KSAI was on air from 1978 to 2002, when FEBC decided to focus on its shortwave station. Aside from airing religious programming, KSAI was also the first radio station on the island to air ethnic programming in Tagalog, Korean, and Chinese languages.[1] Prior to 1978, KSAI was initially established by the United States Office of War Information in June 1945.[3][4]
