KTIS/Minneapolis/St. Paul partnered with Operation Christmas Child last Year for the Shoebox Showdown. A blustery Minnesota November day saw KTIS Morning Show host Keith Stevens compete with his Afternoon counterpart Andy Youso as “Team Keith” and “Team Andy” visited drop-off locations across the Twin Cities. KTIS listeners responded in a big way with thousands of Shoeboxes filled with gifts and essentials that Operation Christmas Child would distribute to children around the world.
Matt Deane KTIS Program Director, said “Operation Christmas Child is an amazing organization that works incredibly hard to share the love of Jesus with children around the world. What a privilege to watch 98.5 KTIS listeners enthusiastically join in this important work.”
98.5 KTIS is a part of the Northwestern Media network of University of Northwestern – St. Paul. Northwestern Media operates 23 stations in 14 markets across 10 states. Their radio signals reach more than 1.25 million listeners each week.
