Catholic talk radio stations are experiencing exceptional growth across the nation. What used to be difficult to find, is not available anywhere thanks to online radio programming and more powerful Catholic broadcasts. Even with this growth and technology, there are still many places that Catholic talk radio can be hard to find. Here in Central Minnesota, we have the unique distinction of having a vast broadcast area thanks to our powerful equipment and signal strength. Instead of reaching only one town or area, as many small Catholic stations offer, Catholic Talk AM 1180 KYES can be heard loud and proud all across this great state.

Higher Watts Equals Wider RangeBroadcasting

The ability to listen to radio waves on your car radio or home stereo is made possible through the use of wattage. The more powerful a transmitter, and the more watts that push the signal out, the farther people can pick it up. KYES is blessed to have a radio tower and transmitter that is powered by 50,000 watts. This is almost unheard of for a Catholic talk station and is even equal to that of Twin Cities powerhouse WCCO. Because of this, our signal reaches a broadcast area that spans the state and provides listeners with the exceptional programming, encouragement, and information that will help them in their Catholic faith and walk.

Across the State, Or Across the Country

Along with our massive power to broadcast traditionally, KYES is proud to provide the option to listen online, through your phone, laptop, or other mobile device. That means that whether you live outside our listening area, or are travelling and want to continue listening to our shows, you have 24/7 access easily. You can listen through our website, or our excellent mobile app anywhere in the world, and hear crystal clear Catholic programming wherever you can access the internet.

Why Is This Important?

There is a lot that Catholics and anyone must face in our busy modern world. It can be so easy, and so devastating when we have nowhere to turn for help. Living the Catholic life is complicated; being bombarded daily with temptations and messages contrary to the faith. It is so easy to lose sight of what it important, make poor decisions, and give in to the temptations so prevalent within society. Whether it is an ethical decision you are struggling with, a kernel of doubt, or a question about being Catholic, the programming on AM 1180 KYES is designed and carefully implemented to help. We believe our message is vital, and we think we have a responsibility to fill these needs for as many people as possible. You can count on us to continue delivering Catholic talk radio, heard loud and proud and proud across the state, and across the world.
