Northwestern College Acquires KLJC In Kansas City
Northwestern College in St. Paul, Minnesota, and Calvary Bible College in Kansas City, Missouri, have entered into a purchase agreement for Northwestern to acquire KLJC-FM from Calvary. KLJC is a 100,000-watt non-commercial station that has had a Christian format since it signed on in 1970. Brokered by Greg Guy of Patrick Communications, the transaction requires FCC approval which is expected later this spring.
Dr. Clark, President of Calvary Bible College, states: “Music and biblical teaching have been the trademark of KLJC, which has ministered to the Kansas City metropolitan area for 43 years. Over the years, the college has also trained more than 200 men and women, who are in Christian radio today, through a major degree program in Christian Broadcasting. Our desire is to see that same commitment for Christian radio to continue in the future. We feel confident that Northwestern College will serve as the right vehicle to proclaim the good news to Kansas City in message and song for years ahead.”
“Our Northwestern Media ministry exists to lead people to Christ and nurture believers in their spiritual growth,” says Northwestern President Alan S. Cureton. “The model of ‘high touch’ listener and community engagement has effectively served our listeners in five states, and the addition of Kansas and Missouri to our roster is a responsibility and a privilege.”
