KJTM LP/Lincoln (TiM FM) adds KMWC/Bethany MO (89.9) as its first network affiliate. Bethany is located halfway between Kansas City and Des Moines on interstate 35.

Tim FM founder Brad Leggett says, “We will reach not only the residents in and around Bethany but also the millions of cars that travel up and down the interstate. Please pray for us as we add this station to our ministry.”

Last week on Giving Tuesday, WONU/Chicago (Shine.FM) flipped the scenario to a Community Give Back. Living out their purpose of transformation through collaboration, Shine.FM worked with Hands of Hope and Bible League International as hundreds of cars lined up to have their trunks filled with food, Bibles and other resources were shared, and area pastors prayed with each family.

Executive Director Brian McIntyre Utter says, “It was a day of tears and gratefulness. The final car arrived as clean up was happening. The couple had been living in a shed and were now living out of their car. They hadn’t eaten in two days. Their car was filled with food and staff even gave them their own gloves on this frigid day.”
