December 01, 2007 | Kathy Marson

Colville Valley Family Radio celebrated the completion of their new studio with an open house on a cold, foggy Thursday, Oct. 18.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony included Ken LeBrun, Kettle Falls Church pastor; Dan Knapp, Colville Church pastor; Mark Freiberger, Colville city engineer; and Dick Nichols, Colville mayor. Nichols said, "This station is an example of good people doing good things."

The open house featured several hours of local on-air programming, including interviews with Freiberger, Knapp, Kathy Marson, Upper Columbia Media Association representative, and many others. This project came to fruition with the support of both the Kettle Falls and the Colville churches. In addition to the interviews, several musical selections helped mark the day. Bob Sorlien, station program manager, and church member Cindi Coffen hosted the live programming with assistance from Bob Coffen and Tony Phillips, station engineers.

According to Freiberger, Colville Valley Family Radio KEIT-LP FM 100.7 has been broadcasting family-oriented Christian music and talk radio since Sept. 10, 2005. The recording studio facility was recently completed, and it provides housing for the equipment and the ability to do local recording. Colville Valley Family Radio is locally owned and broadcasts 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Their programming comes primarily from Life Talk Radio.
