ISHINE and BEMA MEDIA announced the launch of its first syndicated radio program called RADIO ISHINE. The program is set to launch later this SPRING. The show will be co-produced by ISHINE Founder/Chief Creative Officer ROBERT BEESON, THE PASSION GROUP's RICK WELKE and former RADIO DISNEYs Founder/Executive Producer ROBIN JONES.
The show will be geared toward the younger-teen audience (tween) and will feature a youthful sounding and also include many top Christian radio hits familiar to the family. The two-hour program will be hosted by a teenager, MADI, bringing ISHINE's desire to “have kids minister to kids."
“RADIO ISHINE represents well the heart of our mission and vision for reaching kids. ISHINE as a company is all about reaching pre-teens and tweens with a message of identity and purpose being found in Jesus Christ. RADIO ISHINE is the next stage of focus for us as ministry and we believe will engage the hundreds of thousands of ISHINE KNECT TV fans who have been requesting a radio program option. We’re excited and hopeful to see how God will work in the lives of our youth through these efforts," said BEMA MEDIA/ISHINE LIVE President BRAD MATHIAS.
"RADIO ISHINE will offer a younger generation their style of radio without sacrificing some of the top hits you already hear on your local station. It's meant to be thought-provoking, for the core listener and their parents, while being fun, energetic and still be ministry-driven. RADIO ISHINE is a show that is long overdue for the next generation of radio listeners," said Producer WELKE.
Terrestrial and Internet radio stations will carry the show in the coming weeks. For more information on adding RADIO ISHINE, contact RICK WELKE at firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about the show can be found here.
