Their 9-day fundraiser had goals set bigger than ever before. Lift Worship was the first station to meet its goal, quickly followed by 89.5 KVNE.

“It was our most successful Spring Fundraiser in our 40-year history with record breaking numbers. The heart behind each station, employee, volunteer & giver could be felt. We’re praising God for the honor of getting to shine His light in this East Texas community for 40 years & we’re hopeful He will let us continue for another 40!”, said Chad Stanley, VP of Development.

“I’m honored to be leading our talented Tampa/Sarasota team,” Cassidy says in the statement. “The vision that Dave Santrella and Allen Power have laid out for the growth of our company is clear and is one that we are striving to achieve here in Tampa Bay and beyond.
