What does the "New Star 99.1" mean?  We call it "The New Star 99.1" because there are so many new people on the air or in new positions on the air. We have a new perspective on how we select our music, contests, games, promotions, etc.  Also, we have re-purposed and re-determined the focus of Star 99.1 as a station that exists to love, honor and serve God, our listeners, supporters and staff.
