For several weeks, the Gospel Fellowship Association executive committee has been wrestling with the decision to sell WMUU (which is wholly owned by GFA). After prayer and discussion, we have entered into an agreement for the sale.
Gospel Fellowship Association is a worldwide-Gospel-furthering organization. The radio station was a very expensive local manifestation of our mission. We believe the proceeds from this sale will enable GFA to better accomplish its objectives for spreading the Gospel.
The distressing part to us in all this is the effect on our loyal listening audience, who will feel like this is a death of a loved one. An announcement was made on Friday, August 24th, that WMUU, Inc. has been sold to Salem Radio Network.. The new format will not be religious--it will be news/talk. For those who want the current WMUU programming, the new owner will be providing it via live streaming through the Internet. Of course, that will be available to anyone anywhere in the world who has a computer.
Considering that terrestrial-based radio is coming to the point where it is being diminished as the way people receive their news, information, music, etc., the executive board of Gospel Fellowship Association was unanimously impressed, that it was the Lord's will to sell the station.
