Word Broadcasting Network announced that they have entered into an LMA agreement with Salem Media Group to to operate Louisville stations (WFIA AM; WFIA FM; WGTK AM) starting January 3rd, 2017.  Word Broadcasting Vice President Jim Fraser said, “As our Contemporary Christian Music station 88.5 WJIE enters it’s 29th year on the air, we are excited to be simulcasting WJIE on AM-900 and on it’s 107.3 translator so more listeners can enjoy that format.”   

Salem CEO Ed Atsinger stated, “Salem rarely leaves a market because we desire that our unique formats will continue to serve the needs of audiences in cities like Louisville. This agreement is unique in that Word Broadcasting is like-minded with us in shared mission, shared values, and passion for our formats. For some time our two organizations have discussed how we could consolidate our respective operations in the interest of greater stewardship of our resources. We believe this agreement sets the stage to achieve that objective of increased service to our audiences and stakeholders.”
