Christian radio CEO bows out

After eight years, it’s Josh Reid’s final week as CEO of Pulse 94.1.

“It has been a privilege to lead your local Christian radio station,” says Josh.

“During this time I am pleased to have seen significant growth and increased impact through this local media mission.  I have seen brand new digital equipment installed at the antenna and transmitter end, as well as in the studios. Our support from the community, during our appeals, station sponsors, live street broadcasts, has increased tremendously during this time, allowing us to continue broadcasting on FM and Internet 24 hours a day, every day. It has been a pleasure building such a strong team of media professionals, resulting in the high quality sound we currently have on air.”

“By far my favourite achievement was the creation of a partnership with the Catholic Diocese of Wollongong, in the introduction of weekly Christian radio show ‘The Journey.’

This has developed into a top class radio show for our station, and it is now simulcast on 14 other Christian radio stations around Australia. However, it is not only the quality of the show that I am concerned with. The reason this is close to my heart is that it is a direct, purposeful, specific, practical partnership between a church denomination and the local Christian radio station. It is a real world, cutting-edge example of a church group recognising the power and reach that local Christian radio does have, and choosing to partner with it, through provision of content and finance. I only wish more churches would do the same.”

I am pleased to be leaving Pulse 94.1, in the hands of a highly capable, richly experienced, and passionate leader, Aaron Wright.”

Aaron is no stranger to Pulse 94.1, having worked with the station for more than a year in both a fundraising capacity, and hosting the daily drive show.

Aaron, was previously the host of breakfast on Hope 103.2.

“Finally,” says Josh.

“Thank you  for your support of this highly powerful, but often underestimated local missionary organisation, who constantly broadcasts through media, outside the walls of church buildings, to a society who hasn’t heard the Christian gospel.”
