Bill Thrasher has exited the GM position Worship Radio Network in Augusta, Maine to become the new GM for KWAVE Las Vegas 98.1 FM. KWAVE is a division of Calvary Chapel Las Vegas. Bill started at KWAVE this week after spending about 31/2 tears at Worship Radio Network.
WAY FM/Denver OM Dan Raymond checks in with HisAir.Net. Dan says, “Becca Guillen— who has been part of the WAY-FM family for almost 5 years- first in our Colorado Springs corporate office; then, orchestrating events, building a multitude of relationships, and serving serving the network and local teams in WAY’s Nashville content hub for a couple years; finally, serving in Denver as our Community Impact Director for the past year— is following God’s path out of radio to a bright new future assisting an area college in their marketing department. Becca’s service to WAY-FM and the CCM community goes deep and wide, and she will be missed.”
89.3 KSBJ/Houston is taking their annual Love That Sticks initiative to new heights with one day dedicated to appreciate US Astronaut, Shane Kimbrough. Long time Christian music fan, Kimbrough, recently celebrated 100 days aboard the International Space Station. To thank him for his service, KSBJ makes it their final Love That Sticks mission on Tuesday, February 28 to send him encouragement – all the way to outer space. The goal of the mission is to shower Shane with Love That Sticks notes from all across the country to show him how much he is loved through social media by posting #WeLoveYouShane.
Recently, Rachelle & Carder from the KSBJ Morning Show had the opportunity to interview Kimbrough while he is still on the ISS. “Talking with Commander Kimbrough while he is in space is one of the coolest things ever. Hearing his passion for God’s people on this planet, and why he does what he does was even better,” said Carder.
