BEMA MEDIA expands their successful iSHINE countdown to a two-hour weekly radio show, "The Big 25 On iSHINE Live," which debuts on MARCH 4th, featuring the Top 25 CHRISTIAN pop hits from all across AMERICA, along with artist features and interviews.
Artists that have been featured on the show include TOBYMAC, ANDY MINEO, FOR KING & COUNTRY, THE RUBYZ, LECRAE, MANIC DRIVE, HOLLYN and many more CHRISTIAN pop stars.
“The Big 25” is voiced by ALEXIS SLIFER, making it the only female-hosted CHRISTIAN countdown show in the industry. SLIFER is a former member of tween-pop group THE RUBYZ and recently launched her own solo music career.
BEMA MEDIA and iSHINE LIVE Pres. BRAD MATHIAS commented: “This show has been something iSHINE has desired to produce for a few years now. Offering up an upbeat CHRISTIAN music program for radio stations to add to their lineup that glorifies GOD is a passion of ours – without losing its edge.
"Our hope is that tweens, teens and their parents would receive 'The Big 25 on iSHINE Live' as a place for interaction, music that the whole family can listen to, and solid programming.”
The show will be executive produced by longtime CHRISTIAN music ambassador and former BILLBOARD CHRISTIAN music editor RICK WELKE.
“We've been morphing this show over the past year on RADIO iSHINE into something special, and now believe that it is ready for radio channels all over the country," WELKE said. "It's upbeat, fast-paced, and champions music that CHRISTIAN music lovers are gravitating towards right now, especially with more CHRISTIAN Top 40 pop-focused stations signing on the air recently. Even though it's pointed at a younger demographic, we've already had parents reach out to us and thank us for developing this much-needed music alternative outlet. It's already a hit!”
Radio outlets that wish to carry “The Big 25 on iSHINE Live” or desire to hear a demo of the show can reach out to WELKE directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
