Blue Ridge Broadcasting / 106.9 The Light WMIT

Award-winning, listener supported 106.9 the Light was founded by Billy and Ruth Graham in 1962 and has been operated by Blue Ridge Broadcasting ever since. Committed to leading as many people as possible into a personal and dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ, the station encourages families and individuals with hope-filled music and solid, powerful Bible teaching. It’s our prayer that God will use 106.9 the Light to help our listeners mature in their faith and be proactive in serving Christ. Our music features the latest songs from artists such as Newsboys, Chris Tomlin, Laura Story, Casting Crowns, Jeremy Camp and Mandisa as well as some of the most popular songs of the last few years. Our music programming is hosted by local personalities who are passionate about sharing the Good News of the Gospel. Our personalities understand the lifestyle of today’s radio listener and tailor their programs accordingly. 106.9 the Light’s teaching programs feature commentary and insight from today’s leading speakers: Chip Ingram, Greg Laurie and Dr. David Jeremiah, just to name a few. 106.9 the Light broadcasts the Good News of God’s love to a seven-state area that includes the metro regions of Asheville and Charlotte, North Carolina; Greenville-Spartanburg, South Carolina; the Tri-Cities in Tennessee as well as Knoxville, TN. Its signal reaches more than 6 million people — making it the 12th-largest FM radio station in the nation, in terms of coverage area. 106.9 the Light is constantly seeking ways to reach out to listeners with fun, family-oriented events. We also encourage our listeners to partner with us in various mission projects. Our listeners donated funds that provided three years of safety for children in the red light district in Mumbai, India, donated backpacks for local schools, donated 650 pairs of shoes to orphans in China, sponsored children for elementary education through Christian schools in Beirut, Lebanon, collected funds to reach 12 million people in areas of Russia through a radio project with Trans World Radio and collect shoeboxes annually for Operation Christmas Child.

Tri-County Veterans Support Network

Tri-County Veterans Support Network is a 501(c)(3) comprised of many veteran service agencies from across the Charleston Tri-County area. We are committed to collaboratively working together to identify veterans and families in crisis in our community and help them navigate their way to stability. There are many difficulties our veterans face in their transition home. A major challenge is overcoming the loss of identity and direction upon exiting the military and many are ill prepared for reintegration into their community upon their return. In a word, stability is our objective but it will come in many different forms given the wide array of difficulties veterans and their families face. Exiting the military triggers an extremely stressful and life changing pivotal moment of introspective evaluation and reinvention to find a sense of value and life purpose. How they resolve this can have a tremendous impact on their future. Many are left deficient in coping with their difficulties and as they deal with the traumas of war, this added stress compounds their problems which can be extremely daunting and leave them feeling completely overwhelmed and without hope, creating any number of reactions from depression and isolation to rage or suicide. The Tri-County Veterans Support Network serves as a collaborative community “clearing house” or liaison to comprehensive supportive services for our veterans. We are the crossroads where a grateful community and our veterans meet. We serve them by proactively finding them in the community and working with other agencies within our network to assess the veteran and families needs, help them to come up with an action plan, give them practical tools to implement their plan and plug them in to the appropriate local, state and national resources to make their plan a reality. We accomplish this through coordinating a collaborative multidisciplinary community response with a network of many veteran service agencies throughout the community, offering services to our veterans focused in five main areas: health and wellness; basic needs assistance; education and vocational training; and employment and business development. Our ultimate goal is to have a replicable model for both metropolitan and rural areas, to give comprehensive support to our veterans that can be transplanted into communities across the country.
