry, Judy, and with all the Douglass family.
