I know you’re busy, so I’ll keep this brief.  I’m Doug Smith, and I’m the new station manager here at Life 97.9. Communication is what we do here at the radio station, but there are some things we can’t put on the radio for one reason or another. That’s why I hope to communicate some of the “behind the scenes” information from time.

My wife Margie and I moved here from Waterloo, Iowa, where I managed the Northwestern Media station there, Life 101.9, for the past 19 years. We’re excited about this new challenge and are looking forward to getting involved in this amazing, growing community we’ve found here!

It’s a privilege to minister together with you here in the Fargo-Moorhead area. I’ve only been here for a few weeks, but already I’ve seen plenty of evidence that your support of this radio ministry has been a source of encouragement and hope for untold thousands of listeners over the years. It’s truly a team effort.

I believe God is going to continue to use your partnership with Life 97.9 to bring uplifting music and a message of hope to even more listeners here in the Red River Valley over the next several years. If you’re not currently on the Support Team here at the station, there will be several opportunities to join with us over the next few weeks. Pray for Life 97.9, that our ministry together will continue to introduce our friends and neighbors to Jesus, and to help us all grow in our faith.

Yours in Christ,

Doug Smith

Station Manager

    My wife and I have been listening to Life 97 for the last couple of years, first from the repeater in Fergus Falls, MN and also with web based applications on our iPod, iPad and Mac. Your ministry goes much farther than the Fargo/Moorhead area. We live east of Fergus Falls, MN near the town of Underwood, MN on Norway Lake. We really appreciate you music ministry. We pray that you will continue to do God’s Work for a long time. Shalom, Bill & Mary Ann
