In Memoriam


This year the Christian Radio & Records community lost many who were promoted to glory. As 2021 draws to a close, please join HisAir in remembering each of these men and women and their lives.  

Lets give thanks for their commitment to the Christian Radio & Records industry. May they remind you of the vast, magnificent work God has done, is doing, and will continue to do through the lives of those who choose to follow him.
