Crista Ministries will officially take over 105.9 KFMK Austin, TX on Monday, September 20. At that time the AC/CCM hybrid “105.9 The River” will flip to all out Contemporary Christan “Spirit 105.9“. Crista acquired KFMK from Clear Channel’s Aloha Stations Trust in June for $6.25 Million. Prior to the sale, Clear Channel swapped the programming of Rhythmic CHR “105.9 The Beat” and what was then “102.3 The River” in order to keep the Beat format on the stronger signal that was remaining in its portfolio.
