At least four (two of which simulcast): WSEW/WWPC, WWNH, and now 106.5.

EMF ("'Educational' Media 'Foundation'") doesn't do that.  EMF gulls
listeners into donating hundreds of dollars a year (if not month) to
pay for their acquisition binge.  106.5 is now running EMF's "K-Love"
satellite format, if I read the reports correctly, and they will
presumably soon ask the FCC to reclassify the station as
non-commercial so they can then apply for a main studio waiver and
make it a full satellite (no local presence at all) of whatever their
home-base station is these days.

EMF also operates a Christian rock service called "Air 1" (based, if
I'm not mistaken, out of KHRI in Hollister, California).
