About

The KJLT Story-A Story of God’s Providence What is now KJLT/KJTF came into being because of the vision and dream of one man. Mr. John G. Townsend. Mr. Townsend operated an electronics firm in Sutherland Nebraska for several years. After he found Christ as his Savior in 1945 God laid on his heart a desire to reach his fellow man with the Good News of Salvation. Then came the idea of Christian radio. After research, planning and prayer, broadcasting was begun Dec. 26, 1952 from a studio and transmitter building six miles west of No. Platte on hiway 30. The call letters at that time were KNBR. That first venture was a commercial station, selling advertising while majoring in Christian broadcasts and sacred music. Later, the decision was made to form a non-profit Christian Corporation and change the method of support. In Dec. 1955 The Tri-State Broadcasting Association, Inc. was formed, governed by a Board of Directors. At that time Mr. Townsend transferred the license and assets of the station to the corporation as a gift to the people of the area. Revenue for operation was taken directly to God’s people who were being blessed and strengthened by the ministry of the station. On July 1, 1957 the call letters were changed to KJLT and the power increased from 1000 watts to 5000 watts. Now KJLT could be heard in much of Western Nebraska, North Western Kansas and NE Colorado. Through the many years of broadcasting God has supplied the needs through His people who believe in and are blessed and encouraged by Christian radio. We thank God for the many friends who give and keep the voice of Christian radio sounding out the message of hope in Christ for a hopeless world.
