As reported on HisAir yesterday  Salem Media Group announced that it entered into an agreement to sell its contemporary Christian music stations in Nashville and Honolulu to Educational Media Foundation (EMF).

Salem’s Today’s Christian Music (TCM) network is not affected by these sales.

Today Salem Media CEO David Santrella stated, “Salem remains steadfast in our commitment to paying down debt and reducing our overall leverage. The sale of these radio stations helps achieve those goals. At the same time, we are focused on the stations staying in mission format. We are happy to be working with our good friends at EMF to continue impacting lives through music. We are grateful for our staff at these stations that have worked tirelessly over the years.”

Santrella continued, “With this change, Mike Blakemore, Salem’s VP of CCM Programming, will provide focus and leadership to programming TCM, which remains an important part of Salem’s content offerings.”

WGTS/Wash DC has teamed up with National Community Church Pastor Mark Batterson to invite listeners to experience Jesus anew this Easter. The station produced an eight-part video series with Batterson entitled “Road to Resurrection.”  Listeners sign up by texting the word “Easter” to the WGTS studio line at 800-700-1094.  Each day of Holy Week, through Resurrection Sunday, listeners will receive a video from Pastor Batterson describing the significance of that day and what Jesus was experiencing. 

 “For many people, even Christians, Easter is just a day for a good meal and maybe an Easter egg hunt,” says WGTS director of videography Victor Muzica. “We wanted to invite listeners to hear the resurrection story with a fresh perspective, and to reconsider the gift that Jesus offers all of us. Even people who have believed most of their lives can use a reminder of the power of the Easter story.”
