WBNH/Pekin, IL welcomes Janine Fairchild to host middays. WBNH was searching for a female voice to their broadcast team and Janine is an answer to that prayer. WBNH Production Manager  Daniel Cushman says, “We had put this to prayer, desiring to locate someone with Christian broadcasting experience, looking for part-time work, hopefully a resident of the Peoria, IL area.  A few weeks ago, God answered our prayers! We received a call from Janine Fairchild, who was looking for other opportunities in the Lord’s ministry, wanting to follow His will and wondering if there would be any possibilities here. Janine brings 15 years of Christian broadcasting experience with her, along with a teaching background and experience in writing and promotions.  She debuted her new weekday program called Midday Worship on WBNH on Monday, December 7, at 12:00pm.
