The Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission granted Praise FM/Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada a Class A radio license that gives the station a seven-year renewable operating certificate. Praise FM was launched as an internet station in 2016 by Rob Jones, pastor at Faith Baptist Church in Sydney. The new station call letters are CICB at 90.7 FM. It’s coverage footprint is 91,000 people and 43,000 households.
“Six years and $135,000 later, and we’re finally a legitimate faith-based radio station certified by the CRTC — we’re proud that we’re the first such station on Cape Breton Island,” said Jones, who added the station would not be possible if not for the generous support of his church, community and partners.
Ernie Haase & Signature Sound are joining with Michael W Smith for an epic version of his iconic hit, “Friends.” The group released the video collaboration on Friday, March 11, 2022 via their Facebook and YouTube channels.
Haase says: “We’ve crossed paths with Michael W. Smith many times during the years and I’ve always wanted to connect and collaborate but with all of our schedules, it just never worked out. During the pandemic, when no one was really traveling, we were able to make this a reality. This really was a dream come true.”
Houston based online station “A Better Gospel” adds show host is Kim Porter. When asked how she came to name the show, Porter replied “I love this name because where there is more prayer there is more power. My late great uncle Rev. Charles McCoy was a pastor in Dallas, TX and he often said, “Where there is no prayer, there is no power; where there is little prayer, there is little power, BUT where there is More Prayer! there is MORE POWER!”
More Prayer More Power airs Monday – Friday 7am to 8am and again from 9pm to 10pm.
