WDYN Radio Holds Thanksgiving-Christmas Share-A-Thon

Monday, December 02, 2013

WDYN Radio began broadcasting in 1968 with a listener-supported Christian Radio format.  Today the 45-year tradition and ministry continues to broadcast daily.

WDYN has experienced a number of changes through the years, and most recently the broadcast studios were relocated from the campus of Tennessee Temple University to the radio tower site at 109 Ellis Road in Rossville.   

WDYN Radio will hold their Thanksgiving-Christmas Share-A-Thon on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for the purpose of raising funds for the next six months of broadcasting.  During the Share-A-Thon, they will also host an open house for all of their listeners, supporters, friends, local government officials, and for the general public.  WDYN invites everyone to tour the new WDYN Studios and meet radio personalities, the staff and volunteers.  They will have a cup of hot or cold apple cider.  A gift of The Carolina Boys new recording, "Quartet Christmas" will be sent to each contributor to the Share-A-Thon.

 

Officials said, “We pray regularly for our public officials at all levels of government, we pray for our listeners, and specifically for those who let their needs be known.  We greet our first responders on the street with words of support, and we let them know we pray for them.  Our mission is to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the greater Chattanooga area, and around the world through the Internet.  We stand for God and country.”

General Manager Tom Sneed, broadcasters Earl Freudenberg and Tom Hammett, along with Charlie Nicholson, Barbara Evans, and volunteers look forward to meeting many visitors during the Thanksgiving-Christmas Share-A-Thon and Open House.
