At WBGL/Champaign starting Monday Danielle Marie moves to the 9-noon shift. Danielle has co-hosted afternoons on WBGL with Eric Nichols for the last 6 years.

Marie replaces Meridith Foster who comes off the air to focus on podcasts. Nichols stays in PM drive and will go solo.


Tisha Lehfeldt did her last afternoon show yesterday (4/30) at KAIM/Honolulu (95.5 The Fish). Salem sold the station to EMF in the deal that also sent WFFH/Nashville to EMF for a reported $7 mil. 

Tisha joined The Fish Hawaii in April 2014 and has hosted the afternoon show since then.  Please keep Tisha in your prayers as she has been battling cancer the last year.

Last week i58:10 Media facilitated one of its most successful weeks in fundraising, collectively raising over $1,000,000 for 3 of its clients: India Partners on Moody Radio, KTSY/Boise and KSGN/Riverside. Both KTSY’s and KSGN’s strong fundraising campaigns utilized i58:10 Media’s long-standing “DIY Fundraising” model which integrated song stories, where listeners describe how God uses the station in their lives. The $1,000,000+ raised activated over 3,200 listeners who heard the messages of hope and chose to respond with generosity across the three events.

“This is the type of response we get on our knees for,” says Michael Bunday, President of i58:10 Media. “Our prayer, as always, is that as we highlight the work God is doing around the world that listeners would be encouraged in their faith and called by the Spirit to respond. We are thrilled for these ministries and encouraged by the response and generosity of the listeners across the three events.”

WLGT/Washington, NC (My Bridge) has transitioned to “Sozo Radio” starting today. The station says Sozo Radio will be a worship format with music much like you hear in your church on Sunday from many artists you already know and love.

WLGT went on the air November 1st 2012, at 98.3 serving Washington, Greenville, and New Bern, NC areas. In Nov 2022 WLGT moved its frequency from 98.3 to 97.5 and doubled the power. 

CMB will host a fee webinar “All Things Momentum”  on Wednesday, May 8, at 12pm (CT). Momentum 2024 is less than 1 month away. 

GMA Dove Award winner Curb Word artist Natalie Grant is a guest on the latest episode of the podcast, “Love Someone: A Podcast with Delilah,” hosted by love songs queen Delilah.

Grant shares insights into her multifaceted career and passions. From her soaring single “You Will Be Found,” which has not only captivated Christian audiences but has also crossed over to mainstream AC’s Top 20 charts, to her recent collaboration with the legendary Dolly Parton covering Whitney Houston’s “Step By Step,” Grant’s musical journey is nothing short of awe-inspiring. Natalie shares about her new project, “Seasons,” as well.
