UNIV. OF NORTHWESTERN Talk/Teaching KTIS-A (Faith Radio 900)/MINNEAPOLIS is now being heard on EDUCATIONAL MEDIA FOUNDATION’s (EMF) MINNEAPOLIS translator at 90.7.
Usage of the 99-watt translator, located on the WELLS FARGO building in downtown MINNEAPOLIS, is due to the graciousness and generosity of EMF leadership. The translator had been previously used to air the K-LOVE signal.
FAITH RADIO SVP/Media PAUL VIRTS commented, "We at FAITH RADIO deeply appreciate the kindness of the EMF board and trustees! This 99-watt translator will have a potential audience of 1.5 million people and give FAITH RADIO listeners an opportunity to listen with an FM quality signal in the TWIN CITIES 24 hours a day, seven days a week."
Currently, KTIS-A 900 is licensed by the FCC for 50,000 watts during the daylight hours, but only 500 watts at night. The nighttime pattern has limited reach across the Metro area, particularly in the MINNEAPOLIS suburbs.
