Christian Radio is mourning the loss of one its own with the passing of Travis Culver. Through his battle with cancer over the last year God used Travis in so many ways to impact many in our industry.  Many who only knew him on Facebook were touched deeply by his posts through his trial. His faith and courage were to be admired to the very end. Travis was and is a great inspiration to us all.

Travis was a former KTSY/Boise PD. He left KTSY in 2014 to launch  “Media for the Rest of Us.”

Travis was also a husband and the father of 2 children. Please pray about making a donation to the family to help with financial responsibilities in this trying time.

A Go Fund Me account is set up for donations for the family. Click here.
