Highlights from Letters to Power 88


Each morning I wake up to Power 88.5 blaring in my room. I leave it just like that until I get ready to be quiet (pray) before leaving my home for the day. That way I can still hear it in the shower and my children can wake up to the positive message that Power 88.5 thrives to provide. When I get in my car the dial is set to, you knew it- Power 88.5.


Power 88.5 has made major impacts on my life. I have always loved music, and started listening to this station a few years back. I never knew that Christian Music was so great!

The Story Behind Goforth Media Power88/WBHY


Have you ever wanted something so much that you were willing to devote your entire life to its pursuit? I grew up with a desire to use Christian radio to impact people's lives for Christ. This is the story of how following God's calling on my life prayers were answered along the way. With simple faith God opened doors that should have remained closed. This quick read will encourage you to "Goforth with the Gospel" and live the life God has called you to live. For any donation to Goforth Media we will send you the story in print by mail when you request it. You can also read it on line free click here

Power 88 Power Increase


If a radio station wants to reach more people, there are two ways to make this happen: more power and a higher broadcast tower. By doing these two things, a station will greatly expand their coverage. Also the sound quality will improve and most importantly: thousands more people are reached with the Ultimate Power of the Love of God.

Coming soon: Power 88 is doing these two things to reach more people. Our power will increase from 33,000 watts to 100,000 watts! We have also been approved to raise the height of our tower, which will increase the strength of our signal over our current coverage area. It will add additional coverage to the Pensacola, Pace and Milton, FL area.

This will require our listeners to join this effort with generous tax deductible donations. The estimated cost for this increase is $100,000. Will you make a donation to Power 88 to help reach thousands more people with the gospel?

You can make a tax-deductible donation on line click here, or mail your check to Power 88, P. O. Box 1328, Mobile, AL 36633.  Estimated completion is early next year. Donations Have mostly been between $25.00 and $100.00. Your help with any amount will be appreciated. “Fundraising is low-key on the air. We don’t want it to cut our music flow down while we are raising money for the power increase. We are talking about it about one minute per hour on the air.
