Cross Rhythms in terrestrial broadcast
UNITED CHRISTIAN BROADCASTERS have asked the Cross Rhythms ministry to run their new Long Wave terrestrial radio station due to be launched in the UK in approximately a year's time. The station, to be called UCB Cross Rhythms, will feature 24 hours a day contemporary Christian music. The right to broadcast came about recently when UCB were granted two international frequencies by the Russian government - the last of the propaganda frequencies created before the fall of communism in Russia.
UCB plan to use their other frequency, on Medium Wave, to broadcast programming with an adult emphasis, similar to the existing UCB programmes currently being broadcast via satellite on the Astra satellite Sky Sports channel. UCB will be raising the finance for their new terrestrial initiative and are currently planning the building of two major transmitters to cover the whole of Europe.
Chris Cole, who will be the Cross Rhythms Station's Director, said,
"This is a thrilling and much prayed for extension of the Cross
Rhythms ministry. We are still committed to taking Christian
programming into secular outlets but we have recognised for some time
the huge need in the UK for a station broadcasting the kind of
material epitomised by the Cross Rhythms Experience programmes. UCB
have been faithful pioneers of Christian broadcasting in Europe and
have now demonstrated tremendous graciousness, generosity and vision
by bringing the Cross Rhythms ministry in with them to pioneer a
station with a huge potential to impact the youth of this nation."
