October 29, 30 & 31, 2015
In 1962, three couples gathered together to faithfully pray about launching a Christian radio ministry in Connecticut. Several more people joined with them over the next seven years, and in October 1969 WIHS started to broadcast the Good News of Jesus Christ for the very first time!
By the faithfulness of God using listeners just like you, WIHS remains a listener supported radio outreach that is free from commercial advertising. We give God all the glory!
Faith Sharing Days is the only time WIHS appeals to its listeners to support the station financially. During the three days of Faith Sharing listeners are encouraged to share their faith by making a personal and active commitment to help support the Christian Radio Ministry of 104.9 FM, WIHS.

Can You Hear Us Now?
Work got underway in early September to clear trees around the WIHS tower site. Some of the taller trees may have been encroaching on our transmission signal, particularly to the West of Middletown.
While there is more work to do over the next couple of weeks, we hope that you'll find WIHS is coming in stronger and clearer on your radio as a result of the work! (Click images to enlarge.)
