Pulse FM Expands South Bend Reach

LeSEA Broadcasting Corporation is expanding their WHPZ/South Bend (PULSE-FM) radio formats, heard on 96.9 FM and 92.1 FM, to now include WHME/South Bend 103.1 FM, with solid coverage of South Bend and Mishawaka.

In conjunction with this change Pulse-FM is upgrading all three signals to full HD radio, with the same family oriented format. Pulse-FM air personalities strive every day to inspire and encourage listeners, plus the station regularly features contests with concert tickets, cash prizes and more.

Drew Sumrall, CEO of LeSEA Broadcasting said, “LeSEA has owned and operated WHME 103.1 since 1968. We are excited to expand PULSE-FM with this change, and we believe it fits perfectly into our strategy to reach Michiana with family-friendly media.”

LeSEA is a multifaceted organization operating radio and television stations, notably FETV (Family Entertainment Television), which is available in 49 million households across the country. LeSEA also operates shortwave radio facilities, a travel agency with a focus on tours to Israel, and a 24-hour call center. LeSEA was founded by Dr. Lester Sumrall, an evangelistic pioneer who had a passion for multimedia.


The WHME Christian talk and teaching programming is now available on HD.2 channels (92.1, 96.9, 103.1) and whmefm.com.
