Immaculate Heart Radio is in the process of acquiring central California radio station, KMPH AM 840. Non-commercial Catholic programming has been airing on the station since July 30; the final purchase is set to record this September.
The 5,000 watt facility broadens Immaculate Heart Radio’s presence along the central corridor, filling the gap between Modesto and Madera. The station reaches more than 700,000 new people during the day and more than 2 million nighttime listeners. Doug Sherman, president and founder of Immaculate Heart Radio said:
“This station is remarkable. Its signal allows us to reach an enormous audience of new listeners. We’ve heard from many people in the Central Valley over the years who have wanted to hear our programming, but didn’t live close enough to one of our stations. Now we can reach them.”
The addition of KMPH AM 840 further completes an effort to provide an umbrella of Catholic programming along the coast and inland in California. Each new station is part of IHR’s commitment to bring a message of faith, hope and love to enrich the lives of listeners.
