Contemporary Christian station coming to St. Louis


Minn-Iowa Christian Broadcasting’s “Joy FM” (KLJY-FM 99.1) plans to launch a new Christian station early next year. Sandi Brown, KJLY GM, tells St. Louis Today that the “station will be geared to teens and young adults, playing hip-hop, rap, pop and rock with a Christian message. The new station should debut in January or February.”

It air on 101.9 FM, but also simulcast on 94.1 and 97.7, frequencies now being used by Joy FM. The new station will broadcast 24 hours, commercial-free from Joy’s studios.

Mike Couchman is the PD and now is hiring other on-air personnel, said the story.
