History[edit]

In 1991, LifeTalk Radio was founded by Paul Moore, in Yakima, Washington.[4][7] In 2000, the network's headquarters moved to Vonore, Tennessee.[4] In October 2001, Moore was given the Society of Adventist Communicators' "Award of Pioneering Innovation" for creating the network.[8][9] In 2002, Moore retired as president of LifeTalk Radio, and was replaced by Phil Follett.[4][7] On July 15, 2004, Steven Gallimore became president of LifeTalk Radio, and the network moved its headquarters to Collegedale, Tennessee later that year.[10] In 2011, LifeTalk Radio moved its headquarters to Simi Valley, California.[11] By 2015, the network's headquarters had been moved to Riverside, California.[3][12]

LifeTalk Radio's first radio station, KSOH in Yakima, Washington, began broadcasting in March 1992.[13] The station was launched with an "interactive talk radio" format, airing Christian talk programming.[13] In 1996, LifeTalk Radio purchased and launched several additional stations.[1][14] In 2000, the network was heard on 15 stations,[15] 8 of which were owned by the network.[16] By 2004, LifeTalk Radio was airing on 35 stations,[17] by 2005 it was airing on 65 stations,[18] and by 2008 the network was airing on 70 stations.[19] By 2015, the network was airing on over 100 stations.[20]
