It won't take much for this station to be profitable. It's simply a
simulcast of programming being beamed to dozens of affiliates
nationwide. There's little to no promotion outside of word of mouth
in church circles. The only major expenses EMF will have is the
electric bill and occasional transmitter maintenance. If a small
percentage of their local audience ponies up a few bucks
occasionally, it should cover expenses. I'm sure that some EMF
stations lose money while others make quite a bit, but balanced out
across their entire network they are most likely making a respectable
profit, something that most commercial stations (religious or
otherwise) can't say right now.
