WDYN Radio has reestablished their broadcasting on the 94.9 FM radio frequency.   General Manager Tom Sneed Friday ordered via phone link for engineer Andre Johnson to "Throw that switch," and with that direction Tennessee Temple's WDYN Christian Broadcasting began a new phase and stronger outreach in the greater Chattanooga area.

The timing for opening the FM facility is just in time for WDYN's Fall Share-a-thon, one of two annual fundraising efforts by which funds are raised from listeners, local businesses, and those who are dedicated to outstanding Christian broadcasting.  The Fall Share-a-thon will air this week, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday beginning each morning at 7 a.m.

WDYN has been in Christian Broadcasting for over 40 years in the Chattanooga area and presents southern gospel music, news, sports, weather, traffic and many local and nationally-known Christian programs.

The Share-a-thon will air on AM-980, FM 94.9 and on the Internet at www.wdyn.com.
