Northwestern Media

Northwestern Media exists to lead people to Christ and nurture believers in their spiritual growth through Christ-centered media—a mission that started with our first radio station in 1949. Today Northwestern Media owns and operates 16 stations in 10 markets in seven different states. Our radio signals reach more than 1 million listeners each week across the Midwest and thousands more through live Internet streaming.

Program formats

  • LIFE (primarily FM) stations feature contemporary Christian music, engaging on-air talent and a focus on involving and serving the communities they reach.
  • FAITH (primarily AM) stations offer a blend of preaching, teaching, and compelling conversation to help connect faith to life.

We love to hear from you

Visit your favorite station often to check on program schedules, community events and concerts. When you are encouraged by something that you hear on the radio, please e-mail, call or write your station to let us know about it—we are blessed to know that God is working through our media ministry.
