Axia inspires an upgrade for KFUO

St. Louis’ “Inspirational Christian Radio” plugs into the Livewire™ network

30 June 2011, Cleveland Ohio, USA

St. Louis’ historic KFUO-AM (, one of the oldest continually-operating AM stations in the US, has chosen Axia AoIP consoles and routing equipment to power their newly upgraded studios.

KFUO, a broadcast ministry of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod, has been on the air serving St. Louis with inspirational programming since 1924. Their Axia purchase includes two 20-position Element 2.0 mixing consoles with console Call Controller modules for on-board control of Telos Talkshow systems, PowerStation integrated console engines, and multiple Axia Audio Nodes (networked interfaces for analog, AES/EBU and microphone-level audio sources).

The purchase was made through Broadcasters General Store of Ocala, Florida.

Axia allows broadcasters to quickly and easily build audio networks using switched Ethernet to connect a few rooms, or an entire facility. Axia networks have a total system capacity of more than 10,000 audio streams, and can carry hundreds of digital stereo channels (plus machine logic and PAD) over a single CAT-6 cable, eliminating much of the cost normally associated with wiring labor and infrastructure. Axia radio consoles are a hit, with installations in over 2,000 studios worldwide.
