Fundraising Updates:

Positive Life Radio/Walla Walla, WA is celebrating a massive victory in the Spring Fundraiser, with a current total at 109% of goal, and still climbing.

“Our Spring Fundraiser was an overwhelming success, ending at 109% of the goal! A big thank you to the Vidare team for help before, during, and after,” said Station Manager Chris Gilbreth.

Vidare Creative’s Director of Radio, Garrett Michaels, added, “With Positive Life Radio’s expanding footprint in the Northwest, it’s evident that God is using the ministry to reach more and more people with the right song at the right time!

KNEO/Neosho, MO is in the process of putting up a new 340ft free-standing tower to replace our existing tower which has some wear and tear starting to show up on it.

Director of Operations Adam Winkler tells HisAir, “This was not something we had planned to do but the Lord did! The project will end up costing us around $315,000 when it is all said and done. The Lord has been faithful to meet our financial needs every step of the way. Our listeners have given sacrificially and we are so thankful for that. We still have more funds to raise but we know God will provide. Bell Tower Corporation from Chelsea, OK made the tower for us, and Wallace Tower Specialist from Franklin, AR is handling the installation.”

The new tower is projected to be up and going by May 31, 2023.

Throughout the month of April, KGGN/Hemet, CA (102.5 The Vine) hosted “The  25,000 Gift Card Challenge.” The Vine asked listeners to provide a gift card that will be given to nonprofit partners Reach – which supports local survivors of human trafficking, and Birthchoice – a local Pregnancy Resource Center.

“It was amazing to hear of churches, small groups, and even a men’s softball team getting behind this community collection ministry event. Southwest Riverside County showed up, just like we knew they would,” says Chris Thompson, General Manager of 102.5 The Vine.

ALERT: There’s only 5 weeks until Momentum 2023 ... Momentum starts May 31st in Orlando.

Christian Classic Hits station “Classic HIS Radio” has been launched by Radio Training Network on WHRT/Cokesbury/Greenwood (91.9) and W209CM/Simpsonville/Greenville (89.7) which are being transmitted via 89.3 WLFJ-HD4/Greenville. Previously, the signals had aired Christian Preaching “HIS Radio Talk” until the beginning of this month.

After playing Christmas music as a teaser, the station has now switched to the new format which plays Christian hits from the 1980s and 1990s.
