Aimee McPherson: First Woman to Preach a Sermon on the Radio

The first woman to preach a sermon on radio, Aimee McPherson was also the first woman to receive a broadcast license from the FCC. Her radio station, KSFG, broadcast religious programs and sermons from Angelus Temple. The reason she bought the radio station was so that she didn’t have share air time with secular radio programs. She often called her radio broadcasts a church without walls because people could worship and be inspired at any time of the day or night.

Radio broadcasts were an important part of the engine that drove Aimee’s popularity in the United States and abroad. With the broadcasts she reached millions of people. She used target marketing to reach different audiences as well. For example, one of the shows broadcast feature music geared toward the African-American audience. This was in keeping with the doctrine of integration practiced in the Foursquare church.
