FROM THE SALEM MEDIA: It’s with great sadness that Salem Music Network reports the passing of a dear friend and longtime radio warrior – Wade (McShane) Schoenemann, after a year-long battle with cancer. Wade is now fully healed and DJing with Jesus as we speak. Wade served our network diligently and with great heart for 28 years. He was more than a co-worker; he was a dear friend and will be deeply missed. We covet your prayers for Wade’s wife Rachelle, and their four children. We know that we WILL see him again.

In addition to prayer support, if you would like to support their family in this very difficult time, donations can be made to the family’s Venmo account: @rachelle-schoenemann
