The long anticipated launch of WAY MEDIA INC Christian WAY-FM (89.9)/BIRMINGHAM is a reality. “This has been a long time coming” says WAY MEDIA INC. PRES/BOB AUGSBURG. “For nine years WAY-FM has been serving the HUNTSVILLE area. That station was a success almost immediately. We have had so many requests to bring WAY-FM to BIRMINGHAM and now we have finally been able to make it happen.”
The BIRMINGHAM expansion is being led by WAY-FM HUNTSVILLE GM/THOM EWING who noted, “It’s been a request, a dream and a prayer of many to hear BIRMINGHAM'S own WAY-FM. We’re very excited to provide the most popular contemporary Christian music along with real and relevant DJs like WALLY and unique outreaches to the most populous city in AL.”
This makes four outlets for WAY-FM in the state. The first was WAY-FM HUNTSVILLE which signed on in 2003, followed by two WAY-FM translators in MONTGOMERY. In 2010, WAY-FM launched a full power station in NE AL serving GADSDEN and ANNISTON. The new BIRMINGHAM signal serves a potential audience of approximately 700,000 people.
