First Baptist Family Church members gathered March 3 with Island residents and members of the business community to celebrate the start of WSRX 89.5 Praise FM, a 100,000-watt FM radio station owned and operated by the Family Christian Broadcasting network.
The church acquired the radio station at the same time they purchased the 43-acre campus on SR 951 in Naples.
