Kankelfritz Joining Family Life Radio

Former KLOVE Morning Show Co-host Mike Kankelfritz is joining Family Life Radio (FLR). Mike will be FLR Program Director & Afternoon On-Air Host. 

“Mike’s professional and personal reputation testifies to his faithful love and care for God’s people,” says Sally Barton, FLR’s Chief Broadcast Engagement Officer. “We see God’s timing in the journey that brought Mike and his family to us, and we’re eager to see him use his extensive experience and creativity to share the message of hope in Christ.”

Kankelfritz is also excited about joining FLR. “The Family Life Radio team felt like family from the minute I walked in the door,” he says. “When I learned that the backbone of this network came from Dr. Randy Carlson’s vision of intentional living, I realized that his principles were already a part of my DNA. I am so excited to help more people connect to God in a deeper way through this amazing ministry of Family Life Radio.”

“Mike is joining our team at an exciting and strategic time as we work to build on a solid 50 year foundation of ministry,” says Evan Carlson, Executive Vice President. “We are excited to see how God will use Mike’s talents to further His ministry here at Family Life Radio.”

He, his wife Becky and their two children will be relocating to Tucson, AZ, next month, so he can work out of the FLR headquarters.  Mike is a graduate of John Brown University and has more than 28 years of experience in radio. After 7 years at K-LOVE he exited in November of last year. Prior to that, he hosted morning shows on KSBJ/Houston and KXOJ/Tulsa.
