Listen To Our Stream Worldwide

KNEO Radio operates in the Neosho-Joplin area of Southwest Missouri on the 91.7fm signal. It is KNEO's duty to provide you with the programming you need to be an informed Christian.

In the day we now live in, it seems that hearing the Word of God is rare. Many substitutes are offered from many pulpits across the land, but here at KNEO our mission is clear; impact society, never compromise the message of the Gospel, and be flexible with the methods used to get The Word out. Times change and so do people, but God's Word never changes!

There will be discontent even in our own ranks at times and some will want to challenge The Word and how it relates to today's world; however, here at KNEO, The Word stands firm and from that we will broadcast daily. We must make prayer our #1 priority and the study of The Bible the guide to accomplish the mission of Sky High Broadcasting.

The establishment of KNEO as an FM signal came through the efforts of several individuals and by the leadership of Abundant Life Assembly of God  Church in Neosho, Mo. Many different people with technical experience in radio and others stepping in as  prayer warriors, were crucial in getting KNEO on its feet.

Our History

From then to now....


KNEO Starts Broadcasting

KNEO became an official radio station and operated from Abundant Life Assembly of God Church on the 91.5fm frequency. It was broadcasted from a 70-foot tower at 380 watts. When KNEO began, the station was on air from 6am to 6pm every day. Bill Nichols became pastor of Abundant Life Church in 1987, and within 6 months, KNEO was on the airwaves full time.


Signal Increase

KNEO expanded its signal another 10-15 miles by renting a translator at 106.3fm.


KNEO Relocated, Signal Change

KNEO moved to its present location on Hwy 86, west of Neosho, and with the move KNEO changed it's signal to 91.7fm. KNEO began broadcasting with 2,760 watts of power from a 340 foot tower for 24 hours a day from a converted two car garage, covering a 35-mile radius.


Sky High Broadcasting Founded

Mark and Sue Taylor founded Sky High Broadcasting Corporation, which today owns KNEO Radio.


Signal Increase

KNEO raised its power to 4,600 watts, now covering a 50-mile radius.


Signal Increase

KNEO was given the opportunity to expand its radio signal. KNEO's output power was increased to 14,000 watts and today covers a 65-mile radius in the Four State Area including approximately 650,000 people.


Major Expansion

KNEO constructed an approximate 2000 sq ft, 2 level add-on to house new office space, storm shelter, and storage. God blessed us with the funds and it was constructed debt free!


Spreading The Word Through The Storm

In December of 2021, after many years of working at it, KNEO was finally able to get their new generator installed. It is a 100,000 kilowatt Generac designed to run the whole station in the event of a power outage. Part of our job is to inform the public during critical situations and severe weather events.

What We Do

We operate 24 hours per day, 365 days per year and broadcast over 7,000 sermons each year.

  • KNEO airs 15 or more programs that can't be heard on any other radio station in the area.
  • We sponsor a Community Christmas Dinner for the area each year on Christmas Day which turns out hundreds. KNEO is the local headquarters for Operation Christmas Child, the shoe box ministry for Newton and McDonald County, and for over 23 years we have offered a Listener Appreciation Night with finger foods and a concert for all those that support the ministry throughout the year.
  • We broadcast High School sports which allows us to reach into an unchurched setting and develops good relationships with your schools. Many games can also be seen online with video webcasting.

KNEO is governed by a Board of Directors, made up from the area of various church backgrounds. Our operating philosophy is:

  • Never change your God-given vision, but be willing to be flexible with the methods to see it work.
  • Engage the culture without compromising the truth.
  • Never bend the Gospel, but expand it.

"We always have to remember that it's not anything we have done. God's the One who puts these things together. We just need to remember that we're only pieces in a giant chess set and to let God move us where He needs us. Then He'll bring everything together. We're just pawns in the King's hand."
