STEPHENS MEDIA GROUP Christian KXOJ (100.9) / TULSA had its BOSTON tribute video featured on ESPN during the RED SOX/ROYALS game on Saturday. The montage that KXOJ PD/BOB THORNTON created as a remembrance of the tragedy that occurred during the BOSTON MARATHON was played on ESPN going into one of the breaks between innings.
As the indelible images roll from that fateful afternoon, SPARROW recording artist NICHOLE NORDEMAN sings "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus (Look Up)", a poignant reminder of the source of our hope.
PD/BOB THORNTON tells ALL ACCESS, "JEAN FISHER, our brand new Imaging Dir. (it's his first week!) and I were talking about the rough week and how perfect the new NICHOLE NORDEMAN song was for the situation, so he jumped on it and within a few hours we had it finished. I'm not sure the production is anything spectacular but just the message of turning your eyes upon Jesus at the end of such a hard week -- that message just cut through. NICHOLE lives here in TULSA so I was able to share it with her and get her input as we made the piece -- she loved it."
