There are times in history when God, in His providence, allows people to see in full view the pivoting of history. Patriots assembling in Philadelphia experienced it on July 4, 1776. Navy sailors looking to the westward skies saw it on December 7, 1941. Families listening to their radios heard it on November 22, 1963.
In an instant – the signing of a document, the dropping of a bomb or the firing of a gun – the world suddenly and irreversibly changes. Yet no event in American history quite compares to the morning of September 11, 2001.
Buildings that scraped the floors of heaven crumbled. Planes carrying businessmen, grandmothers, and children plummeted. For thousands, life and all its promises and possibilities ended – some in an instant, others while saving strangers, running up stairs or storming cockpits. more >>

Two weeks after the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright announced his resignation from the organization, effective Oct. 4, some members remain surprised by the abrupt nature of his decision.
In his resignation letter to NRB Board Chairman, Richard P. Bott II, which was made public on March 21, Wright noted that the decision was a prayerful one. It appears, however, that the rumination on his exit from the NRB was kept mostly between him and God, until recently.
"I have prayerfully concluded that my season of service at NRB is drawing to a close," Wright wrote in a letter to Bott. "Accordingly, I do hereby resign my position as president and CEO of NRB, effective October 4, 2013." more >>
National Religious Broadcasters President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright announced that he will be stepping down from his position in October, completing a decade of service for the Christian association.

NASHVILLE – Former Arkansas Governor and 2008 presidential candidate Mike Huckabee sat down in an exclusive interview with The Christian Post prior to him being honored with the NRB Board of Directors award on the final evening of the National Religious Broadcasters convention.
Huckabee, now a talk radio and television host for Fox News, has staked out a successful career as a political analyst and media personality that began in 2009. However, prior to his career in politics, he was employed in the Christian communications industry while also serving as a Baptist minister.
The Christian Post asked him about his career in communications, politics and the church, as well as his opinion on major issues facing the nation, such as immigration, the bitter political partisanship in Washington, and the relationship between morality and freedom. more >>
NASHVILLE – Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee was one of several prominent leaders in broadcasting that received awards during the last night of the annual National Religious Broadcasters convention. The weekend show host for Fox News Channel won the NRB Board of Directors Award during the awards dinner Tuesday.
"I'm honored and I just want to be a little salt and light in a world full of decay and darkness, and that's what you all do every day," said Huckabee upon receiving the award.
The NRB Board of Directors Award honors a Christian who demonstrates integrity, displays creativity and makes a significant impact on society. In recognition that broadcasting is not the only way to witness to the power of the Gospel, the award recipient may or may not be in the field of electronic communications. more >>
