Wednesday, January 13, 2016 — Cox Media Group (CMG) has brought back a well-established radio brand to Tulsa with the launch of Spirit 105.7, “Today’s Christian Music.”
The “Spirit” brand was moved from over-the-air to Cox Cable Channel 1982 in 2009, when CMG’s news/talk station KRMG took over the 102.3 dial position to add an FM broadcast to its heritage AM signal. Since then, local management has received consistent requests to bring back the Contemporary Christian station to an over-the-air signal.
Steve Hunter, CMG’s Director of Operations, said, “We conducted an audience poll and the response to bring Spirit back was amazing. We are thrilled to bring this great radio station back to Tulsa.”
Spirit 105.7 FM will be locally programmed and available on 105.7 FM, Cox Cable channel 1982 and online at Spirit 1057.com
The station will launch with at least 55 minutes of music every hour and will provide music that is positive and uplifting to serve local families that want a radio station that is safe to listen to with their kids.
