Impact Broadcast Signal Update #3

Hello Michigan State University and Capitol Area,

It is with great pleasure for us to announce that Impact 89FM’s broadcast signal, which had been greatly reduced since December 11th, is now back operating at full strength! We received a ton of support from the community during this quiet period, and we can’t thank all of you enough for the love that you sent our way. In the coming days please tune into 88.9FM to remind yourself how much you’ve missed us, because boy have we missed you! We hope to see all of you at our 25th birthday celebration with The Soil & The Sun, Flint Eastwood, and Kim Vi & The Siblings!

Samuel Riddle,
Station Manager
