WASHINGTON (NRB) – Crossroads Global Media Group will receive an NRB Milestone Award on Thursday, March 2, at Proclaim 17, the NRB International Christian Media Convention in Orlando, Florida.
Longevity in any field is becoming a rarity, and exemplary service in Christian broadcasting for 50 years or more is a feat worthy of recognition and affirmation. Through its Milestone Award, NRB honors the industry pioneers who brought Christian communications to the place of respect and achievement it enjoys today.
Crossroads (www.crossroads.media) is Canada's leading provider of faith and values media content for people of all ages. In 1977, Rev. David Mainse launched its flagship television program, 100 Huntley Street, which is the longest-running daily telecast in Canada. Crossroads conveys the unchanging message of God's love to the world.
“At Crossroads Global Media Group, we believe that to change culture, you must make culture,” said Lorna Dueck, CEO of Crossroads Global Media Group. “We create, broadcast, and distribute media that has the power to change. Through our omni-channel approach, we touch, move, and inspire people with faith and values content impacting people through media.”
In congratulating Crossroads, NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson said, “Crossroads understands and values the power of media in reaching and impacting lives. And through media, Crossroads has edified countless individuals with inspiring stories, timeless truths, and the Gospel message.”
The Milestone Award is one of 21 awards that will be presented during Proclaim 17, which takes place February 27-March 2, 2017, at the Orlando World Center Marriott in Orlando. For the complete list of 2017 award recipients, click here.
