Twin Cities Signal[edit]

In 2008, PraiseFM began broadcasting its station on 95.3 MHz KNOF in the Twin Cities forming a partnership with North Central University. The studio is located North Central University campus in downtown Minneapolis in the former Comm Arts building .[1]

Selby Gospel Broadcasting Corporation eventually sold KNOF to Praise Broadcasting by June 2014.[2]

In 2015, Praise FM was approached by Northern Lights Broadcasting with a proposal to purchase of KNOF. This purchase would allow PraiseFM transfer their signal from 95.3FM to KTWN's 96.3 HD2, increase their signal to a greater portion of the Twin Cities area.[3] On January 4, 2016, PraiseFM transferred their signal from KNOF 95.3 to KTWN 96.3 HD2. The sale to the Pohlad family (who also own the Minnesota Twins, netted PraiseFM nearly $8 million. [4]
