January 11, 2013 - The Sale of 94.7FM 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.
“Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us...” Ephesians 3:20
Wasn’t Family Radio tied to that multiple scamster Harold Camping?
Yes, that is the one.
