Today was Dan Craig’s last day at Moody Radio/Chicago where he has served as manager of programming the past 13 years. Craig announced his retirement earlier this year.

“I have never felt worthy to hold this position,” said Craig, “however, I know without a shadow of a doubt that the Lord orchestrated my coming and guided my steps every day. It has been a thrill to watch Him work through our team and, using divine appointments, He spoke to hundreds of thousands of listeners each day.”

Some of the comments today on Craig’s career include:
“Honoring a faithful, God fearing man who has dedicated over four decades of his life to radio. He is a mentor, sounding board, and friend. You and your puns will be missed!”

“What made Dan special? It was the little things. The things done when no one was watching. And the things done when everyone was watching.”

“An idea man, an indefatigable worker, lover of radio, and of God’s Word.”
