Brian Whitscell has wrapped up a Midwest Radio Tour that brought More Jesus to stations in Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Wisconsin.
Brian was joined by the More Jesus Movement’s radio promoter, Wendell Gafford, of Creative Promotions. It was a great road trip and it was very exciting to see how excited these radio programmers were about the ministry and move of God that is More Jesus.
The tour began in Zeeland, MI (south of Grand Rapids) on Wednesday (9/12) morning where Brian was a guest on the morning show with Perry LeHaie and Scott Curtis on WGNB/Moody Radio West Michigan. The next stop was in Port Huron, MI and a visit to WNFR. Music Director and Afternoon Drive Host Ellyn Davey recorded an interview with Brian that she would use on her show later in the week.
Thursday (9/13) morning, the radio tour brought Brian and Wendell to WFRN, a key AC reporter in Elkhart, IN. This is the flagship station of a network that reaches from Kalamazoo, MI south to Kokomo, IN. Brian was a special guest on the morning show with Doug and Vincy. Wendell and Brian also met with WFRN General Manager Ed Moore about the possibility of partnering with the network to bring the More Jesus Movement to their listening area. The next stop on the radio tour was Chicago and the Moody Broadcasting Network. While there, Brian and Wendell had lunch with Denny Nugent, the networks’ National Program Director and Denise Pagano, National Music Assistant. The day ended with a visit to the home of Joe Buchanan, Music Director of the Family Friendly AC radio network.
