WMIT/Black Mountain (106.9 The Light) can now be heard on 101.3 FM in portions of western North Carolina. The new signal reaches towns that formerly couldn’t hear 106.9 The Light including Franklin, N.C.; Cherokee, N.C.; and Cullowhee, N.C., home of Western Carolina University. It will also give the station a second spot on FM in Sylva, N.C., and portions of Waynesville, N.C.

“We’ve received many requests over the years for an interference-free presence in Macon, Jackson and Swain Counties so we’re excited that our station’s music and Bible teaching is now theirs for the listening, loud and clear, at 101.3 FM,” said Jim Kirkland, the executive director of Blue Ridge Broadcasting. “Ultimately, being able to reach over 81,000 more people with the hope of Jesus Christ is a profound blessing to our ministry.”

106.9 The Light, operated by Blue Ridge Broadcasting, currently has the nation’s 12th largest FM radio coverage area, reaching portions of seven states. In North Carolina alone, it now reaches from Charlotte to North Wilkesboro and over through Asheville to Franklin.
