Former KKSP/Little Rock (93.3 The Fish) PD Steve Marston has returned to the station to host mornings 6-10am. Steve exited the station in August 2019 when his PD position was eliminated. At that station the station added syndicated Keven & Taylor to morning drive. Steve told HisAir today, “After some other changes, the company invited me back to do mornings. I’m thrilled to be back at the station I helped launch in 2014. It’s a wonderful blessing, because as we all know in this industry, you don’t usually get to come back.”
In the summer of 2018, WBCL/Ft Wayne listeners raised $70,000 to build a home for orphaned and vulnerable children in Mutoko, Zimbabwe. The home has now been built and 4 children and a married couple as caregivers are currently living there, and they are waiting for 5 more children to be placed soon by the social workers.
The video shows the home and the children already placed in it. Living in a home like this with a small group of children and house parents allows these kids to grow up in a Christian family-like atmosphere. It gives them a more normal upbringing than living in a traditional orphanage with many children housed together. Watch video HERE.
December PPM numbers are all in and posted HERE. Christian Radio Ratings are sponsored by ShareMedia Services. Look for Holiday PPM’s to arrive 1/22.
