Imagine replacing your 100-watt light bulb with a 250-watt one. The room suddenly becomes brighter. That’s the idea behind replacing TWR’s two 100,000-watt shortwave transmitters with two 250,000-watt transmitters. The signal will be stronger and the message will be clear. People throughout China and eastern Asia will be able to hear God’s Word better.
To celebrate this monumental event, TWR President Lauren Libby and radio host Scott Hollinger will present an on-air dedication of these two new transmitters during a live broadcast Friday morning, November 18th at 8:30–9:00 AM Eastern Standard Time. The 30-minute broadcast will begin at 1330 UTC on a shortwave frequency of 15.4 megahertz in the 19 meter band.
Special guests for the broadcast include Dr. Alan Cureton, president of Northwestern College in St. Paul, Minn.; Collin Lambert, vice president of Moody Radio in Chicago, Ill.; and Mike Tirone, general manager and senior vice president of KCBI in Dallas, Texas. These three organizations, plus thousands of individuals around the globe, helped with the purchase and installation of these transmitters.
“As Moody Radio continues to expand its global focus, TWR is one of the leading organizations that we are pleased to partner with. Our joint efforts tied to the new transmitter in Guam have not only broadened our participation in spreading the gospel throughout the world, but also allowed us to inform and mobilize our listeners in the process,” says Collin Lambert, vice president of Moody Radio in Chicago.
In addition to it being streamed live over mms://east.streamguys.com/twr,(not active until the day and time of the event), the dedication will be carried on KTIS-AM, Moody Radio, and KCBI and its sister stations.
