CHICAGO, Feb. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ -- Moody Radio launched the only fully operational Christian Spanish-speaking radio station in Chicago on Monday, Feb. 6. With the tagline, "Compartiendo Esperanza. Siempre Contigo." (Sharing Hope. With You Always.), Radio Moody Chicago will broadcast daily on WMBI-AM 1110.

"There are approximately two million Hispanics living in Chicago and with no Spanish-speaking, Bible-based Christian radio station serving them, we believe this station and its programming will fill a significant need for this community," said Collin Lambert, vice president of Moody Radio. "We are excited about this initiative and look forward to hearing from listeners how Moody is ministering to them."

The Hispanic community is the nation's largest and fastest-growing minority group, making up 26 percent of the total population in Chicago. Radio Moody Chicago will provide concrete biblical teaching, address relevant issues affecting Hispanics and provide the hope of Jesus through inspirational music native to the Hispanic culture.

"Through this effort Moody is recapturing its original vision for reaching the Hispanic community and expressing a renewed commitment to serve them," said Elsa Mazon, project manager for Radio Moody's Programming. "We want to bring hope and encouragement to our Spanish-speaking brothers and sisters and there is no better time than right now."

In addition to original Spanish-speaking programming, Radio Moody Chicago will utilize existing Moody Radio ministry partners with Spanish-based teaching such as Turning Point with Dr. David Jeremiah, Grace to You with Dr. John MacArthur and Insight for Living with Dr. Chuck Swindoll.

Of the sixteen program ministries that have been a staple on AM1110, listeners are able to hear the same content from thirteen of these ministries on Moody Radio Chicago (WMBI 90.1FM). A list of these programs is available on the web at

Moody Radio also recently launched a 24 hours a day, seven days a week Urban Praise Radio format on its 90.1FM HD3 channel which is also available online at
