MOODY BIBLE INSTITUTE announced the appointment of GREG THORNTON to SVP/Media, effective AUGUST 15th. In this new position, THORNTON will now be responsible for the strategic direction and the coordinated efforts of both MOODY's media ministries, MOODY RADIO and MOODY PUBLISHERS.
"As we move toward the construction of a new global media center enabling increased collaboration of MOODY RADIO and MOODY PUBLISHERS, and as media technologies continue to converge, bringing all media under the leadership of one person is the best strategic decision," said MOODY BIBLE INSTITUTE Pres. Dr. J. PAUL NYQUIST. "GREG's stellar track record in leading MOODY PUBLISHERS, his long history and commitment to MOODY, combined with his godly character, make him the ideal candidate to assume this important role."
"Both MOODY RADIO and MOODY PUBLISHERS have been engaged in an extensive planning process over the last 18 months and we are beginning to see the first fruits of those efforts," said THORNTON. "For example, in radio we've increased our effectiveness in partnering with and ministering to a more diverse audience, while in publishing we've created audience-focused teams that engage readers directly. God has given us dreams for media and I'm humbled to lead our efforts moving forward."
