Christian Talk//159 now has programming
FamilyNet radio and television programming can now be heard on SIRIUS according to an announcement by SIRIUS and the North American Mission Board, which owns and operates the faith-based broadcast ministry.
"On this new channel, listeners will hear a message of hope and encouragement that's as relevant now as it was at the time of Southern Baptists' initial radio broadcast in 1941," says Martin Coleman, FamilyNet COO. "We're grateful for this opportunity SIRIUS has given us to build upon our rich heritage in radio broadcasting."
Such popular FamilyNet programs as ACLJ This Week with Jay Sekulow, The 700 Club with Pat Robertson, and daily shows At Home -- Live! and Your Health will be heard on the new Christian Talk channel, along with some of the nation's top pastors, including Charles Stanley, Jack Graham, David Jeremiah and Bryant Wright.
In addition, special radio programs such as Way of the Master -- a daily two-hour program featuring actor Kirk Cameron and legendary evangelist Ray Comfort, plus leading evangelical talk personalities such as Dr. Richard Land -- will also be featured.
Christian Talk channel 159 will be the companion to SIRIUS' Christian music programming, which offers three commercial-free channels devoted to Christian Hits (Spirit, channel 66), Christian Rock (Revolution, channel 67) and Gospel (Praise, channel 68).
