    Educational Media Foundation exists to create and distribute compelling media that encourages and inspires audiences to have a meaningful relationship with Christ. What began as a single radio station 40 years ago has grown into the nation's largest Christian radio networks, K-LOVE and Air1. Broadcast on more than 1,000 signals across all 50 states, EMF is also among the top 10 U.S.-based audio streaming companies.

    Recently, EMF has expanded beyond radio into other media formats, including:

    - K-LOVE Books & K-LOVE Films
    - AccessMore & K-LOVE On Demand (a faith-focused
    podcasting platform & a streaming video service)
    - WTA Media (a leader in faith-based films & publishing)

    Additionally, EMF offers free Biblical support through its 35-person Pastoral Care team, of which 13 members are fulltime pastors who come alongside audiences to help them grow closer to Jesus, wherever they are in their faith journey.
