Snow has already fallen, and now the 'unofficial' start of the Christmas holiday has become more official for folks in West Michigan.

Where Can I Hear Christmas Music on the Radio in Grand Rapids, Michigan?

100.5 The River, West Michigan's original Christmas Station, has made the annual music flip to 24/7 Christmas music.

The switch to programming took place in the VERY Christmas-ified River studio in downtown Grand Rapids with morning show host Andy Rent.

Christmas music will continue on The River with your friends Andy Rent, Brandi, Rick Knight, and Eric through the Christmas season.

What was the first Christmas Music Station in Grand Rapids?

100.5 The River was one of the first radio stations in the entire country to flip to all Christmas programming back in 2000.

The station has played Christmas music exclusively during the holiday season ever since. Well, except when they took a two-year break hiatus back in 2007 & 2008. In those years, sister station WLHT (Mix 95.7) played the Christmas music.
