After 7 years with the station Summer Shepherd did her last afternoon show on WNWC/Madison (Life 102.5) last Friday before relocating to the nations capital. 

“To say my emotions are bittersweet would be putting things lightly. I have loved my time with Northwestern more than I can say. It’s a family I never thought I’d leave,” said Shepherd. “The solace is knowing that I have found another amazing family in WGTS. Having gone to school to be a missionary, I can see God working clearly as He opens doors to a true mission field in Washington, D.C. Our family is so excited to be stepping into this new role and new world, eager to see what God is going to do.”

She starts at WGTS/Wash DC April 3rd. She will join existing host Jerry Woods and producer Claude Jennings replacing former co-host Blanca Vega who resigned in Oct 2022 after 10 years to focus on her health and family. 


WSCF/Vero Beach (Christian FM) held its Spring Fundraiser earlier this month. 

National Affiliations Director Geoff Moore tells HisAir, “Our community is eager for more hope and encouragement, and we feel blessed to have so many generous donors who keep 91.9 WSCF on the air. We look forward to seeing how God will use the station in our community this coming year and pray that he will continue to use the music and our personalities to touch hearts and lives.”

Katie Mieras, Director of Development says “Our past two fundraisers have faced tremendous challenges; our transmitter was struck by lightning and was not operational during one and then Russia invaded Ukraine during the other. In spite of these past challenges, as well as inflation, and consumer pessimism, we are happy to report that we met and exceeded our spring fundraising goal.”
