History

In 1991, LifeTalk Radio was founded by Paul Moore, in Yakima, Washington.[4][7] In 2000, the network's headquarters moved to Vonore, Tennessee.[8][4] In October 2001, Moore was given the Society of Adventist Communicators' "Award of Pioneering Innovation" for creating the network.[9][10] In 2002, Moore retired as president of LifeTalk Radio, and was replaced by Phil Follett.[4][7] On July 15, 2004, Steven Gallimore became president of LifeTalk Radio, and the network moved its headquarters to Collegedale, Tennessee later that year.[11] In 2011, LifeTalk Radio moved its headquarters to Simi Valley, California.[12] By 2015, the network's headquarters had been moved to Riverside, California.[3][13]

LifeTalk Radio's first radio station, KSOH in Yakima, Washington, began broadcasting in March 1992.[14] The station was launched with an "interactive talk radio" format, airing Christian talk programming.[14] In 1996, LifeTalk Radio purchased and launched several additional stations.[1][15] In 2000, the network was heard on 15 stations,[16] 8 of which were owned by the network.[17] By 2004, LifeTalk Radio was airing on 35 stations,[18] by 2005 it was airing on 65 stations,[19] and by 2008 the network was airing on 70 stations.[20] By 2015, the network was airing on over 100 stations.[21]
