Blue Ridge Broadcasting purchases 88.9 FM in Clemson, South Carolina

ASHEVILLE, N.C., April 15, 2021 – Blue Ridge Broadcasting (BRB), a listener-supported ministry of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, has purchased station W205CU (88.9 FM) in Clemson, South Carolina, from Georgia-Carolina Radiocasting, Inc. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved the purchase on March 15.    

This addition to BRB will provide a much-improved signal featuring the music and Bible teaching of The Light FM to listeners in Pickens, Oconee and portions of Anderson County, South Carolina. Pending FCC approval, Georgia-Carolina will also donate WSNW 1150 AM in Seneca, South Carolina, to BRB.

“The Light FM is now free from the obstructions of mountainous terrain to serve this portion of the Upstate with Christ-centered music and teaching,” said Jim Kirkland, executive director of BRB. “The region from Clemson and Pendleton up to Walhalla and over to Pickens can now turn to 88.9 FM to find The Light FM.”

BRB was founded by Billy Graham and his wife, Ruth, in 1962 to serve their home region with Christian radio. The Light FM’s operations are based in Asheville, on the grounds of the Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove.
