History[edit]

Christian Music Radio first came on the air in 1981 in Pasadena, Texas at 118 watts, playing Contemporary Christian music. The station later changed formats to include Southern Gospel as KSBJ came on the air. Soon KJIC was only playing Southern Gospel music. Around 1983, plans developed that would double the reach of KSBJ and KJIC if the two stations changed frequencies. Once this took place, both stations were able to grow in size and cover more listeners. KJIC grew from 118 watts to 400 watts.

During the 1990s, opportunities arose for the station to grow again, up to 7,700 watts. In the early 2000s, the station once again had the ability to grow, to 36kW, where it stands today. The station also raised enough money from selling 88.1 to buy its own land for a tower, and transmitter.

The bulk of the station's operating expenses are met from donations by the listeners. They also offer sponsorship announcements for businesses that support the station, and advertise events and concerts hosted by churches and other non profit ministries.
