K-Love Classics is a Christian classic hits radio network owned by Educational Media Foundation (EMF) and is carried over FM stations, translators, and HD subchannels in the United States. Such stations include WAIW 88.1 in Wheaton, Illinois. The network is one of three formats produced by EMF, the other two being K-Love and Air1. Airing Christian music from the 1980s, 1990s, and early in the decade of the 2000s, the K-Love Classics format debuted in June 2018 as an internet-only station but quickly moved to terrestrial radio on FM and HD Radio subchannels after a large response to the new format. The network airs music by artists such as Bryan Duncan, Nichole Nordeman, Keith Green, Point of Grace, Steven Curtis Chapman, Amy Grant, and The Imperials.
K-Love Classics was launched in June 2018 as an online-only station featuring classic Christian songs from the 1980s, 1990s, and the early part of the decade of the 2000s, akin to the secular classic hits format. In response to popular demand, Educational Media Foundation (EMF) began airing the format over its nationwide network of full-power FM stations, low-power translators, and HD Radio subchannels. In August 2018, WAIW in Wheaton, Illinois (a suburb of Chicago) became the first terrestrial radio station to broadcast K-Love Classics. More stations were added over the next several weeks, including in Palm Springs, California as well as subchannels of WLVU in Nashville and KLVB in Sacramento. For a brief period starting in August 2018, K-Love Classics was available in Los Angeles on KKLQ-HD3, but the following month it was replaced with Radio Nueva Vida programming.
