Even though I’m a digital native and enjoy visual media, I have a deep love for audio–both radio and podcasting. It could be from my days growing up in a family without a TV. I was glued to the radio, listening to play-by-play of the Chicago Cubs, listening to Old Time Radio classics and to Christian radio. In this case it was Moody Radio Chicago.
Today, I have the wonderful opportunity to talk with a radio broadcast veteran, one of the best voices in Christian media: Bob Lepine. Bob is the Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer at FamilyLife and is the longtime host of their flagship program, FamilyLife Today. He is also the voice of many other radio broadcasts, including Truth for Life with Allistair Begg and Today in the Word on Moody Radio. Bob is also a local church pastor, Redeemer Community Church in Little Rock and an author of several books. Bob is a lively conversationalist. I sat down with him during the National Religious Broadcasters Convention, where he served as the emcee of the event.Bob is a board member of the NRB as well.
We talk in depth about the medium of radio, about his perspective of the evangelical movement today, and what its like to pastor, preach and host a syndicated broadcast. I guarantee you will love this conversation.
