Vision Network has launched another three Christian relay stations in Western Australia, taking its total to 182 across the country.
The three new stations have all paid for by the network’s successful June ‘Dream With Us’ Visionathon.
Almost 750 people pledged more than $280 000 in donations for towns where the radio network had licences but were not yet on air. On average, it costs about $5000 to bring a relay station on air, including the licence, equipment, installation, program delivery for the first year and associated costs.
Other newly sponsored relay stations are set to come on air in coming months.
Cervantes resident, Rhonda Scully, says: “It’s nice to have an alternative radio, which has Christian content.”
