Bott Radio Network to focus on MBC’s annual meeting
Broadcasts may go worldwide
September 28, 2004
JEFFERSON CITY – When the 170th annual meeting of the Missouri Baptist Convention (MBC) is held Oct. 25-27 at First Baptist Church, Raytown, interviews with MBC leaders and program personalities may be heard around the world as the Bott Radio Network broadcasts from the annual meeting via “streaming audio” on the network’s Internet site, www.bottradionetwork.com.
Tentative plans call for Bott broadcasts to originate from the atrium of the church, which will serve as this year’s convention exhibit hall. If Bott receives permission from the MBC Executive Board’s administrative committee when it meets in early October, it will mark the second straight year Bott has broadcast from the MBC’s annual meeting.
In addition, the interviews will be heard on all 18 Bott Network stations in 15 markets nationwide. Ten of Bott’s stations are in Missouri. The interviews will be broadcast from 2-3 p.m., each day of the convention.
Harold Hendrick, whose “Encounter” broadcasts are heard every Tuesday and Thursday afternoons on KSIV-AM, a Bott station in St. Louis, and Eben Fowler, a Bott radio personality based in Kansas City, will conduct the interviews. Hendrick is a member of First Baptist Church, Ferguson. In recent weeks MBC Executive Director David Clippard, Associate Executive Director Kenny Qualls, Pathway Editor Don Hinkle and Men’s Ministry Coordinator Danny Decker have all been guests on Hendrick’s program.
Bott stations provide Christian programming 24 hours a day in markets stretching from Ft. Wayne, Ind. to Fresno/Modesto, Calif. Richard (Dick) P. Bott, founder, president and chief executive officer of Bott, received the MBC Christian Life Commission’s Distinguished Service Award at the MBC 2003 meeting in St. Louis.
