Billy Graham Radio Programs To Air On FamilyNet
January 5, 2009 at 11:01 AM (PT)
The weekly "BILLY GRAHAM Classics" radio program featuring sermons by the world-famous evangelist will air each SUNDAY from 8 to 9p (ET) on FAMILYNET RADIO SIRIUS Channel 161. The program began airing yesterday (1/4). The 60-minute program will also include updates on new projects of the BILLY GRAHAM EVANGELISTIC ASSOCIATION (BGEA).
Starting in APRIL 2009, a new radio program, "BILLY GRAHAM Presents an Evening at THE COVE" will run daily MONDAY through FRIDAY from 7 to 8p (ET). This program will feature leading Bible teachers from the BILLY GRAHAM TRAINING CENTER at THE COVE in ASHEVILLE, NC, excerpts from classic BILLY GRAHAM or FRANKLIN GRAHAM sermons and an update on current BGEA ministry outreach.
"We are thrilled to work with such a committed, faithful organization in FAMILYNET," said BGEA Director of Radio JIM KIRKLAND. "Given that BILLY GRAHAM has always made a commitment to preach the gospel of JESUS CHRIST by 'every effective means available,' reaching the growing audience of satellite radio was a perfect fit."
The 2009 venture will not be the first time that FAMILY NET and BGEA have joined together in a programming venture. On NOVEMBER 7, 2008, in honor of BILLY GRAHAM's 90th birthday, FAMILYNET broadcast live from BGEA headquarters in CHARLOTTE, NC.
