Bruce was hired as an afternoon announcer and news director and was soon assisting the station engineer with FM translators in Grand Rapids, Bemidji, Ely and Red Lake. When the original engineer left Bruce began maintaining the equipment at Psalm FM.
Bruce became the morning announcer in the mid 1980’s a shift he has occupied for all but a few years since. It was in 1994, following the death of station manager John Blankman, that he began serving as station manager.
“A lot has changed over the years, but as testified to by our listeners letters each day, God still works through the ministry of Christian radio” says Bruce. “As we seek His will for the programming I know Psalm FM will continue to have an impact for God.”
Bruce and his wife Jennie, have been married since 1982. They enjoy playing music and leading people in worship together.
Serving since 1990
It was while searching that Kimberly discovered KBHW “Psalm FM”. As God used the radio station to help her find Jesus, she began volunteering at the station. In 1990 Kimberly began working at Psalm FM as a part-time announcer. When station manager John Blankman was tragically killed in 1994, she began a career as the station bookkeeper. It was in 2004 she began hosting a two-hour music program. This is where she shares her heart and love for Jesus in word and song. Through her radio ministry, she began a speaking and blog writing ministry which continues today.
Kimberly and her husband Jerry stay busy with many things but delight in family-time whenever and wherever possible!
