The Boss (aka Fr. Karry Crites) was told by the Newsboys that the reason no one showed up for the Newsboys concert in Reno was because there was no radio station in town that played their music. Hey! no problem … all we need to do is start up a radio station (no one told him at first that radio stations can cost millions of dollars and have constant operating costs).
Nonetheless, Fr. Karry was inspired to start Renegade Radio. In the daytime he is a hospice chaplain and also provides grief support for youth and adults. He is pastor of a church in north Reno called “Little Church in the Valley.”
