103.7 KHJK becomes Air 1

UPDATE FROM AIR1

Air1 Radio Network announced today the addition of 103.7 KHJK-FM Houston. The station is scheduled to flip to Air1 at 5pm CST.

Paul Goldsmith, Air1 Program Director, stated, “Houston is a world class city and we are thrilled to be here. When Air1 added KZAR-FM/San Antonio last winter, the response was Texas-sized, and it quickly became the most listened to station in the Air1 network.
We expect the response to be even greater in H-town. Texans love Air1 and we love
them!”

Air1’s Christian CHR format is carried on 105 stations and listened to by over 2 Million people each week.

Cumulus' 103.7FM Houston’s Adult Alternative – KHJK-FM has deleted its Facebook and website. Sign of an impending format switch for the troubled signal that has a hard time covering the Houston radio market.

Reports have said the former JACK and 103.7 KIOL KLOL clone will now broadcast the satellite Christian network Air1.

Owned by EMF Broadcasting, Air1 is a non-commercial radio network and is branded as "The Positive Alternative." It plays Christian artists from Switchfoot and Relient K to tobyMac and the Fray.

Air1 is the sister station to K-LOVE (where Mike Kankelfritz now works) which sounds more like KSBJ. Air1 would sound more like NGEN (another KSBJ station).

Before the station went off the air, the old KHJK staff tweeted to vote them station of the year in the Houston Press Music Awards.
