The MOODY RADIO staff's heart is amazing and I can't wait to serve with everyone in reaching our community for CHRIST in new and exciting ways. It is quite an honor to be joining such a legacy in not only CHICAGO, but Christian radio as a whole."
In addition to managing the station, MCNEILLY will serve as a spokesperson for MOODY RADIO, cultivating relationships with listeners, pastors and community leaders in an effort to enhance the station's visibility in CHICAGO.
