Radio Amistad is the Spanish-language ministry of the Good News Network. This ministry began when the Good News Network purchased WBLR in Batesburg-Leesville, South Carolina. After visiting a poultry processing plant in that county, the need for a Spanish ministry became evident. After designating this broadcast to the Spanish format, we added more Spanish-language stations in Soperton and Sparta, Georgia, and Valley Head, Alabama, with repeaters in Lake Oconee, Lumber City, and Higgston, Georgia.
We partnered with the Radio Amistad out of Houston, Texas to provide most of the music and content. Radio Amistad is Spanish for "Friendship Radio", and it reaches a large Hispanic community with Christian music as well as teaching, such as "In Touch" with Charles Stanley, "Focus On The Family" and others, only in Spanish. These stations have been very effective in reaching these communities with the gospel.
Dolly Martin is our Program Director, and she regularly translates letters and forwards phone messages to us, detailing the impact of these ministries in our communities. If you would like more information about Radio Amistad, you can visit their website:
