On the heels of its purchase from CLEAR CHANNEl holding entity ALOHA TRUST, CRISTA BROADCASTING will re-launch KFMK/AUSTIN as SPIRIT 105.9 when its new Christian Contemporary format begins on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 20th. The transition has just received final confirmation from the FCC.
"We are pleased to have received FCC approval, and now we are days away from beginning a new era for CRISTA BROADCASTING," VP/GM STAN MAK said. "SPIRIT 105.9 is here because of the overwhelming support for this format that we heard time and time again in our conversations with AUSTIN listeners. SPIRIT 105.9 is going to provide uplifting music and message to the great people of AUSTIN."
SPIRIT 105.9 GM TIM MCCOY said, "We are excited to have developed a logo that captures the wonderful energy of our station. The logo is distinctly AUSTIN, as our station will be. We have done extensive research to ensure we are programming the type of local station that ‘Austinites’ have been asking for."
