KRSA (580 AM) was a broadcast radio station licensed to Petersburg, Alaska, serving Southeast Alaska. KRSA was last owned and operated by Sea-Christ Broadcasting Corporation.[1]

KRSA's original construction permit was issued on July 24, 1981[2] and the station went on the air for the first time on September 24, 1982,[3] under the ownership of Northern Light Network.[4] Northern Light Network was and still is a subsidiary of the interdenominational Christian mission agency, SEND International, which is based out of Farmington, Michigan.[5][6]

On December 14, 2010, Northern Light Network sold KRSA and the three association translator stations to Petersburg-based Sea-Christ Broadcasting Corporation for $1.00.[7] The deal was closed on February 3, 2011 with the new owner, Sea-Christ Broadcasting Corporation, taking full ownership of the station and translators.[8]

KRSA debuted a new live-and-local morning news and talk program called "The Narrow Way" shortly after the sale was closed.[9]


KRSA and its translators fell silent on December 31, 2012.[10] Board of Director President Ed May said, at the time, the station was "in the process of redirecting its ministry" and that the "non-profit couldn't afford to keep broadcasting".[10]

On December 11, 2013, KRSA resumed operations according to documents filed with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).[11] More than a month later, on January 30, 2014, the FCC announced that Sea-Christ Broadcasting Corporation had failed to file a license renewal application for KRSA or any of its translators.[12] The licenses for KRSA and its translators all expired and were cancelled on February 1, 2014.[12][13]


KRSA carried programming featuring religious teaching from various sources including James Dobson's Focus on the Family, Moody Radio, VCY America and Salem Radio Network.[14] The station also aired secular programming including the morning news program Bill Bennett's "Morning in America" and top-of-the-hour news from United News and Information.[14] Sports programming from the Seattle Mariners Radio Network and the Seattle Seahawks Radio Network were also heard on KRSA.[15][16]


KRSA previously broadcast its main frequency not only at 580 AM, but also on three translator stations. Those stations all previously broadcast at 94.9 FM.[17][18][19]
