The Christian radio station broadcasting from Petersburg has gone off the air.
KRSA went silent December 31st, according to Ed May, president of the board of directors for the corporation, SEA-Christ Broadcasting, that owns the radio station. KRSA’s website says the station is closed and is in the process of redirecting its ministry.
SEA-Christ Broadcasting incorporated in 2010 and bought the station from another non-profit corporation, the Northern Light Network based in Glennallen for one dollar. May declined to do an interview about the reasons for going off the air but explained the bottom line was the non-profit couldn’t afford to keep broadcasting. He said SEA-Christ plans continue with other ventures, possibly internet broadcasting or video work.
KRSA was one of two stations broadcasting from Petersburg, along with KFSK-FM public radio. KFSK is broadcasting Petersburg’s boys basketball games this year, in addition to the girls games the FM station has traditionally aired.
