Rejoice Broadcast Network, branded as "Rejoice Radio", is a network of Christian radio stations airing a format of Christian talk and teaching and Christian music. The network is owned by Pensacola Christian College.[1]

History

Since 1971, Rejoice Radio has broadcast Christian music and programs to encourage listeners and witness in the community. In the early 1970s, Dr. Arlin Horton was inspired to start a Christian radio station for listeners along the upper Gulf Coast. On June 21, 1971, WPCS began operation. In December 1996, WPCS expanded its outreach by broadcasting the Rejoice Broadcasting Network on its first scintillator station in Eugene, Oregon.[2] Now through the financial support of its listeners, Rejoice Radio is broadcast on almost 40 and 2 affiliates stations and the Internet, reaching listeners across America and around the world. Rejoice Radio continues the vision of broadcasting Christian music and programming to encourage believers and provide a gospel witness in the community.
