Air1 is a U.S. Christian radio network owned by the Educational Media Foundation. The network's stations broadcast a Christian Rock format, including some Christian pop. The network is one of three formats produced by the Educational Media Foundation, the other two being K-Love Classics and the Christian contemporary hit radio format K-Love.
In 1986, KLRD began broadcasting Christian music from Yucaipa, California, and went by the on-air moniker K-LORD. In 1994, KXRD was started as a sister station to KLRD. In 1995, K-LORD changed its name to "Air1" and began broadcasting via satellite from St. Helens, Oregon. In 1999, Air1 joined with EMF Broadcasting, and finally in 2002, it moved its headquarters to Rocklin, California. Air1 makes use of broadcast translators to spread the signal across much of the country. As of December 2017, the network lists 123 full powered radio stations and 125 translators of various power levels reaching 43 states.
Originally, Air1 began as a Christian Rock-formatted radio network with its tagline "The Positive Alternative", but in recent years, it has evolved to its current CCM playlist with its slogan "Positive Hits".
The network's program director is Randy Chase.
