Programming on the network is primarily music based with short programming features interspersed throughout the day. Short feature programs are practical, family oriented and directed at applying faith to everyday life. They include "Answers with Ken Hamm", Dr. Dobson's "My Family Talk", "Hey Howard" with Howard Dayton of Crown Financial, and more. The network's feature segment is the Cup 'a Joe Morning show with morning show host Joe Hunter who has been on the air with the network since 1993. The Sound of Life is streamed 24/7 through their website and mobile apps.

History[edit]

Sound of Life was incorporated in the early 1980s by a group of people in the Kingston, New York area who wanted to begin a faith-based radio station for the Hudson Valley which would encourage and reach out to and be supported by listeners. After nearly buying WHVW in 1982, the network obtained the construction permit for 89.7 MHz Kingston, which signed on as WFGB on January 9, 1985.
