KNWI/Des Moines (Life 107.1) hit the switch and turned up its power to 100,000 watts on a tower 995 feet tall at 12:00 noon on TODAY, Tuesday, October 26th
A KNWI listener who had won the opportunity flipped the switch, and Life 107.1 began broadcasting on one strong, clear signal to Des Moines and central Iowa. The station has been broadcasting on 3 reduced power frequencies. The new signal will allow them to reach more listeners using only one strong signal.
Since receiving approval to increase the station power and tower height, the team at Life 107.1 has been working to raise the funds necessary to raise the tower. The project, Operation Strong Tower, concluded with an on-air fundraising event in December 2020.
“God blessed our socks off, and the Life 107.1 team is so encouraged!”, says station manager Bruce Barrows. “Listeners caught the vision for this new tower and met our fundraising goal of $400,000 almost 6 hours early. This time next year, Life 107.1 will be sharing the love and hope of Jesus with all of Des Moines and central Iowa on one strong signal.” Construction of the new tower has begun and is expected to be completed after winter.
