CAMARILLO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/14 -- Salem Communications Corporation (NASDAQ: SALM) announced today it has re-branded its Contemporary Christian Music station in Omaha, KGBI-FM as the new 100.7 The Fish. This is the 8th Salem station to brand itself The Fish, following the lead of stations in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Nashville, and other markets.
Listeners to KGBI-FM were introduced to the new branding at the station's sold out "Winter Jam" concert attended by 8,000 over the past weekend. "As we looked at ways to extend brand awareness of this great station in the market, we knew that having a great name would make a big difference. This name has been tried and tested in other Salem markets so we know it works," said Salem General Manager Greg Vogt.
The Contemporary Christian Format continues to grow in popularity in Omaha and other markets, as new and exciting artists have jumped into the format with both feet. Artists like MercyMe, Chris Tomlin, Phil Wickham and Big Daddy Weave have taken the format by storm, joining older veterans like Michael W. Smith and Steven Curtis Chapman.
"We know that to take this station to the next level in terms of both ratings and revenue we need strong on and off air positioning," said Vogt. "This new branding as The Fish has already been well received by listeners both in terms of our calls and social media. We couldn't be more excited."
