Veteran Christian broadcaster Bill Maier has joined the program “Core Christianity” as co-host. Maier is teamed with Adriel Sanchez on the daily 25:00 Bible Q&A format. During his time at Focus on the Family, Bill hosted the Weekend Magazine program, the Family Minute with Dr. Bill Maier, and the Family Insights TV news feature. More recently, Bill hosted the morning show at KSBJ Radio in Houston and The Faith Radio Network in Minneapolis. He currently hosts the overnight program on the Moody Radio Network and on Moody’s Praise and Worship Channel.

WIND/Chicago (AM 560 The Answer) morning co-host Amy Jacobson has been allowed back in Illinois Gov J.B. Pritzker press briefings. Salem Media filed a federal lawsuit against the Governor and his press secretary after Jacobson was banned.

Last month Jacobson broke news that Pritzker’s family had traveled to their equestrian estate in Wisconsin amid Illinois’ stay-at-home order — weeks after it was reported that his family was at another estate in Florida. The news raised questions about why the stay-at-home order did not apply to the governor’s family.

On the day of the governor’s next press briefing, Pritzker’s press secretary told Jacobson she was banned from the briefings because she had attended a rally advocating for Illinois to end its lockdown. When questioned by reporters about Jacobson’s exclusion the next day, Pritzker told the press corps that Jacobson could not attend because advocating for Illinois to end its stay-at-home order represents an “extreme position.” The governor went on to say: “That is not a reporter … once upon a time she was a reporter, but she proved that she is no longer a reporter.”

KSBJ/Houston met its Sharathon goal of $253,000 dollars per month last week. 

KLOVE kicks off its Spring Pledge Drive today.
