KSBJ Launches Mentoring Program to Aid Christian Stations Around the Globe

HOUSTON (July 11, 2012) – Contemporary Christian music station, KSBJ, announces the launch of its Mentoring Program. Under the leadership of Jon Hull, senior director of outreach, the Mentoring Program is designed to provide Christian music stations with strategic planning and guidance as they strive to improve broadcasting efforts and positively impact lives within their community. Leveraging KSBJ’s best practices spanning three decades, participants receive guidance from KSBJ staff members in all areas of broadcasting including programming, development, community outreach and more.

“We are blessed to have this opportunity to serve others in the Christian music industry,” said Hull. “We see the Mentoring Program as a great way to raise the level of service from Christian music stations while spreading the word of God.”

The Mentoring Program has seen early successes with Hull and his team providing education to stations across the globe in locations such as Slovakia, Georgia, Arkansas, Indonesia, Kansas, Romania, South Sudan and England.

“Everyone on the mentoring team at KSBJ made my staff feel welcome from the moment we began the program. We were impressed by the company culture,” said Sean Sawatzy, general manager of KLRC, a Christian station in Arkansas. “KSBJ is an example of how to grow your brand while maintaining your strong Christian messaging.”

As Houston’s leading independent non-profit, noncommercial, contemporary Christian radio station, KSBJ is able to guide other stations based on their proven work environment. For the past three years, KSBJ has been recognized as Best Christian Workplace and also Radio Station of the Year.
