The Brant Hansen Show has been added to WORQ/Green Bay (Q90 FM). The show airs 10:30am – 3pm (12 noon hour is teaching).

WORQ General Manager Andy “Crash” Connell stated, “We carefully listened for months before deciding to integrate the show into our mid-day lineup. We needed to ensure that Brant and Sheri were firmly aligned with our ‘truth at any cost’ mission here at Q90. The timing couldn’t be better for our market and listeners. We hope that our long-time listeners will be enriched by the evident ‘joy’ emanating from their radios during workday hours.”

Family Life Radio/Tucson reports a record breaking spring fundraiser, by meeting and beating the funding need, and reaching 123% of goal.

The FLR on air hosts worked with the team from Vidare Creative: Dave Kirby, John Brock, Bill Scott, and Garrett Michaels. “In these days of rising prices and shrinking budgets, it was amazing to see the outpouring of generosity from FLR listeners. We always say your fundraising is a direct measure of how you have invested in your listeners. It’s obvious FLR takes that seriously,” said Dave Kirby, Chief Creative Officer for Vidare Creative.
