1. Personally how do you keep the ministry in the “business”? 

Well we are a brand new radio station so we are just starting in the business so for now we are receiving support from the church but we are able to have commercials and advertisements.


2. Overall, how is Christian radio different today, from 5 years ago?

Now we have more facilities to have a radio station. The costs are cheaper than 5 years ago overall in internet radio. The cost came down so if you want to open your radio station on internet you can find very good prices with different servers.


3. What do you think are the main characteristics of today’s Christian radio PD?

Well now most of the Christian radio stations are more professional than before. Maybe we look like a main radio station because our quality is getting better. We are working to have good production and professional broadcasters.


4. What criteria do you require for a song to be played on your station?

First of all the lyrics and secondly the music quality.


5. What kind of promotions work best for Christian radio?

I think the best for the radio is getting promotions in churches, sellt-shirts, and promote concerts.


6. How do you think Christian Record labels can better serve Christian radio?

Responding quickly to our emails and responding to our questions and being more able to help us.


7. In your opinion what are the biggest obstacles facing Christian internet station?

Our limits are access to internet!  As of today it's the only way to hear an internet radio station on your car or your walkman. But we believe in 10 years that internet radio will be more available to our listeners and maybe access will be free to everyone.


8. What do you believe is the primary role of the Christian radio air personality?

Have a good and fresh message and great productions and hear the suggestions of the listeners.


9. What (if any) Christian radio stations do you consider as innovators today?

For me RADIO U  is one of the innovators.


10. Where do you see Christian radio in 5 years?  (specifically internet radio)

Well our goal is getting better everyday and in less of 5 years have our own signal in FM.
