Pillar Media station WAKW/Cincinnati (Star 93.3)  announces that Jessica Roberts has emerged as the winner of the “7 Days To A More Positive You” contest, sponsored by Dr. Chandra Grupenhof and Elite Audiology. The “7 Days To A More Positive You” contest, organized by STAR 93.3 aims to inspire individuals in the community to listen to STAR 93.3 for just 15 minutes a day for 7 days in 2024 to experience the difference that listening to an uplifting radio station like STAR 93.3 can make.

As the winner of the “7 Days To A More Positive You” contest, Jessica receives a prize of $2024. Jessica plans to use the funds to meet some immediate needs in her family.

Atlantic Gateway Communication’s (AGC) online worship ministry, AllWorship, is turning 20 this month. In 2004, the online ministry launched with three formats: contemporary worship, traditional praise and worship, and Spanish language worship. Additional formats, including instrumental and Christmas worship, were added through the years.

“Twenty years ago, AllWorship looked a lot different than it does today,” says co-founder Therese Romano. “We had three computers in my house to which listeners would connect to enjoy the worship music. Now, 20 years later, AllWorship is under a new ministry umbrella and looks and sounds better than ever. I am so grateful to be a part of the ministry still and am excited to see more and more people listening and sharing worship music worldwide.”

In 2022, Atlantic Gateway Communications purchased AllWorship and hired co-founder Romano to help run it. AGC has plans to create additional formats on AllWorship soon. AGC is also the parent company of WGTS 91.9.

Releasing 3/15, Curb Word artist Big Daddy Weave’s wounds tell the story on rallying cry “Let It Begin.”  Wading into a river of divine healing, the band affirms God never leaves us where we’ve been. The driving anthem overflows with hope, testifying to the current of freedom, restoration and transformation radiating from the only true remedy the collective has ever found — Jesus. Poised to become the group’s next signature hit, “Let It Begin” previews Big Daddy Weave’s highly anticipated forthcoming studio project, due later this year.

“Let It Begin” was written by Emily Weisband and Matt Maher; and produced by Jeremy Redmon and Matt Maher.
