Jan. 2 marks the date of the very first time a religious program aired on radio. In 1921 KDKA/Pittsburgh featured a religious service from the Calvary Episcopal Church and marked the first time the station had provided a remote broadcast. Although the broadcast was a landmark moment for religious broadcasting, the senior pastor of the church did not participate, leaving his junior associate to conduct the service. The Calvary services eventually became a regular Sunday evening program on KDKA until 1962.
Chesapeake-Portsmouth Broadcasting is selling Spanish Christian WCPK/Chesapeake, VA (AM 1600) to Hosanna Media Christian Group for $250,000.
