Houston, TX, August 8, 2016 – NGEN radio, sister station of KSBJ, calls for Houston to “Change Your Tune” as the station expands its reach with the launch of 91.7FM. NGEN, which stands for the “NOW” generation will focus on spreading the message of hope, unity and love. The station’s playlist includes artists such as Tori Kelly, twenty one pilots and Lecrae with a goal of being inclusive and representing Houston’s diverse, thriving community.
“Though we are a faith based radio station, we welcome people from all walks of life,” said Brian Meza, NGEN Station Manager. “Our message is to spread hope, unity, and love in a world that badly needs it. We plan to lead the conversation and remind our listeners that there is still good in the world.” Meza, a former multicultural staff leader for Young Life, joined the NGEN team this year as the station manager.
Veteran radio talent Chris Chicago brings nearly two decades worth of experience to the roles of Morning Show Host and Production Director for NGEN radio. “To be part of the NGEN radio brand with its history-making Top 40 format is such a fantastic and exciting opportunity for me,” Chicago said.

NGEN Program Director, Drew Wilson, who has been with NGEN since its launch in 2010, will also host the midday show from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. A familiar voice around Houston, Ayana Mack, will host the afternoon show from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Ayana brings with her several years of experience in radio, having worked at the top radio stations in Houston (97.9 KBXX, 104.1 KRBE).
