On September 20th, 2010 KFMK SPIRIT 105.9 began transmitting as Austin’s new Christian music station. Programmed with the people of Austin in mind, after extensive music testing, the station hopes to be a beacon of light to the city of Austin.
General Manager, Tim McCoy, was the first employee appointed to the station and is busy getting station personnel and office space in place. In time, the station will have local DJs on the air welcoming Austin, and sharing local weather, news and traffic. If you are interested in joining the KFMK SPIRIT 105.9 staff, please visit http://www.crista.org/about/employment.htm to submit an application.
Along with putting a full staff in place, http://www.spirit1059.com/ will be launching as a full website as well. Finishing touches are just days away from completion. Listeners will be able to log onto the website for giveaways, information about the station, Christian news, sports news, a last played music list, and more.
The response from listeners and advertisers welcoming us to Austin has been overwhelming. Austin’s new Christian music station, KFMK SPIRIT 105.9 looks forward to becoming a staple in the community of Austin.
