Salem Music Network provides network services through a satellite delivery system. It is simple in that stations from across the United States are utilizing this system through their current satellite system. However, as you will see below, we are very unique because we delivery the best Christian music in a format that will result in local success.
Satellite Delivery – Your station will need to have a satellite reception system that includes a satellite dish with the appropriate C-band LNB, a Wegener Unity 4000 series receiver, and an automation system. Our system operates in the C-band frequency. This allows our system to continue its broadcast outside of any rain fade effects that may interrupt higher frequency signals like Ku-Band. Our satellite feed will include both the audio and relay tones to allow your station to sound “Live and Local”.
Live and Local – That is the new marketing phrase that many radio stations like to employ. However, "Live and Local" does not always equate to great radio. Salem Music Network wants to help you station to become THE source for Christian music in your market AND you will be live and local. First, each one of our networks is a live, real-time satellite service. You and your listeners will hear our jocks and music live, just as if you were living the Christian music capital of the world, Nashville, TN. Second, you will be local. You have every opportunity to include local content by utilizing our series of imaging elements each hour. Also, you can leave the network as you need to implement local programming.
Music – Do you have a stack of CD's on your desk? How much time do you spend listening to the songs that receive from the recording industry? That is one of the major challenges that each station’s staff faces. You have to be able to play the music that will keep your listeners engaged. What happens if you play a "bad" or "outdated" song? You lose listeners. Salem Music Network spends more time and more money researching the songs that your listeners want to hear. We don’t play "bad" or "outdated" songs. How do we know it works? Look at the success that our flagship station, WFFH-FM 94FM the Fish in Nashville, TN, is experiencing. As a bonus, we mention the song title and artist at the end of each song so your listeners will stay engaged to your station.
Artists - We realize that the Christian music industry is a family where the relationship between artist and listener is very important. Since we broadcast from Nashville, TN, we have greater access to your favorite artists. We have the opportunity to invite artists to come into the studio for interviews. And we have a new feature to our Today’s Christian Music that is unlike any other Christian radio program. Jaci Velasquez, the widely successful Christian artist, co-hosts the Family Friendly Morning Show with Doug and Jaci Velasquez. She is an artist who is also a wife and mother. She enjoys helping listeners from across the country wake up with the best Christian music.
