Who We Are

Life 97.9 is a lifeline of music that uplifts you all day long, whether that’s in your marriage, at your job, or driving around with your kids in the car. We are a Christian radio station that promotes multiple ministries here in our area that do so much in our community. We’re also the concert connection for the most popular Christian artists and live shows in the region.

Life 97.9 is part of the Northwestern Media Network, a ministry of University of Northwestern in Saint Paul, MN. Today, Northwestern Media operates 16 listener-supported Christian radio stations throughout the Midwest.

Life 97.9 exists to lead people to Christ and nurture believers in their spiritual growth through Christ-centered media.
