WFUR-FM (102.9 FM, "Christian Radio") is a radio station broadcasting Christian contemporary music with select Bible teaching programs 24 hours daily. WFUR-FM 102.9 is licensed to Grand Rapids, Michigan. Sister station to; WFUR-AM, WFUR-FM was constructed on the AM tower site in 1960. The Primary reason for construction of WFUR-FM was the early morning and night time audience that WFUR-AM could not reach. at that time, WFUR-AM was only allowed daylight operation (sunrise to sunset). WFUR-FM was the third FM station in the Grand rapids market. Through the years, WFUR-FM increased power as opportunities became available. The final increase took place in 1983. Agreements were signed with other 102.9 FM stations in Ann Arbor and Milwaukee to accept any interference caused by each of them going to 50,000 watts. WFUR-FM constructed a new taller tower(635 ft) and installed a new transmitter (Continental) at that time. WFUR-FM is heard as far north As Big Rapids, Michigan, as far south as Schoolcraft, Michigan and as far east as Lansing, Michigan, and west to lake Michigan.
