On November 26th, we completed our filings with the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) to trade the translator located on Badger Mountain south of Richland with a permit to build one serving Yakima from near Wapato.  This vital step took a bit longer than we anticipated, but it required all parties to be satisfied with the terms of the trade agreement, and we are thankful that this step is now complete.

We are expecting approval of the trade by early January.  This approval clears the way for us to construct the translator and be on the air by mid-January.  This is close to the “must complete” deadline of mid-February, so we ask for your prayers for all to go well and that we will be broadcasting Christian Family Radio to the Yakima area and upper Yakima Valley well ahead of the deadline.

Again, we are thankful for the many that gave sacrificially for this project, and look forward to expanding the outreach of Christian Family Radio to the glory of our Lord!

As we’ve been doing for the past couple of years, Christian Family Radio is now broadcasting all-Christmas music through December 26th.  This music is all Christ-honoring and gives a wonderful background to your daily life, whether at home, work or running errands in the car.

We’ve extended the all-Christmas time to two weeks based on listener comments, which have been overwhelmingly positive.

From all of us here at Christian Family Radio, we extend our wishes and prayers to you and your family for a wonderful Christmas and God’s blessing in 2015. 2014 has been a good year for this ministry and we are excited that we will soon be reaching another 200,000 potential listeners through the power upgrade of KOLU and the new Yakima translator.  Read more about these on our coverage upgrade page.

After using our former national news service for 25 years, Christian Family Radio has  transitioned to SRN News.  This new service provides us with more flexibility to vary our newscasts between in-depth and summaries, and also to “nudge” the schedule just a bit to accommodate changes in lengths of other programming.

We worked hard with our former news service to address ongoing problems with their sound, where it would “break up” with odd noises.  This was caused at their end, and there was nothing we could do about it.  In addition, some newscasts were completely “blank” with nothing being aired during these segments.  This forced us to look elsewhere and we were pleased that SRN News offered not only a replacement, but additional features that will enable us to “fine tune” for a good balance of public affairs, teaching, preaching and music programming that we strive to achieve here at Christian Family Radio.

Our national newscast continues to air at the top of the hour, but can vary slightly based on the lengths of programs leading up to the news, giving us much smoother “transitions”.  We’ve set up a basic schedule that rotates news content in 3 hour segments, subject to special programming:

  • On the “3s”, that is, 3am, 6am, 9am and so on, a full newscast is broadcast featuring the latest news, an in depth segment of interest to Christians, and another general in-depth segment
  • The next hour, we shorten the newscast to include the latest news and the in-depth Christian interest segment
  • The 3rd hour, we just air the latest news

Also, on scheduled times where we only have a minute available, we’ll be airing “Headline Updates” to keep you informed.

We are pleased with this improvement to our programming and appreciate your prayers and comments!
