October 23, 2013 - WFME-TV programming to be discontinued
With a heavy heart we inform you today that beginning November 1st, 2013, WFME-TV will permanently discontinue programming throughout all of our broadcast channels in the northern New Jersey and New York City areas.
Although the loss of our TV programming comes as sad news, there is still a way to receive Family Radio programming on your television. If you’ve been able to watch our over-the-air broadcast on channel 66 in northern New Jersey and New York City, then you know the audio broadcast of WFME-FM was available to you on channel 66.2. We are happy to say that this feature will remain unchanged. This will be a special benefit to those of you who cannot receive WFME 106.3 FM on the radio, but are able to receive WFME-TV on channel 66.
By God’s grace, WFME-TV has broadcast the ‘Good News’ for over 15 years with a variety of programs that we hope have been a blessing to you. We are sincerely grateful to you, our viewers, for sustaining us throughout the years with your prayers and financial gifts. Please continue to pray for us, and for the ministry of Family Radio, that we may be faithful in proclaiming the Gospel to the world.
Thank you, and may the Lord richly bless you!
February 11, 2013 - WFME on 106.3 FM
Family Radio can now be heard at 106.3 FM from Mt. Kisco, New York! It's main, or local, coverage is a radius of about 30 miles from the Mt. Kisco area, reaching well into spots such as White Plains and New City, NY, with fairly good distant coverage -- as far as Danbury and Stamford, CT, to the East; and Yonkers, NY, to the south. FM is not affected to any high degree by weather nor atmospherics; and so, if you are able to tune us in at 106.3, the reception should be very consistent.
In addition to this new signal on 106.3 FM, we are working diligently to secure a replacement AM station powerful enough to cover the loss, or, make up for the loss of WFME 94.7 FM, with Family Radio again being heard in the Metropolitan New York area. We also realize that the loss of this once-powerful beacon has hit our listeners living in, and around, New York / Northern New Jersey areas, very hard; but we trust that God knows this, and will provide -- in His time. In the meanwhile, please keep praying for us at Family Radio. We will keep you informed as we get more definitive news.
Thank you for your continued support of Family Radio -- and we are very thankful to God for His great mercy on us!
January 11, 2013 - The Sale of 94.7 FM WFME
Today, rumors abound surrounding Family Radio and the sale of our most powerful station, WFME FM. The decision to sell WFME-FM was very painful and difficult. However, God provided no other option. Either we sell WFME or go off the air completely. By restructuring our operations, Family Radio will be strengthened and better able to provide our listeners with what we all long for -- the comfort of God's Word and the peace that faithful music can bring.
In the meantime, we are working intently to find a suitable replacement -- so if God permits, we will again be heard throughout the great city of New York. We rejoice, knowing God is faithful and can provide for this need; so please pray for God's wisdom and guidance as we seek out a possible AM replacement for this important station. The believers in this great country, as well as those around the world, desperately need the hope that only God's Word can give; so, we take seriously our duty to seek to provide Family Radio's Gospel programming for as many communities as God will allow.
