Pulse 99.5FM is MOVING!

We’re moving UP THE DIAL!

Four years ago, we began a campaign to upgrade Pulse 99.5FM.

  • We kicked off a new CityStop program, which is now reaching over 25,000 people per year.
  • We upgraded our studio, improving our production capabilities and on-air sound.
  • Pulse now has a new website, giving you more access to Pulse music and artists.
  • We recently launched our new mobile app, allowing you to take us with you and interact with us wherever you go.

The upgrade is working! Our listenership has grown considerably over the past four years, and it will continue to grow. 

In addition to these upgrades, we announced four years ago that the FCC was considering a request to move Pulse and two other stations to different frequencies to better serve our listeners.  We have now heard that we will be switching from 99.5FM to 101.7FM very soon!

Pulse-ColorSticker-CS2This switch will happen in early April 2015. Find out how you can help us get the word out here!

Thanks for your continued prayer and support. The only thing that’s changing is our frequency… we’re excited to continue serving Des Moines and central Iowa with music that inspires and raises your PULSE!

            A True SuperFan!

            10257505_10204329308291924_2270355279896330547_oHer name was Christina Franz. She loved her family, photography, and Pulse music. And she combined those three in a truly unique way!

            She traveled with her mom, Melinda, and other family members, following Pulse 101.7 FM artists around the country and photographing their shows. And she loved it!

            This summer, she was involved in a car accident that took her life. Because she was such a fan of Pulse music, her family is offering her SuperFan passes to one lucky Pulse listener! Tune in this Wednesday just after 3:30PM for details as we interview Christina’s mom and honor Christina’s life and passion for Christian music and artists.
