Faith-Based Radio Expands Channel Line-Up

FamilyNet Radio announced Thursday that it is featuring two new ministries on its growing line up. PowerPoint Ministries and Focus on the Family, with its award-winning talk show, can now be heard daily on SIRIUS Channel 159.

Both organizations feature prominent speakers who are being broadcasted on the faith-based satellite radio channel that already includes Jay Sekulow Live!, Hope for the Heart with June Hunt, Way of the Master with Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort at Home, among others.

Focus on the Family was named the "Best Radio Talk Show" for 2006 at the annual National Religious Broadcasters convention in February. The daily broadcast features Dr. James Dobson, founder and chairman of Focus on the Family, who is heard by more than 220 million people every day. Dobson's commentaries are broadcasted on over 3,000 radio facilities in North America as well as an estimated 4,130 additional facilities in over 160 other countries.

The Colorado Springs, Colo.-based organization that had begun with a 25-minute weekly program heard on only a few dozen stations has become international with more than 74 different ministries.

The eleven-year-old PowerPoint Ministries, meanwhile, is a radio and television broadcast that offers biblical steps on successful Christian living. Led by Dr. Jack Graham, pastor of the 24,000-member Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas, the ministry currently reaches 250,000 people each week in 29 cities and 17 states in the United States and 70 countries.

FamilyNet Radio is the voice of Christian Talk on SIRIUS Satellite Radio Channel 159. FamilyNet airs family-friendly, faith-based entertainment from the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention.

SIRIUS Satellite Radio delivers more than 120 channels of commercial-free
music, talk shows, news and information, and extensive sports programming to listeners across the country in digital quality sound. Now with more than three million subscribers, SIRIUS is on pace to reach six million by the end of 2006.
