Communication

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

A problem for today's listeners to radio, is they are forgotten by the owners of radio. Managers and owners only care about filling their pockets with money instead of bringing quality programming to their audience. Here at our station, we strive to bring the best quality of music and programming that honors Christ, and reaches the community. We believe radio should be for the people!

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We are striving to reach the Houston area with Christian Country music that touches people in a wonderful way. In addition, we want to provide a platform for local and national pastors, charities, and business's to share what they can provide to the community.

First and foremost, we honor God in everything we do, by being good stewards of what he has provided us.

Next we take inspirational music and programming and air them on 90.5 FM. The signal goes out to ten's of thousands who listen by their radio's and many more who listen on mobile devices.

Finally, those who believe in what we're doing, often contribute their time, talents and resources to help out our ministry. Several business's in our area have even joined with us in partnership.

Our capabilities can be met by the equipment we use for broadcasting. All of which is paid in full by donors and business sponsors.

After the necessary equipment is bought, its managed by trained personnel who master in the art of music, programming, and technology.

Finally, our staff work constantly to innovate new ways, and build upon existing ones for reaching people with a message of hope and encouragement.

We have increased our signal size, curtsy of the FCC, and we continue to ask for more power. With the addition of more power, our coverage area more people are able to hear our music ministry, increase our listeners and grow our community involvement.
