GATEWAY CREATIVE BROADCASTING Christian KLJY (JOY FM)/ST. LOUIS is back to 100% after enduring a transmitter fire Saturday 11/10. The fire happened just as the station was set to begin an important fund raising campaign.
ALL ACCESS spoke with PD/GREG CASSIDY who explained, "We had to switch to a back up tower site, putting us at about 10% for the weekend. The day before the actual on-air fundraiser, we were able to go back on the main tower at close to 50% power. Amazingly, throughout each hour and day of the event the JOY-FM community stayed on track to maintain the goals. It actually ended about 5:26 on Thursday, hitting the $1.5 million payment goal ... an hour and a half before the 'scheduled' end!"
They are now back to 100% power on the main tower site, without incident. Stay in touch with them at http://joyfmonline.org.
