EMF BROADCASTING launched its 200th radio station in SCRANTON, PA this month, making EMF the largest Contemporary Christian music broadcaster in the world. The combined listening audience of EMF’s Christian AC K-LOVE and Christian CHR AIR-1 radio networks now tops 4.1 million listeners each week, according to ARBITRON, with another 225,000 weekly online streaming listeners (as reported by WEBMETRICS). In addition to the 200 radio stations, K-LOVE and AIR-1 also operate a group of 180 FM transmitters in 44 states.
“The rapid growth of the network is the direct result of a dedicated staff and listener support base, who share our vision to provide ‘positive and encouraging’ radio programming across AMERICA,” says EMF Pres. DICK JENKINS.
EMF began its expansion 18 years ago with one radio station in SANTA ROSA, CA and is now in such markets as CHICAGO, DENVER, PORTLAND, SAN DIEGO, MEMPHIS, PHOENIX and OKLAHOMA CITY. For more information on EMF, visit www.emfbroadcasting.com.
