Tom Taylors Now Newsletter reports: Three not-for-profit FMs in Oklahoma sell to Houston Christian Broadcasters for $250,000 cash. The three stations are KFXH Marlow, 88.7/A. KFXT Sulphur, 90.7/C3. And KFXU Chickasha, 90.5/C3. The additions bring Bruce Munsterman of Houston Christian Broadcasters up to 30 stations, mostly concentrated in Texas and Oklahoma. The flagship is Christian teaching KHCB/Houston (105.7).
Congratulations to the staff at KSBJ/Houston. The station is 100% fully funded after completing its recent Sharathon Friday night. “The stories of how God uses KSBJ to bring people hope still continue to amaze me,” shared KSBJ President and General Manager, Tim McDermott. “I thanked a woman for volunteering and she thanked me for KSBJ. She tearfully shared how God used the station to bring her home as she sat by the hospital bed with her husband with ALS. She wanted to give back, and that is what we are seeing at Sharathon. We are seeing lives impacted, lives encouraged and lives touched by the ministry of KSBJ.”
