Microspace Aids Christian Radio In Program Distribution
Raleigh, N.C.-based Microspace Communications, a provider of point-to-multipoint satellite services and the operator of a large business satellite network, was selected by the Christian Radio Consortium (CRC) to deliver programming to more than 1,000 radio stations across the United States.
Microspace will use its VELOCITY satellite system to fulfill a multi-year contract to carry programming for such CRC member organizations as Ambassador Inspirational Radio, Focus Satellite Network, Moody Broadcasting Network, Salem Radio Network, SkyLight Satellite Network, USA Radio Network and VCY America.
CRC facilitates the distribution of Christian radio programming, while minimizing the need for radio stations to adopt costly new technologies. The group has been using a common satellite-based system for five years, after developing a standard platform now used by all of its members.
