I'm very pleased to let you know that my dad, Don Wildmon, will receive the 2017 National Religious Broadcasters Hall of Fame Award on Thursday, March 2, at the NRB International Christian Media Convention in Orlando, Florida.
NRB's most prestigious award is presented to an individual NRB member for invaluable contribution to the field of Christian communications, exhibition of the highest standards, and evidence of faithfulness in Christ. Dad was selected to receive this year's award.
When he started American Family Association 40 years ago, he had no idea how far God would lead this ministry, but he knew he was called toward restoring Christian values in our culture.
His wisdom and insight led him to start American Family Radio in 1991. Today, his vision is alive in 188 Christian radio stations nationwide.
In congratulating Dad, NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson said, "I am thankful for the tireless efforts of Don Wildmon and American Family Association. It can, at times, be difficult to stand up for what is right, but Don and AFA have done so these past four decades as part of their commitment to protect families across the nation – thereby protecting the very building blocks of our society. Their impact has been broadly felt."
Will you join me in congratulating Dad on receiving this prestigious award?
