About STAR 99.1FM

The mission of STAR 99.1 is simple: We exist to encourage people into a growing relationship with Jesus through media.

That’s why we share uplifting and encouraging music and positive stories, that can put you in a better mood, keep you connected to God, and even transform your life – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

STAR 99.1 is more than a radio station… we're a community of people all united by common values, and God is using STAR every day to impact people across the Tri State, like Debbie:

"I listen to STAR 99.1 every day. When I listen to the songs, I am focused on God, and I realize how awesome He is. My worries about something that day melt away and I realize God has it under control."

As a 501(c)(3) organization your gift to STAR 99.1 is tax deductible. Your financial support keeps this vital ministry and message going for tens of thousands of families in the NY metropolitan area.

We are also supported by businesses who choose STAR 99.1 to advertise goods or services. If you’d like to learn more about how STAR can help your business grow, let us know!
