We began negotiating for air time on both XM Radio and Sirius Satellite Radio before they launched their first satellites. Unfortunately, satellite radio does not appear to be a viable option for K-LOVE at this time.
K-LOVE has bumper stickers available for our radio and online listeners. Order online, or if you need a large quantity, contact your regional manager. Window clings and decals aren't available at this time, but our stickers are usually easily removed.
Each radio station is required by the Federal Communications Commission to have a 4-letter call sign, such as KLVP or KRDG, etc. Radio stations west of the Mississippi River start with the letter "K" and those east of the river start with "W". K-LOVE is a network of contemporary Christian stations and each affiliate in our network has their own official call sign. However, we felt the network as a whole needed one identification. K-LOVE was chosen because the "K" indicates we are a radio network that originated west of the Mississippi River. The "LOVE" portion of our name indicates we are broadcasting a message of God's love and forgiveness for all.

It sounds like you've heard an announcement developed by our Underwriting team. Yes, there is a separate way to let our tens of thousands of radio listeners know about your business. It's the equivalent of business underwriting on public radio and television. It calls for investment levels similar to local radio advertising. The benefit of this is called the "halo effect" because the audience hears your message in the K-LOVE Positive and Encouraging environment. Without actually saying it, it says you believe in them. There is also an opportunity for online exposure through ads on klove.com and other online outlets. You can contact this team by calling 1-800-525-5683.

We do keep track of incoming gifts by zip-code so we can credit your support to your local community. When an area reaches 100% funding, many donors give to help other areas. While we track by local area, we are always grateful for 100% funding overall.
K-LOVE has teamed up with the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC), a giving option for military and federal employees. K-LOVE’s giving code is: 10111. We really appreciate your consideration in making K-LOVE your charity of choice!
If an area was at 100% last fund drive, it will often lose 30 to 40% of its financial support due to donors relocating to another area, loss of employment, catastrophic financial events and unfulfilled donations.
The goal you hear on the air is the difference or “replacement” percentage to get back to 100% funding.

Even though we would love to have a signal in every city in America, several factors determine whether we are able to put a signal in a particular area. The main factor is the availability of frequencies. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates all broadcast frequencies in the United States. Currently, most markets do not have any frequencies available. One option we have is to buy an existing high-powered station, but most of these stations sell for millions of dollars, a price generally out of K-LOVE's reach.
Building low-powered stations (called translators, because they "translate" from one frequency to another) is also an option. Though translators do not cover as large an area as a full-power station, they still provide usable service. Unfortunately, the FCC has not accepted new translator applications for a number of years. In March 2003, the FCC opened a opportunity for new translator applications. We filed close to 900 applications and were granted over 250. Those translators have been built, but the FCC is not currently accepting applications for new ones.
Because full-power stations take priority over translators, if an existing translator causes interference with another full-power station (even a new station), the translator must be removed.
Even with permission from the FCC, a station or translator can still take years to build. FCC and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations, availability of land and tower space, local zoning laws, EPA restrictions and even weather can affect the timetable of building a signal or make it impossible to build.
We love to meet our listeners! We give tours at our headquarters located in Rocklin, CA. Please call our receptionists at (800) 525-LOVE to schedule a visit. We are not able to provide tours in our regional offices or remote studios, however.
K-LOVE hosts on-air and online contests all year long! Call (800) 900-1300 when prompted for on-air contests. It is often tough to get through with so many excited listeners dialing, but there is always a winner so please don’t give up! Find a list of all national and regional contests on our contest page. Contest rules are subject to change with each promotion, but for general guidelines, check our contest rules. Most contests are open to all U.S. residents, but prizes involving travel are restricted to those over age 18.
Well, we've got options!
K-LOVE’s CONCERTS page is a great place to start. We also have ARTISTS pages where you can find more information and links to artists pages.
Many news stories we report on the air are posted online on our news page, which includes a search feature. If you don't find a story you heard, contact us and we'll try to track it down for you. When you do use our news links, please be advised these sites are external links and not supported by K-LOVE.
K-LOVE is an evangelistic ministry and is not associated with any political party. As a station, we do not provide endorsements for issues or candidates. Please keep in mind that K-LOVE is a worldwide ministry and we feel that to become involved in politics would distract from our calling. There are wonderful Christian ministries that already provide these resources for Christians. Our goal is to present the news without personal opinions or commentaries, giving equal time to both sides of any issue. Due to time limitations, these are often rotated and may not be heard in the same update.
Our news material comes from a number of sources, including phone leads and press releases. Our news anchors do their own investigative reporting and our news department checks about 15 secular and religious news websites daily for stories we feel would be of interest to our listeners. Three of the best sites for news with a Christian focus are http://www.charismanews.com/, http://www.religiontoday.com/ and http://www.christianitytoday.com/. We also rely on you for news tips! Thank you for your assistance!
Closer Look segments are produced by K-LOVE and may be downloaded online. At this time transcripts are not available.
K-LOVE provides links to those ministries who have spots on the air. K-LOVE does not have transcripts here at the station but you may be able to request or read these on the individual sites of our ministry partners.
If you'd like to submit a prayer request, one of our full-time pastors will receive it. Our staff meets daily to pray for our listeners' needs.
Our pastoral staff is available to talk and pray with our listeners. They can be reached at (800) 525-LOVE. We don't offer ongoing counseling, but we can refer you to a resource in your area.
K-LOVE is not associated with a church. We are a Christian ministry that is supported by listeners representing many church backgrounds. We do not require donors to provide this information so statistics aren't available. To find out more about what we believe, review our Statement of Faith. If you have any questions, please contact us.
We'd love to help! Please call our pastors at (800) 525-LOVE. Once our pastor has a chance to become better acquainted with you and the type of church you are looking for, they will provide suggestions.
Finding a song you heard on K-LOVE is easy! Search for the song on our music page by typing in some of the lyrics. Or you can check our recent songs section where the last 20 songs we played are listed. You can also email or call us at (800) 525-LOVE. We are happy to help you track down the song. Let us know the time you heard the song, which time zone you are in and any lyrics or other description of the song you can remember.
K-LOVE's format is "Contemporary Christian Music." We generally focus on music that is culturally relevant and appeals to the current generation of people searching for Jesus. Typically, this music is similar to the style of music played in the secular market but whose lyrics focus on worshipping Jesus and bringing people to Christ.
Many listeners request special programming hours. However, logistically in a network of our size, it isn't possible to find a time that works well for everyone.
Our artist pages provide links directly to artists’ websites.
We're excited that so many of our listeners are involved in making great Christian music. If your music fits our guidelines, feel free to submit a song by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If K-LOVE doesn't seem like the right fit, we recommend contacting the Gospel Music Association (GMA). They have great advice for new artists and also host an annual festival "Music in the Rockies" - a talent search and contest. A great starting point!
