.- Catholics around Montana’s Gallatin Valley now have a new radio alternative. Fr. Bob Hall, pastor of Bozeman’s Resurrection University Parish, recently established KOFK, which stands for King of Kings, at 98.3 FM.
The station is affiliated with the Wisconsin-based Relevant Radio network which provides much of its programming.
The non-profit KOFK has been operating for about a month now, from a small trailer located behind the parish on the campus of Montana State University.
Fr. Hall said that, “A good Lutheran man helped us to get it started," referring to the engineering and broadcasting support the group received from Bill Reier of Reier Broadcasting.
The stations local programming plans include interviews with Helena Bishop George Thomas, discussions with young men discerning a call to the priesthood, and other local and national concerns.
Fr. Hall told the “Bozeman Daily Chronicle” that, "The station is geared toward a Catholic audience, but should be generally interesting to all Christians."
One of Resurrection’s parishioners told the “Chronicle” that the station “seems to be catching on like wildfire.”
