CCM Sunday On Sunny 92.3 Is Signing Off

Monday, October 16, 2017
For just over 24 years CCM Sunday has been the home for the Best Christian Music in the Tennessee Valley area, but on Oct. 29 it will sign off the air for the last time. 

DMI Concerts (Dove Ministries, Inc) began producing CCM Sunday on June 20, 1993.  CCM Sunday was an all day, every Sunday program and was hosted in those days by Roy McCollum, Bobby Daniels, James Howard, Jason McKay, Rhonda Miskowski and Matt Stockman.   "It was the radio arm of our concert ministry," said Alan Knowles, president of DMI Concerts.

CCM Sunday began with a simple mission: to create an on-air home for Contemporary Christian Music in the Chattanooga area and to build His kingdom.

In April of 1998, CCM Sunday began its near 20 year run on Sunny 92.3 (WDEF, Chattanooga) with Bobby Daniels as host. "Bobby quickly became part of the family here on South Broad Street,' said Danny Howard, station manager and director of programming for WDEF Radio. "Through the years Bobby Daniels has been employed by Sunny 92.3 handling on-air and behind the scenes duties and will continue to be a part of our group of talented personalities." 

On Sunday morning, Oct. 29, from 6-10 a.m., CCM Sunday - with Bobby Daniels as host as he has been from the very beginning - along with former hosts, will say goodbye. 

"It’s mission accomplished," said Bobby. "Today in this market, there are at least six outlets for this style of music, and His kingdom footprint is larger now that it has ever been."

 Listeners are invited to call 451-6760 or email a greeting to bdaniels@wdefradio.com. Comments will be aired during the final broadcast.

Roy Exum: Always Know The Facts

I adore the fact so many of America’s high school and college students are very active in our battle against violence in our schools but bemoan the fact that when you combine youth and ‘lack of experience’ they often are misguided and ill-informed. The best example came on Saturday when a reporter for Campus Reform walked around the Cal State-Santa Barbara campus asking the students ... (click for more)
