CMB Exec. Dir. MICHELLE YOUNKMAN commented, "CMB's MOMENTUM 2014 is now in the history books as one of the most successful to date. We thank the numerous broadcasters, attendees and sponsors that joined us. It was a record breaking year with attendees from all over the US and nine other countries. We pray that you all walked away encouraged in your role as a Christian communicator, furthering GOD's kingdom through radio."
During YOUNKMANS's CMB Town Hall address, she further informed members and attendees of the growth of Christian music radio, "In 2013, we announced that the research findings from RENAISSANCE COMMUNICATIONS found Christian music radio's weekly cume at 32.1 million. The most up-to-date information we received last week shows us a significant increase to 39.4 million. We applaud you for a job well done."
Also during the town hall meeting, members voted to elect the Medium Market Representative CHRIS LEMKE from WCSG/GRAND RAPIDS, and elected SANDI BROWN from KLJY/ST LOUIS as the At-Large Representative. Both LEMKE and BROWN will serve four year terms on the CMB Board.
