First Broadcast in 1959

Family Radio, established in 1958 under its official name: Family Stations Inc., aired its first broadcast on February 4, 1959, over radio station KEAR FM in San Francisco CA. Since then, God has enabled the ministry to build a number of powerful AM and FM stations throughout the United States and various places around the world, a shortwave facility, and several smaller educational facilities and translators. Family Radio also shares programming with local TV Stations in San Francisco, CA (channel 28) and Newark, NJ (channel 66). Today, with the use of modern technology, God has opened the door to broadcast the Gospel via Internet around the world.
