New low-power radio stations on air
Rockford listeners can now enjoy two new local radio stations that are serving the city. WTPB 99.3 FM is owned and operated by Third Presbyterian Church in Rockford. The station broadcasts with 46 watts from a transmitter and antenna at Rockford College. The station features easy-listening music, and periodic church announcements by pastor Dr. Murray Hanson. WTPB broadcast Christmas music all during the recent holidays. The stations format also includes two national religious programs and Musical Memories hosted by John Russell. Local programming is planned for a later date.
WHJG, 93.3 FM, operates with 100 watts and is owned by the Pelley Road Christian Fellowship. This station has a religious format. Both stations are licensed under new FCC rules that allow for the operation of low-power stations that offer more localized and alternative programming than offered by area commercial broadcasters.
