Decidedly Academic. Distinctively Christian.

99.9 KFCS

“You’re Listening to the Voice of the Eagles here on FM 99.9…KFCS”

Some may be familiar with posted signs near airports that instruct travelers to tune their radios for airport news and information. That’s idea behind our new radio frequency here at Foothill Christian School. When families arrive in the morning and afternoon and make their way through carline, they can tune-in to FM 99.9 for the latest news and happenings here at Foothill. The creative brainchild of Technology Director, Tony Ramirez, and Marketing Coordinator, Alina Rietze, KFCS 99.9 FM is an actual radio frequency, licensed and authorized by the FCC. Radios can begin receiving the 99.9 FM radio signal within 500 feet of the Baseline Campus.

Radio personality and Foothill Mom, Irma Blanco (a familiar voice to southern California radio listeners), teamed-up with Foothill’s Director of Development, Jerry Kitchel, to co-host the KFCS launch during carline on Tuesday. FCS Insiders, Ben and Bekah, joined Irma and Jerry during the hour-long broadcast. Irma, whose most recently job included a morning show on 104.3 MYFM with “Valentine in the Morning”, is a 23 year veteran of professional radio. Jerry said that Irma brought “lots of energy and sparkle to the morning,” For Irma, it was an enjoyable assignment which she described as “lots of fun helping launch the school’s first radio broadcast on 99.9!”

Initial plans call for a daily broadcast that will incorporate student “Insiders” who will pre-record announcements and events for airing Monday through Friday when school is in session.

Listen to our first broadcast from yesterday morning!

One of the auction items at last year’s golf tournament was ‘Lunch with Mr. G’, which the students cashed in today. Save the date and plan to join us for this year’s tournament on May 14th at South Hills Country Club! Yesterday our team was able to provide 50 moms with diapers/wipes/baby clothes and over 100 families with groceries and over 150 people with medical care at the clinic. Our team is soaking it all in and debriefing every night to discuss what they’re feeling and learning. #drtrip2018 Our medical clinic saw 98 patients today! Our students served food, distributes shoes, played with kids, painted nails, and ultimately shared the love of Christ with children at the Manny Mota Foundation today. Read more... link in profile. FCS alumni, Sophia Lorey, was so impacted by her 8th grade trip to the DR that she returned this year, her senior year of high school, with our team! Read about her experience today on the blog!
