Christmas came three days early for a KKSP/Little Rock (93.3 The Fish) listener who won a year’s worth of mortgage payments in the Christmas Mortgage Miracle nationwide sweepstakes. Skylar Oswalt of Benton, Arkansas was randomly chosen from more than 1 million entries and will have her mortgage paid for all of 2022. Representatives from Salem Media Group delivered a check to Skylar on Wednesday afternoon, just hours after Steve Marston, host of Mornings with Steve on 93.3 The Fish, had notified her in a telephone call that she had won.
The Christmas Mortgage Miracle sweepstakes was promoted in Central Arkansas by Salem Media Group and was sponsored locally by Sax Homes. Salem Media Group owns four radio stations in central Arkansas: The Fish- KKSP 93.3 FM, Faith Talk-KDIS 99.5 FM, The Answer KDXE 101.1 FM, Rejoice- KZTS 103.3 FM & 105.5 FM. Each station promoted the sweepstakes on air and through their websites, social channels, e-mail and mobile app notifications.

WTSK/Tuscaloosa (Praise 93.3) collected more than1,200 pounds of food in its Christmas food drive. In addition a portion of the drive gathered essential items needed for Kentucky tornado recovery.
WTSK morning personality Brother J says, “I am just so excited we’re still doing this great service after 56 years,” said Brother J. “We are using this Heritage station to continue a really important tradition and doing for those who are unable to do for themselves.”
Daywind Music Group released 11 full-length projects in 2021 resulting in numerous awards, chart-topping singles, and critical acclaim for its albums, solidifying Daywind’s leading position in Southern Gospel and Bluegrass Gospel music.
Dusty Wells, director of artist and label relations for Daywind, states, “I am so proud of our artists, songwriters, and team, who work closely together to get the music out to a world so desperately needing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and its themes of love, peace, strength, and hope. What they have written, recorded, and shared in concerts and through media breathed life into so many hurting folks during a difficult time in our history. I am humbly amazed at God’s faithfulness and goodness. I cannot wait to see what 2022 will bring.”
