Her interactions with listeners and her on-air partner, Eric Johnson, are fun and encouraging and listeners are delighted.”
“I am blessed and excited to start each day with our listening friends on the morning show with a mix of fun and meaningful conversation that points us to the goodness of God,” said Sylvestre. “What a joy and privilege to join a seasoned radio host like Eric to discuss the issues of the day from a biblical perspective. We also strive to be real about the ups and downs of life in a way the reminds us that we are all in process, but that encourages us to take that next step towards a closer relationship with Christ.”

Co-host Eric Johnson is a veteran in morning radio, having served on air for more than 25 years, eight of those at Moody Radio in South Florida. “I could not be more excited about the knowledge, wisdom and God-honoring presence that Brigitte brings to the morning,” said Johnson. “I have already been greatly blessed from having her join me, and I know our listening friends are feeling the same thing.”
