New station WFPW/Battens Crossroads, AL (91.1) has gone on the air programming music and religious shows hosted by local ministers. The owner is Travis Arrington who says funding for the new station will come from donations and churches that purchase air-time to broadcast their services.  Station website is HERE.

WCLQ/Wausau (89Q) is receiving a big donation thanks to a contest. 89Q is getting $15,000 from Thrivent. Organizations were able to request a song for a virtual concert they’re hosting this month with Chris Tomlin. He will then perform the songs from now until Christmas Eve online.

“We just look at our listeners and say, ‘They are just so good, and faithful, and we’re grateful for them,” 89Q General Manager Coy Sawyer said. “And then of course, to Thrivent, we’re so grateful.”

89Q plans to use its money to complete an upgrade at the station. Watch local TV coverage HERE.
