88.3 The Wind Launches New Frequency in Joplin

88.3 The Wind, a non-profit contemporary Christian station in Springfield, Missouri, has launched a new frequency, 89.5 FM. The new frequency will broadcast as far west as extreme southeast Kansas, reaching the following cities: Joplin, Lamar, Carthage, Neosho, Pierce City and Stockton. While the frequency is new, the content will feature the same radio personalities, music and theme as 88.3-FM in Springfield.
88.3 The Wind’s mission is to bring Hope and Encouragement to its listeners 7 days a week and the same mission will be replicated for all frequencies. Chalmer Harper, Station Manager says “We are overjoyed, humbled, and excited by what God has done with this expansion of the ministry of 88.3 The Wind. We are looking forward to serving these communities with not only our radio signal, but our hands and feet.”

The staff at 88.3 The Wind also works alongside the community to facilitate multiple outreaches from blanket drives to food drives, collecting thousands of needed items with the purpose of showing Christ’s love.
88.3 The Wind is owned and operated by the Radio Training Network (RTN). 89.5-FM is the sixth signal in the 88.3 The Wind family, joining translators at 94.1/Branson, MO; 100.9/Bolivar, MO; 103.3/Mansfield, MO; and 102.1/Mountain Grove, MO. RTN purchased 89.5 KCKJ in August from the Lake Area Educational Broadcasting Foundation.

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
