Northwestern Media station WNWC/Madison (Life 102.5) began venturing into podcasting several years ago with their own “The Connected Life Book Club,” hosted by Candice Grey and Summer Shepherd (pictured below). Now that Grey has closed the Life 102.5 chapter of her life, Shepherd has been expanding and revamping “The Connected Life Book Club” podcast.

Shepherd says, “As excited as we were to launch the book club initially, we had no idea of just how much it would bless our listeners. We also had no idea the pandemic was coming and that the need for this kind of community would be so keenly felt. A virtual book club allows us the unique opportunity to link together women in friendship who might otherwise be struggling in isolation.”

The book club will be expanding to include listeners from all over the country with the goal of giving women a community to be welcomed into. Each new season of the podcast will feature new co-hosts, including Niki Corbin, Station Manager of Life 97.3 in Duluth, Minnesota. There are currently four seasons available to listen to. Shepherd also hosts her own podcast called “No Seriously…How Do I Do This?” 


NGEN/Houston morning host Marcus Sullivan “Marcus In The Morning” was feeling the weight of 2020 along with his listeners so he began to pray with them on the air. One of his first prayers hit a hundred thousand views on social media no sooner than he posted it. Fox 26 Houston featured Marcus in a “positively Houston” piece.
