Radio Nueva Vida

Radio Nueva Vida (New Life) is a Spanish-Christian radio network located in California, United States. It is owned and operated by The Association for Community Education, Inc. a California non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization established in 1981. Radio Nueva Vida does not affiliate itself with any church. This network of stations has the capacity of broadcasting all over the US via a satellite provider, and over the Internet.

History

Radio Nueva Vida began broadcasting on January 18, 1987 after building radio station KMRO 90.3 FM in Camarillo, California. In 1996 additional full-service stations were added to the network to serve Bakersfield and Kern County (KGZO 90.9 FM) and Fresno and surrounding counties (KEYQ 980 AM). It added additional FM repeater stations, which cover the cities of: Salinas, San Bernardino, Santa Ana, Victorville, Indio, Palm Springs, Soledad, Los Banos, San Fernando Valley, Colton, Coachella, Desert Center, Lancaster, Santa Barbara, King City, Santa Maria and Redmond, Oregon.

In 2000 and 2001, Nueva Vida underwent a major expansion acquiring three full-power AM stations, all in California, that had been broadcasting in English. They were KLTX 93.5 FM (Long Beach/Los Angeles area), KEZY 1240 AM (Riverside/San Bernardino and the Inland Empire), and KSDO 1130 AM (San Diego). All three stations had been owned by major corporations, KLTX and KEZY by Salem Communications and KSDO by Chase Media with a joint sales agreement with Clear Channel Communications. The new stations are for profit stations which allows them to accept advertisements in order to help pay the cost of operation.

After Educational Media Foundation discontinued its affiliation with God's Country Radio Network, EMF switched most of the former God's Country stations to Radio Nueva Vida in November 2010.
