    I fail to see how this is serving a community. I have no problem with HOW they program (“Christian”) but, rather, how they operate on a technical level. No studios, not staff, absolutely nothing local. Not a SINGLE EMPLOYEE.

    I don’t care what their mission is- their operating style is evil.

      The way they operate is much like radio in other parts of the world operates.

      Take a lot of Europe (France for example) There are the government owned networks. Then there are networks such as

      NRJ (CHR)
      Rouge FM (AC)
      Nostalgie (Classic Hits)
      RFM (AC)
      Skyrock (Rhythmic CHR-Urban)

      The above operate the way EMF operates. Stations across the country with almost all programming originating in Paris at the network studio. This is quite typical in many many countries.

      Here, it seems to only be used by Christian broadcasters (Since they’re non-commercial, they were allowed main studio waivers for decades) Main studios are no longer regulated the way they used to be. As a result, you can probably expect more of this in the future on commercial radio.
