FEBC’s Impact

FEBC Kyrgyzstan was officially incorporated in May 2012 when FEBC obtained a local FM station in the capital city of Bishkek (FM 100.5 mHz, Radio OK). In June 2014, a new 1 kw Nautel transmitter and antenna was installed. Potential audience is now 1.5 million. In October 2015, we added a new station, FM 88.8 in Issyk-Kul, w/a potential listening audience of 500,000. In October 2016, a 1,000 watt repeater station – 88.3 FM – was launched in the city of Toktogul, with a population of 19,000. We present ourselves as a family-focused station, providing talk-shows on family matters.

Broadcasts

At the Bishkek studio, we are on the air 24/7 with daily programs in the Kyrgyz language, as well as re-broadcasting a few programs in Russian from our St. Petersburg and Moscow studios.  We also offer online access to our programming.  In 2013, we began distributing radios.

Types of Programs

Music, Community Development & Pre-evangelism

Community Development

FEBC Kyrgyzstan partners with local government leaders to bring awareness and provide solutions to social issues. These partnerships allow local ministries, such as orphanages, foster homes, and drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers to voice their concerns, share their knowledge, and suggest ways the community can improve and support those in need. Additionally, when FEBC Kyrgyzstan hosts live radio events, staff and local ministries distribute goods, such as wheelchairs, to support those who are marginalized within the community.

Listener Response

In 2015, approximately 6,384 listeners called, emailed, or texted and 14,969 visited the web.
