New Life Radio/Odessa, Ukraine GM Daniel Johnson checks in with HisAir. Daniel says, “I am writing to see if it might be of interest to your colleagues doing Christian radio across America to do a story about a Christian radio station that is working on the front lines to unite Russian and Ukrainian Christians, and the Slavic world, while facing the threat of relocating due to the possible incursion of Russian forces into Odessa, from where they operate?

The station is the New Life Radio Satellite Network, originally the pioneer Christian FM, satellite, and internet radio station of Russia. Two years ago NLR was forced to relocate to Odessa due to Kremlin controls over the freedom of religion and the press. It is a unique station, composed of both Russian and Ukrainian citizens, that are working together to proclaim the Gospel across the former Soviet Union during these troubling times.

“Governor DeSantis is well deserving of this honor, and it proves how strong he is in Florida, but also across the country,” said Salem Senior Vice President of Spoken Word, Phil Boyce. “Last year this award was given to Candace Owens, so both honorees are well deserving of the respect and admiration of the Salem audience across the country.”
