The JOY FM/Tampa went on the air this morning in Tennessee. Radio Training Network acquired WALV/Ooltewah/Chattanooga TN (95.3) and translator W295BI/Chattanooga (106.9) from seller Brewer Media for $900,000 earlier this year.  WALV is a Class C3 with 3400 watts @ 902 ft.

The Tennessee signal adds to a number of FM stations and translators covering a large area of Florida, Georgia, and Alabama. “We’ve said for a long time, it’s not about shared sidewalks, but shared hearts.” said GM Carmen Brown, “However, our sidewalks are growing! We are thrilled to move into Tennessee, and having a local presence in Chattanooga feels very special. We know there are people in East Tennessee and Northwest Georgia the Lord wants to make part of the JOY FM family, and we can’t wait to meet them!”

The JOY FM is heard by more than 1 million weekly listeners

Programming for The JOY FM Chattanooga will include the lineup of The Morning Cruise with Dave, Bill, and Carmen, Candice in the Middays, The Jayar Show afternoons, and Evenings with Michelle Tellone. In addition to 95.3, The JOY FM will provide LF Radio (Positive Hits & Hip Hop) on 92.7 FM and JOY Worship at 106.9 FM.

Hope 1032/New South Wales, AUS welcomes new Breakfast show co-host Danniebelle. Previously she was with Hillsong for 14 years with both the TV and music teams producing videos and managing video content for the music bands until she left in 2023. 

She actually met her morning show co-host Brendan 10 years ago. “We can sit and talk, laugh; for years we used to joke “we need our own show!”

Danniebelle says, “It’s God’s timing that we’re here now. I’m so grateful for Brendan’s friendship and brothership. We have this great dynamic that we can bring hope together on the radio. However, God must get the glory and that’s what we’re here for. I’m excited to do this with the whole Hope team.”

CRISTA Media stations KCMS/Seattle (Spirit 105.3) and KWPZ/Bellingham, WA (Praise 106.5) teamed with their sister ministry World Concern for a day on each station healing kids in poverty through the 44 Cent Cure.

Thanks to the generosity of CRISTA listeners, over 132,000 children will receive medication to relieve them from the pain and sickness caused by intestinal parasites.

“It was truly inspiring to see listeners generously supporting the cure for so many children in need. We deeply appreciate World Concern and their initiative with the $.44 cure, and we’re thankful for the opportunity to be part of this campaign,” said Channah Hanberg, Vice President of CRISTA Media.

Finney Media presents its first Webin8 Presentation hosted by Senior Talent Coach Beth Bacall tomorrow. In this eight-minute online event, Beth will share top tips for elevating your sound to stay fresh and relevant.
