There’s a new Christian station on the air in Alaska. KABN/Kenai (AM 960) is a brand new license and apparently was not only built recently, but also sold to the same people who own a LPTV and non comm FMs in Anchorage. KABN is running Moody Radio’s Praise & Worship Christmas music programming. 

As first reported on HisAir (11-23-20) KNWS/Waterloo (Life 101.9) Production Director/On-Air Host Logan Roush (at left) will be joining sister Northwestern Media station KNWI/Des Moines (Life 107.1) as Afternoon Drive Host/Creative Services Director. 

Logan says “God has faithfully brought me from one chapter of life to the next. I am beyond delighted to be coming to Des Moines! I can’t wait to see what He holds in store and how I will be able to share His message of hope (and laughter) with central Iowa.”

Life 107.1 station manager Bruce Barrows is looking forward to having Logan join the team. “His enthusiasm, personality, skills, and passion for Christ will serve central Iowa, and the Life 107.1 team very well.”
