The president of Lutheran Laymen’s League of Canada, Bob Felstead, expresses appreciation to a representative from Edmonton’s CFRN radio station broadcasting The Lutheran Hour for 65 years
ST. LOUIS, Mo At its quarterly meeting, the International Lutheran Laymen's League Board of Governors heard a report stating that in North America, more than one million lives are touched with the message of the Gospel each week through Lutheran Hour Ministries (LHM). Programs include The Lutheran Hour, Woman to Woman, daily
devotions, websites, podcasts and program downloads.
A recent listener survey on The Lutheran Hour showed that less than 55 percent of listeners have an affiliation with either Lutheran Church–Canada or The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. The average listener is a male between the ages of 45 and 65. While the majority listen to the 77-year-old weekly program on radio, about 10 percent also listen to the program online and three percent download the program to listen
on their MP3 player or IPod. "The survey results were very impressive," noted Ian Adnams, LCC's director of communications who serves as LCC liaison with the league. "Both the statistical data and written comments will help LHM fine tune its flagship program."
At a recent Lutheran Hour event in Alberta, Edmonton radio station CFRN received special recognition for carrying the program for 65 years.
The Lutheran Hour is broadcast on 70 stations in Canada. For a listing, go to The Lutheran Hour's Canadian website .
