"The church body is making it very easy for (Joy FM) to purchase the station, offering to finance it. If that opportunity, if those same terms had been offered to individuals in the (LCMS) and the community, which has been so supportive, the station could have maintained its format, the tradition of the station, and its service to the church, the community and the world."Counters the church's attorney, Kermit Brashear, in an article in the St. Louis Business Journal: "Nobody made a real offer of more than $8 million except Joy FM."
