Chicago, IL (January 10, 2008) — Moody Radio began the New Year with a new station. On Tuesday, December 27, 2007, WRNF in Selma, Alabama signed on for the very first time. The station operates at 89.5 FM with 6,000 watts.
WRNF is significant to Moody Radio for many reasons, including growing Moody’s presence in Alabama by joining already existing stations WMBV 91.9 FM, WMBU, 89.1 and WMFT 88.9. Additionally, WRNF is named in honor of Robert Neff, former Vice President of Broadcasting at Moody Bible Institute. Bob was a pioneer in the development of Moody’s satellite network and the globalization of Christian radio. He had a passion for breaking barriers and bridging gaps created by race, nationality and geography. It is Moody’s hope that this station will do the same.
Moody Radio vice president Wayne Pederson said: “This is an appropriate way to honor the legacy of Bob Neff…and to advance a ministry of reconciliation through the work of our Moody Radio South stations.”
