Family Life Radio/Tucson (FLR) Love Your Neighbor Christmas Edition campaign encourages people to nominate an unsung hero who could use a blessing of their own.

“People are hearing the needs of complete strangers and calling in without hesitation to help during a very busy season. We are seeing the love of Jesus being poured out through the airwaves, from one phone call to another,” said Mike Kankelfritz, FLR’s Chief Broadcast Engagement Officer.

The Love Your Neighbor Campaign will continue through December 22. 

Before the deadline last Friday, 1,336 low-power FM stations submitted applications, according to the FCC.

The filing window, the first for LPFMs since 2013, faced several challenges leading up to its conclusion. Initially, the FCC postponed the window’s opening by more than a month. Subsequently, after LPFM advocates discovered a security vulnerability in the FCC’s Licensing and Management System (LMS), the filing window was extended by a few days.

Next, FCC staff will assess the applications to identify mutually exclusive (MX) groups and “singletons”—applications that do not conflict with any others.
