WE’RE HERE TO BE A LIGHT TO THE LOST, AND A SPIRITUAL ENCOURAGEMENT TO THE BELIEVERS.
Community Radio, Inc. was incorporated in 1978, with the purpose of building a Christian radio station in Pasadena for the Houston area.
In 1979, the Lord called the pastor of Community Church in Pasadena, TX, Bob Vaughn, to start a radio station. The station was licensed, built and signed On-Air in February ’81, as 89.3 KFTG.
A few months down the road, it changed genre’s from Contemporary to Southern Gospel. KJIC then operated at 118 watts at 89.3 FM. In ’87 KSBJ and KJIC swapped frequencies. KJIC was now at 88.1 FM with 440 watts.
In ’91, Community Radio built another station. This new station was licensed to Santa Fe, and operated at 90.5 FM with 5,000 watts.
In ‘93, our increase was to 6,000 watts.
In ‘03, Community Radio sold the Pasadena station, to raise funds to build our on tower. We began broadcasting on our new tower in ‘03 with 7,700 watts.
In ‘09, KJIC upgraded to 36,000 watts directional.
