Gifts or Creatures

Sure, it’s been awhile since our last Michigan Artist Spotlight, but we were just waiting for an artist as talented and profound as Lansing’s own Gifts or Creatures!

In the coming weeks, the Impact will be focusing on this husband and wife Americana duo through interviews, videos, album reviews, and even content generated by the band themselves. Keep your eyes peeled and your ears open these next couple of weeks; we’ve got a lot to show you!

Impact Broadcast Signal Update

Hello Impact lovers and listeners alike!

The past month has been a rough patch for you, as well as the 200+ MSU students that make 88.9 your favorite radio station. As you may know, our broadcast signal strength has been greatly reduced since early December due to weather damage to our transmitter wire. Since our last update we have gotten our damaged equipment evaluated, and have hired a crew to begin repairs on our transmitter permitting weather. Though we are not back on-air yet, this is a major step forward in the process to getting there. Impact hopes to be back at full strength in time for our 25th Birthday Celebration Concert on February 20th with The Soul & The Sun alongside Flint Eastwood. We have a lot of surprises to unveil in appreciation to our fans for 25 years of listening, so please hold tight as Impact looks to come back better than ever!

Samuel Riddle,
Station Manager
