Summer of Change for KFMG
Posted in Station News
Hello KFMG listeners. Here’s some information about what looks to be a “Summer of Change” here at KFMG.

Many of you remember our battle with Truth Broadcasting over their attempt to move from Boone to Johnston several years ago. Well, they didn’t give up, and were recently approved by the FCC to move from Boone to Huxley. That still brings them close enough to Des Moines, that KFMG will be required to change frequency or go off the air. Fortunately, we have already been approved by the FCC to change frequency from 99.1 to 98.9. It’s just the next frequency down the dial!! We’ll give you as much notice about the move as we can, but it will likely occur within the next month or so.

As if that wasn’t enough, you are probably aware that the Hotel Fort Des Moines has been sold. It WILL, finally, close for renovation sometime this summer or early fall. By that time KFMG will need to find a permanent new home, as we will not be coming back to the Fort Des Moines once renovation has been completed.

We are still looking for space which is suited for a radio station. We need about 1500 square feet of space, which would ideally be divided into four or five rooms—although we could live with three. We’d most like to have space in or very near to downtown. Best would be a 9-12 story building with space for studios and offices on an upper floor, and rooftop access for our antenna.

AND, because we are currently in donated facilities, the new space needs to be donated, as well. If you have any ideas, suggestions or leads, PLEASE contact us via the KFMG website at kfmg991.org, or give us a call on the office telephone at 244-4145.
