Salem Radio Network’s twin 24/7 national news services—SRN News and TOWNHALL News—presented a 5-part series profiling Colorado Christian University and its new president Eric Hogue. In and of itself that series wasn’t all that unique…until you learn that President Hogue spend many years as a Salem talk show host, anchoring news/talk programming at KTKZ/Sacramento.

Tom Tradup, VP/News & Talk Programming for SRN, observes: “In a tumultuous time for Christ-centered education in America, we wanted to highlight President Hogue…a Salem alum and ordained minister whose communication skills and passion for the Lord are unequalled.  He is a gifted orator who reflects a Christian worldview that will electrify the campus in suburban Denver.”
