KCBI/Dallas is celebrating 40 years of ministry in Dallas Fort Worth by honoring the legacy partners which have enhanced the radio station’s impact. 90.9 KCBI recognized each of these longtime ministry partners during a reception at the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) Convention on Feb. 24. KCBI began broadcasting in Dallas May 17, 1976. Forty years later, the radio ministry is still sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ in Dallas Fort Worth and beyond.
Radio programmer Tate Luck has started his own consultancy company. For over 20 years Tate has helped stations from Charlotte, Columbus, Nashville, Orlando. Tate says,” I believe that Christian radio is one of the most important media tools that we have to get the gospel out! I want to help stations be more effective in connecting with their audience and help grow listenership.” Tate’s services will be scalable to the needs of the individual radio station. Tate exited his position at WPOZ/Orlando (Z88.3) in October.
