KFIO 1050 AM Is Coming Home Again



KFIO was Spokane's first licensed radio broadcasting station in 1923.

1050AM was Spokane's premier Inspirational station.


KFIO is coming home again at 1050 on the AM dial as the newest affiliate of the American Christian Network.

KFIO, Lord willing, will be equipment testing at full power late October, possibly as early as the 20th.
