The college wants to keep WGTS in a digital format, accessible to listeners with high-definition radios, even if the broadcast license is sold, he added.

Channel Surfing runs on Wednesdays. E-mail krowland@washingtontimes.com.

WGTS isn’t the only Christian station in Washington: WAVA-FM (105.1) broadcasts Christian music and talk, and WPGC-AM (1580) along with the new “Praise” WPRS-FM (104.1) play gospel.

WGTS station manager John Konrad declined to comment for this article. But in a recent statement on the WGTS Web site, he told listeners: “We’ve all done our share of worrying about the future of WGTS in recent days, but you know what, God is completely in control. … He has a purpose for WGTS and that purpose is being worked out every step of the way.”
