The radio station was top-rated in all demographics

According to the recently released Nielsen radio rankings, Shine 104.9 (KEEH-FM) is now the top-rated station for the entire Spokane/Coeur d’Alene metro market. The ratings covered the period of Fall 2019. This is the first time the station has achieved the #1 ranking across all demographics.

“The station scripture text we have on the studio wall reads: Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed,” says Darin Patzer, general manager for Shine 104.9. “God has continued to bless this station in our mission to reach this local community, and thus He deserves all the credit for this exciting achievement.” 

The radio station, owned and operated by the Upper Columbia Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, has three core values: to share encouraging music and Biblical truth; to serve the Christian community by supporting and creating awareness of local ministry events, and to be the hands of Christ through on-air service projects — both locally and internationally. 

As an example, in addition to providing thousands of dollars’ worth of free radio promotion to aid the outreach events of local churches each year, the station continues to partner with listeners to sponsor the digging of freshwater wells in Guatemalan villages with the local volunteer ministry, Water for Life.

Shine 104.9 can be listened to anywhere in the world through a new app, available for both iPhone and Android, which can be downloaded from the website:

In addition, Shine 104.9 has just added a new HD2 channel featuring LifeTalk programming.
