Hope Media Group (HMG) has announced plans to purchase Miami radio station 90.9 WLFE in Calvary Chapel of Kendall, FL., with plans for it to serve as the South Florida outlet of “Vida Unida”, HMG’s Spanish-language format, whose flagship is 91.7 KHVU/Houston. This builds on the expansion of Vida Unida’s platforms across the country following HMG’s merger with Way Media earlier this year.
“With over 1.5 million Spanish speakers in the Houston area, we were keen to engage this group with a musical format. But we always believed that Houston would serve as a launching pad to reach other cities in the same way,” said Joe Paulo, president and CEO of Hope Media Group. “Miami represents an exceptional opportunity for us to encourage this community to love Jesus, serve others and spread hope.”
Vida Unida now airs on the following stations across the United States:
96.3 KKWA HD2 Portland, OR
89.7 KAWA HD2 Dallas/Fort Worth, TX
88.7 WAYM HD2 Nashville, TN
91.5 WJWA HD2 Evansville, IN
100.1 W261CW Evansville, IN
89.9 W210CA Birmingham, AL
“It’s an honor to bring a message of hope and restoration to our Latino audiences in so many new cities,” said Myrka Dellanos, co-host of Vida Unida’s morning show, journalist and host of Emmy Award-winning television. “With Spanish speakers representing more than half of the Miami area population, adding a station in Miami will greatly increase Vida Unida’s impact.”
Listeners around the world can listen online at vidaunida.com or on Vida Unida’s free mobile app.
Merging with Way Media in May 2022, Hope Media Group brings together two organizations with a combined 75 years of ministry and media experience, beginning in 1982 with KSBJ/Houston and 1987 with WAYJ/Fort Myers. They engage an audience of over 4 million people worldwide with positive multimedia content on radio and online media. To learn more, visit www.hopemediagroup.com.
