Christian music radio is not dead

We thought radio in general was dying, but it’s not totally dead just yet. While Gospel Music Week no longer exists in Nashville, like it did in the 2000s, Christian Music Daily found out today that about 500 Christian music radio people gather in Orlando once a year at Disney for about $300 a pop, rather than the $1000 or so it would cost them to attend Gospel Music Week “back in the day.”

The get-together is called Momentum 2012, and will be held at the Disney Yacht & Beach Club Resort, September 5-8th. Momentum 2012 begins at 5:30pm on Wednesday September 5th with the Christian Music Broadcasters’ Networking Dinner. At this year’s conference, there will be a variety of speakers, including Eric Rhoads, publisher of Radio Ink; Mark Ramsey, Valerie Geller, Roy Williams, Jim Daly, and Alex Kendrick.

Do you listen to Christian music radio? If so, what do you like about it, and what don’t you like about it? Even though ChristianMusicDaily.com is about Christian music, we don’t listen to Christian music radio. The songs all sound the same to us.

  1. Christian Radio has been a apart of my Christian Walk since 1987. I tuned in and listened to our local Christian Radio station daily for teachings and for contemporary Christian Music. My knowledge of Christ grew through the years, I grew closer to Jesus Christ ! In 2004 God opened a door and lead me to KAJN 102.9fm as a weekend radio announcer! Since then I have become a daily announcer and program director. I have the blessed opportunity to pray with our listeners and for them and witness God’s Hand at answering their prayers. We share God’s Love everyday on air and online! What a blessing it is to be a part of the ministry and see God Glorified!
