Christian Rock syndicated program The RockDown Show with Dustin Tatro will end production for the foreseeable future following this week  broadcast. The rockDown Show was launched in Nov 2020. The show aired on nearly 200 stations including secular rock stations and many international affiliates.

Show host & creator Dustin Tatro tells HisAir today, “Sometimes, great things come to an end – or go on an extended hiatus, however you want to look at it. Sometimes, callings change. I have been SWAMPED with a promotion to Operations Manager of six different secular stations here in my home market, with local ministry also beginning to demand more involvement.”

In a year where we’re all concerned about inflation, WWIL/Wilmington, NC (Life 90.5) believes God has big plans for 2022. 

Manager Matt Wall said, “The whole team is pulling in the same direction thanks to the help of Vidare Creative. For the Spring 2022 fundraiser, we set the largest goal in the history of the station…23% larger.  And we exceeded that goal by 22%. We are humbled and thankful! The whole staff worked hard as always, but we’re having more fun now.”

“We’re thrilled and proud to partner with our friends at Life 90.5 and Carolina Christian Radio. Many stations talk about engaging with their audience, but Life 90.5 obviously does it well,” said Dave Kirby from Vidare Creative.
