Great Lakes Radio has a long history dedicated to serving the church community. We are family owned and have worked exclusively with churches for over 20 years. We take pride is specializing in growing ministries of all sizes.

Unlike global conglomerates and Large corporations, Great Lakes Radio / WBGX practices a simple business philosophy. We pride ourselves in catering to churches that cannot afford time on other radio and TV stations. We have been successful at keeping broadcasting in reach for any size ministry. 

Our long history serving church’s has created very unique opportunities for us to learn what is most important to broadcasting churches. Price, Service, and Consistency.

Over our history we have never raised our prices on any of our current customers. We want every client to be part of the family and stay with us for years and years. We accomplish these long relationships by serving our customers and never raising rates. Once you start with us that price is what you pay for as long as you like.
