New radio station hits the air in central Iowa

UNION (KWWL) -- Iowa's newest radio station is on the air.

THE DOVE, 91.9 FM, KTDV, hit the airwaves Friday and will cover Central Iowa for a 50 mile radius from its tower in Union.

Radio station management says THE DOVE will feature Adult Contemporary Christian  music from artists like Steven Curtis Chapman, Amy Grant, Jaci Valesques and Michael W. Smith.

"Christian Music and concert ticket sales are skyrocketing. A new generation is searching for an uplifting and refreshing alternative," said Mark Osmundson, General Manager of THE DOVE.

The station will also carry news, weather, sports and informational programming of interest to Central Iowa listeners.

More traditional music and programs will be featured on Sundays.

"They find refuge from the world in the encouraging sounds of Adult Contemporary Christian music. A family-friendly format is what listeners want," said Osmundson.

THE DOVE joins the family of radio and television stations, KDAO-AM, KDAO-FM and KDAO-TV, broadcasting from the KDAO facilities located at 1930 N. Center Street in Marshalltown.
