WSTM (91.3 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a Contemporary Inspirational format licensed to Kiel, Wisconsin, and broadcasting from facilities east of Plymouth on WI 57 with sister station WGXI (1420). The station is currently owned by The Family Radio Network (the former Evangel Ministries), carrying a format shared with sister stations WEMI/Appleton, WEMY/Green Bay and WGNV/Milladore (serving Wausau and Stevens Point) known as "The Family".

As part of "The Family" schedule it also airs The Word in Praise music programming from Salem Communications, along with biblical and family-related programming, such as Insight for Living, Focus on the Family, and RZIM.[1]

History[edit]

The station went on the air as WSTM on May 12, 1998, becoming the second sister station to WJUB (1420) in its history on-air (from 1990-1995, WXER was run as a sister station from the WPLY-WJUB facility). On October 25, 2002 the station changed its call sign to the current WSTM.[2] The merger between Evangel and The Family stations occurred in mid-2017; WJUB was considered surplus to the sale, and was sold to Galaxie Broadcasting, a company made up of Stuart Muck and longtime WJUB on-air programmer and personality Dave Hendrickson, who will continue to maintain the station's format as-is.[3]

Translators[edit]

In addition to the main station, WSTM is relayed by an additional translator to serve the city of Sheboygan, along with nearby Kohler.
