Visiting your sister
By: Tim Calcara
Not sure where the term “Sister station” got it’s start but as you probably know, the term refers to radio stations of common ownership. Two or more stations owned by the same parent company, are sometimes called “Sister stations.” (You’re probably wondering where this is going.)
A few weeks ago, our advancement team took a mini-road trip to Des Moines and Kansas City, partially to visit the studios of Life 88.5 in KC and Life 107.1 in Des Moines. It occurred to me as I thought about this trip that this would be a good time of year to plug our Life Radio Affiliates as you may be planning travel itineraries for the summer.
Northwestern Media stations include:
- Life 98.5 – Minneapolis/St. Paul
- Life 96.5 – Sioux Falls
- Life 97.5 – Fargo
- Life 102.5 – Madison, WI
- Life 107.1 – Des Moines
- Life 88.5 – Kansas City
- Life 101.9 – Waterloo/Cedar Rapids
Like Life 101.9, all of these stations feature Adult Contemporary Christian Music from today’s most popular artists as well as local radio personalities, weather and information.
Listening options when traveling? Here are two:
- Visit one of our “sisters” on the radio. The musical sounds will be familiar and the themes of love/hope/family should make you feel right at home. Check out the links above to learn more.
- Take Life 101.9 with you when go as you listen online. Just download the free Life 101.9 app available at Google Play and the App Store.
Stay safe and have fun when traveling. And thanks for taking uplifting music with you when you go.
Something to think about.
