Happy 45th Birthday, WPCS
On June 21, 1971, WPCS began broadcasting along the Upper Gulf Coast, reaching listeners 17 hours a day at 89.3 FM. The station of origin for the Rejoice Broadcast Network, WPCS started with a small studio in an empty classroom in the corner of Pensacola Christian School. This summer, we’re celebrating 45 years of radio ministry! Here’s a timeline of our history:
1985 WPCS expands broadcast to 24 hours a day.
1987 The frequency changes to 89.5 FM with the move to a new 1,300 ft. tower in Elsenor, Alabama.
1988 The station moves to Pensacola Christian College campus in the studios of the new Communicative Arts Center.
1996 Rejoice Broadcast Network begins with its first stations.
1997 Music and Programming begins streaming on the Internet at Rejoice.org.
2010 KPCS, a 45,000-watt full-power station in Princeton, MN, begins broadcasting in the greater Minneapolis/St. Paul area.
Through these 45 years, God has blessed this ministry with many friends who have become our share partners. We appreciate each one of you! During this month of celebration, it would be exciting to find out when you began listening to Rejoice Radio and how it has been a blessing to you. When you write, consider including a special birthday gift to help keep Rejoice Radio on the air for another great year of music and programs.
