SRN Coverage Of Billy Graham Passing

The Salem Radio Network is providing day-long coverage of this morning’s passing of Dr. Billy Graham at age 99 .

SRN’s vp/News & Talk Programming Tom Tradup (seen below on a California movie set which recreated Dr. Graham’s historic 1949 “tent crusade” in Los Angeles) tells HisAir.Net that both SRN News and TOWNHALL News are providing Special Reports hourly…audio obituaries and perspective on Dr. Graham’s life…and other special programming. In addition, SRN News White House correspondent Greg Clugston has been dispatched to North Carolina where he will get local perspective as well as set the stage for the Memorial Service being organized by the Billy Graham Evangelical Association. Initial word is that President Trump is likely to attend, given his friendship with Dr. Graham whose counsel to U.S. presidents dates back to the administration of Harry Truman.

“We are saddened at Dr. Graham’s passing,” Tradup says, adding: “But as Christians we rejoice in his life and know he is seeing the glory of Heaven today.”
