Family Life Radio (FLR) announced their parent ministry name changed from Family Life Communications to Intentional Life Media (ILM). ILM goes beyond radio to offer a richer and more diverse experience through digital content, music streaming, live events, community service, and more.

FLR was founded in 1966 with humble roots in the basement of their founder, Warren Bolthouse, who had a vision to share the message of Christ through radio. “For over half a century, Family Life Radio has been a trusted voice, a companion in the journey of faith with our listeners. Together, we’ve celebrated triumphs, shared in struggles, and grown in Christ’s love,” Evan Carlson, grandson of Bolthouse, President and CEO of ILM shared.

ILM reflects a commitment to walking alongside their listeners, intentionally, in every step of their faith journey. What won’t change is the name Family Life Radio or their core mission. “We will continue our efforts to guide, inspire, and connect the audience to the unwavering love of Jesus Christ,” Taylor Anderson, Executive Director of Marketing for ILM said.

for KING & COUNTRY, Joel and Luke Smallbone, along with a special appearance from their mother, Helen Smallbone will takeover WayFM on Wednesday, April 24, from 4PM to 6PM CST. During the event, for KING & COUNTRY will host the show and discuss their new movie, “Unsung Hero,” launching in theaters nationwide on Friday, April 26. 

WayFM PD Jeff Evans says, “We are excited to bring our audience exclusive details about the story behind the Unsung Hero movie. The movie drives home the fact that our faith in God and in our family are the two most important things in our lives. That’s the message WayFM is built on, so it was natural to ask Joel and Luke to be a part of WayFM afternoons. We are excited to share about the movie while having some fun getting to know more about the family along the way. The Smallbone family has a legacy of telling people about the goodness of God and we are excited to partner with them to help spread the word about how God worked in their own family.”
