KFNW-FM (97.9 FM) is a contemporary Christian music formatted radio station located in Fargo, North Dakota. Branded Life 97.9, the station is owned and operated by Northwestern College in St. Paul, Minnesota.

KFNW is a non-profit radio station, receiving its funding from listener donations and Northwestern College. The station is also aired on several low-powered broadcast translators outside of its main listening area. The station's programming is also streamed on the Internet.


On June 1, 2007, a fire in the antenna system used by KFNW-FM, WDAY-FM, and KRWK put all three stations off the air. KFNW-FM later resumed broadcasting from a backup transmitter site at reduced power.
