Salem Media Group, Colorado Springs

Although Colorado Springs is considered a medium-sized broadcast market in the United States, it’s a flagship city for Salem Media, which has been part of our community for more than two decades. Three unique radio stations transmitting on four different frequencies bring us Conservative Talk, Christian Contemporary Music (CCM), and Christian Teaching and Talk across the Pikes Peak region 24/7/365.  To keep it all running as a market leader is a stellar experienced team of communications industry professionals led by Chris Gould, a 35-year radio veteran with more than two decades at Salem, who is not only the local General Manager, but is also Salem senior management. The entire staff of the Colorado Springs office will be supporting the production and marketing success of The Peak, utilizing all of Salem’s corporate resources.   We are honored to be working with them!
