Salem Expands Keep The Faith

Salem Music Network has moved the “Keep the Faith with Penny” show, to evenings (7-mid CT) on the Today’s Christian Music network and in multiple markets including WFFH/Nashville, KKSP/Little Rock, KBIQ/Colorado Springs and coming soon to overnights on KLTY/Dallas.

The show is built around Penny and her storytelling and interacting with listeners. It began on WFSH/Atlanta (104.7 The Fish) and expanded nationwide as a late-night program three years ago. In its new time slot the show airs on 125 stations and growing.

Salem VP of CCM Programming Mike Blakemore commented, “In Atlanta ‘Keep the Faith with Penny’ has been a consistent ratings performer. The show delivers rich content you can’t find anywhere else in the CCM format, including stories, listener calls, and encouraging thoughts with notable personalities all delivered with high production value.”

BigOyo President David Sams stated, “When John Frost, Joe Battaglia and I became acquainted with Penny’s show in Atlanta we immediately knew combining her talent and the Keep the Faith content would make for a one-of-a-kind show. The ratings success has proven that. Now, we’re excited to join with Salem Music Network in moving the nationwide version of the show to evenings in many markets.”

Jeremy Sweat, Salem Music Network Program Director, noted, “This is yet another quality show birthed out of The Fish Atlanta to be delivered via the Today’s Christian Music network following on the heels of the successful nationwide launch of the ‘Kevin and Taylor in the Morning’ show which is now heard on over 98 stations.”
