The TWR offices in Cary, N.C. were forced to close Friday 12/22 due to a fire of undetermined origin. The fire started on the loading dock and thanks to quick response by  area fire departments, it was quickly extinguished. Damage was mostly contained to the loading dock and adjacent area, with smoke damage throughout much of the building. No one was injured, and nobody was occupying the building at the time. 

SOS Radio/Las Vegas hosted a special Christmas party for children with incarcerated parents in Las Vegas. It was a partnership with an organization called HopeForPrisoners.org which helps men & women coming out of prison re-enter society. The stats show children with incarcerated parents have a higher probability of going to prison themselves unless there’s intervention in that family cycle.

The Hope for Prisoners Christmas party gave 20 different families a personal living room Christmas experience complete with gifts, stockings and a catered meal by Las Vegas chefs! The team decorated Nevada Department of Corrections Casa Grande Prison Center with 20 individual living room settings. Each family had a personal living room experience set up with couches next to a coffee table with Christmas treats, and a fresh cut decorated Christmas tree. (Walker Furniture made the living room settings possible) Many of the inmates had the opportunity to surprise their children in person at the party and share hugs and gifts! Here’s a few of the powerful pictures!


A local Peoria, IL newspaper featured Christian Radio stations in a story about Christmas programming. Check out the story here.
