HOW TO BECOME
AFFILIATED WITH FBN
The FCC will open small windows to file for new applications
from time to time, usually for Low Power FM (LPFM)
stations. These type stations are small in power, but
are designed to cover an entire community. We
regularly check the FCC website to see if there are any
upcoming windows of opportunity.
Another option is to purchase an existing AM or FM station
or lease time on one. The FCC posts lists of stations
that are off the air. They call them silent
stations. Please click the following links to see
if there are any in your area: Silent AM List , Silent FM List.
If you find one on the list, we will be glad to help you
with the contact information so you can get in touch with
the owners. If there are no stations in your area, we can
give you the name and phone number of a radio broker. A
radio broker sells stations on commission, however, there is
no charge to ask if there is anything available near
If you have a station and wish to use FBN programming,
please call Pastor Eborn or Michael Ebron, the general
manager at FBN headquarters for more information. If you
have a Construction Permit or have acquired a station that
needs work before going on the air, and you want to carry
FBN programming, please contact missionary David Robinson.
Pastor Eborn must give final approval before we
begin the work.
WHAT WE DO AS FBN
We operate on a
love offering basis, however, many times there are
expenses incurred that would also need to be covered. We
ask that new affiliate churches take us on as missionaries
to help us with our monthly living expenses.
