KXEG First Christian Radio Outlet with Alexa Skill


Gabrielle Broadcasting's KXEG-AM (1280 The Trumpet) Phoenix became the first Christian broadcaster to launch an Alexa skill via XAPPmedia in early May. Amazon Echo owners can access the station and its lineup of Christian programming via the Echo. To start listening, listeners simply say, "Alexa, enable Twelve Eighty The Trumpet skill." Alexa will confirm the station is enabled and then listeners can simply say, "Alexa, open 1280 The Trumpet" to hear the live stream.

"1280 The Trumpet is Arizona's oldest Christian Radio Broadcaster. It has been on the air since 1956 and now is the first Christian broadcast station with an Alexa skill for Amazon Echo," said Gabrielle Broadcasting CEO Jacob Barker. "Millions of people have bought an Amazon Echo over the past two years and we want them to have access to high quality Christian broadcasting. We also want to continue to serve our Phoenix community and be available on all the devices that people use everyday."

"Forecasts show that Amazon Echo will be in over 20 million U.S. homes in 2017 and 15 million cars. Those numbers are expected to grow nearly five fold by the end of 2020. We are proud to be working with 1280 The Trumpet to bring Christian broadcasting to Phoenix listeners and the broader Amazon Alexa user base. The Amazon Echo is bringing radio back into the home and the Gabrielle Broadcasting team is leading the way among Christian radio stations," added XAPPmedia CEO/co-founder Pat Higbie.
