Radio of Hope Begins Broadcast

A new radio station KROH 91.1 FM–Port Townsend is officially on the air in northwestern Washington.

Radio of Hope began broadcasting over the airwaves in mid-August after launching an online broadcast in September 2010.

"KROH is now on the air and we are getting good reports from people all around western Washington," says Glenn Gately, radio station visionary. "People are hearing us as far north as Bellingham (Wash.) and as far south as Seattle (Wash.)."

"It is the purpose of KROH to improve life for the listener in the here and now as we await our Lord's coming," says Joe Mann, KROH general manager. "We do this by airing programs that help us all to live healthier and happier lives, to improve our marriages, be better parents, better neighbors and better citizens."

The vision for a radio station in Port Townsend began as a grassroots effort in 2007. The station continues to grow with expanded services including the possibility of broadcasting in Russian and Spanish.

"We are on the air, but the work is by no means finished," Gately says. "We are now working on getting our emergency equipment set up at the studio and tower site."
