The Managing Director of One Life FM radio Ministry Derald Michael is happy with the new establishment of an FM radio station for East Kwaio in Malaita province.
The new FM radio station was officially dedicated and handed over on December 23, 2017, by Mr Michael.
Michael told Island Sun Gizo yesterday that it took three days to set up, dedicate and hand over the station to Minister Gary Manele, Harry Sovo and the Atoifi media team to run the radio station.
He said the programmes to be broadcasted will be strictly on religious and health awareness and the Atoifi media team will be responsible for the contents.
He explained that One Life Radio Ministry will only be responsible for the technical issues.
“Many people from the bush, surrounding villages and along the coast attended and witnessed the dedication and the opening.
“The program was also live broadcasted on One Life’s Designated Frequency 95.3 and many people down the coast were also part of the opening by listening through their mobile phones.
“Work is currently under way to set up two new ones at Auki and Takwa before middle of this year, 2018. The family of One Life Radio Ministry is excited to be part of this ministry,” said Michael.
Michael thanks those who have been involved, especially, the Solomon Islands Seventh Day Adventist Church, the Malaita Sub Region of the Seventh Day Adventist Church.
He also thanks the Atoifi Adventist Hospital Administration as co-hosts for the FM station and members of the local Adventist churches around Atoifi for letting them in and for all the support they have rendered towards this work. He said without them, all these would not have eventuated.
Different vibes of gospel music will be played during late night hours.
The general public in East Kwaio are encouraged to listen.
