Rick McConnell’s Monumental Studios has produced a feature that they are releasing to Christian Radio Stations. It allows an insightful and creative way to address the war, AND the hope that Christian radio offers in situations like this.  There is no charge for the spot. However, please contact Rick McConnell to make sure it is cleared to run in your area. (rickmcconnell777@gmail.com)

89.9 The Light/Melbourne evening hosts Euan & Gianna add a Saturday morning 6-10 am show starting tomorrow.

Christian Radio host Brant Hansen’s new book “The Men We Need” will be released next week. Brant will do a Facebook Live release party next week. 

The book uses short chapters loaded with must-have wisdom and Brant’s signature humor. The Men We Need addresses: The world needs real men, real bad. And there are all sorts of conflicting ideas and messages about what a “real man” is (and is not). Is a real man one who hunts, loves sports, grills meat, fixes cars, and climbs mountains? Sure, sometimes. But that’s not really the point of being a man and it’s not the purpose for which men were made.  Order an advance copy from Amazon HERE.

All this month, SRN hosts Larry Elder, Sebastian Gorka and others have been appealing for donations to the non-profit Food For The Poor which provides food, water and medical supplies to 17 Caribbean and Latin American countries…but which has no “footprint” in Eastern Europe. But behind the scenes, FFTP was reaching out to create a strategic alliance with the non-profit Feed My Starving Children which has had staff on the ground in Ukraine for the past 8 years.  So effective TODAY (Monday, March 21st) SRN hosts will generate donations to rush food, clean water and other relief supplies to over 3 million Ukrainian refugees.

SRN host MIKE GALLAGHER applauded the new alliance: “It took some diplomatic maneuvering between these two awesome charities to combine forces in order to rush emergency relief to the children and families of war torn Ukraine. All of us at SRN are proud to play a role in this unique campaign, and we’ll be urging our listeners to open their hearts—and their wallets—in the exciting days ahead.”

The network’s twin 24/7 news services—SRN News and Townhall News —will also highlight the emergency Ukraine Relief effort. 

KBNJ/Corpus Christi held its Sharathon Fundraiser earlier this month. The goal was to hit $95,000 in three days… And they did it in two days!. KBNJ Afternoon Host Juan Carlos Reyes says, “It’s the second straight Sharathon we met our goal by the third day, but this is the fastest we’ve ever done it.”
