Update: God has led Matt Deane to us as our new Program Director here at Life 101.9. Thank you for you all your prayers!
This month, I want to take you behind the scenes on our search for a new Program Director. It’s been a little over a month now since our former Program Director and Morning Show co-host Bryon Mengle left Life 101.9 to follow a call into pastoral ministry.
You probably knew Bryon best because of his work on the Morning Show. But the work he did as our Program Director was his most important role here at the station. We’ve had several Program Directors here over the past 15 years, and each one helped to shape the sound of the station in significant ways.
Now we are looking for a new person to fill this very important role. The Program Director is the person on the staff who leads and coaches the rest of the on-air staff, selects the songs that you hear, and in general shapes the overall sound of the station in all aspects. In addition, this person will also host a daily on-air shift.
So as you can imagine, it’s very important that we find the right person. We don’t want to rush this process, but we do hope to come to a decision soon. Fortunately, we’ve had several excellent candidates apply for the job, and we are working through the process of getting to know them better and what they would bring to this station.
Please pray with us for the next several weeks that God will guide us to the right person. This person will be key to helping Life 101.9 continue to fulfill our mission…to lead people to Christ and to help believers grow in their faith. Thank you for standing with us in prayer!
