Northern Christian Radio is a group of non-commercial FM radio stations, based in Gaylord, Michigan.

In the early 1980s a group of Christian men began to explore the possibility of starting a Christian radio station for Northern Michigan. Through their efforts, Northern Christian Radio, Incorporated was formed, and WPHN went on the air on Easter Sunday in 1985.

Northern Christian Radio's main network, which changed its name from "Northern Christian Radio" to 90.5 The Promise FM in the fall of 2009 and includes WPHN, WOLW, WHST, WTHN and the two translators in Petoskey and Newberry, programs a mix of adult contemporary Christian music and teaching programs. Sacred Favorites Radio is also broadcast on a subcarrier of the station.

90.5 The Promise FM is a reporter to Radio and Records' Christian Soft AC/Inspirational playlist panel; it reports under the calls of WOLW, its simulcast station in Cadillac.

Stations

The main station of the network, WPHN, is based in Gaylord, Michigan and operates on 90.5 MHz with 100,000 watts. Northern Christian Radio's studios are located on highway M-32 east of Gaylord. The station has three full-power repeater stations:

Additionally, WPHN also has two translators.

In addition, Northern Christian Radio formerly owned and operated WGJU East Tawas, which operates on 91.3 MHz with 20,000 watts and began operation in the summer of 2008. Originally WZHN, WGJU simulcast the programming of its sister stations for several months but eventually adopted a separate format of Christian Rock music as "91-3 The Rock." The station returned to the air on October 22, 2011, after a lengthy period of silence during which the station was sold to Baraga Broadcasting (owners of WTCK in Charlevoix), with Catholic programming from EWTN.
