    How long did it take you think up that brilliant comment? Just because it's not YOUR thing, doesn't mean it won't "bill" more than the formats you think are so great. I am not a fan either, but it's still a business and it's a legal and legit business.

    I mean Jeffrey is kind of right though most people in nyc aren’t interested in christian music and boring religious talk shows and gospel readings in my opinion.

    You both may be right, kidrauhl. I may have taken that out of context, as to people in Texas would fall for listening more than New Yorkers. Sorry, if that's the case, Jeffrey. If a mere one or two percent of the listening audience in New York City IS interested, then there are probably more listeners there than any of their other markets combined. And, that one or two percent may well send in more money than their next 20 stations. EMF does not just buy anything, anywhere. They have done their homework. David is great with numbers, but my guess is that even a minute fraction of potential listeners in NYC still out number listeners at a lot of the top stations we discuss on these boards.

    Name any genre of music. "Most" people are not interested in it. Music tastes are very fragmented based on age, culture, ethnicity, exposure and a variety of other things.

    K-Love, however, does not have daily talk shows and lengthy gospel readings, other than little "tidbits" inserted in the music based programming. It's a music station with extremely good formatics and a clean, contemporary presentation and lots of promotions and events that appeal to the target audience.

    There is nothing "syndicated" on K-love. They produce the programming in-house. The format originates in their own facilities at the headquarters in Rocklin and a studio in Indianapolis.

    They do major fund-raising drives twice a year and constantly encourage listeners to become regular donors.

    (First of all, I can't believe that this thread has gone to SEVEN pages already) - but secondly....it's amazing to me that this thread, originally started as a "WPLJ Farewell New York" thread, has basically turned into "well, let's come against K-Love" - shame, shame - when it comes to ANY radio station, I learned this a LONG, LONG time ago - if you DON'T like what's on the radio - TURN IT OFF OR CHANGE THE STATION!

    (full disclosure here: I DO listen to K-Love )

    Many of these militant "Christians" did exactly the opposite for years. They don't like something, so they threaten to boycott advertisers. They didn't simply turn off the radio. They tried to force changes.

    Many former Radio listeners have moved on due to banal content, Right Wing Crazy Talk, bland repetitive music, etc...

    What a great opinion. I don't get what's with this board but lately, as soon as something pro-Christian is discussed the thread derails to a bunch of people with hateful and baseless comments.
    To be quite honest, K-Love has never been my cup of tea - I prefer Radio U which I listen online, but having K-Love in NYC is a much welcome option among all the stations playing Katy Perry or Lady Gaga.
