Manassas, VA – Whistling Frog Productions will receive the prestigious NRB International Innovation Award during the February 28th International Luncheon at the NRB Convention & Exposition.
“Using innovation and creativity, the Whistling Frog production team is providing spiritual insight in a secular setting,” said Dr. Ron Harris, NRB Senior Vice President for Strategic Partnerships. “Their use of thought-provoking spots and short features on non-Christian broadcast outlets takes the message of Christ into the marketplace, the very thing our Lord commands us to do.”
Whistling Frog Productions has been HCJB Global's UK radio department since 1997. Their passion is to find opportunities to place ads, “God spots,” and features that tackle the bigger questions of life on commercial radio to reach a secular audience with Christian themes. Whistling Frog Productions reaches out to listeners who would otherwise never listen to spiritual talk. The award-winning production team is also involved in professional radio training in the UK and overseas, and they offer much of their material free to radio producers, churches and schools.
The NRB International Innovation Award is presented to an organization based outside the United States that excels in innovative uses of electronic media in the proclamation of the Gospel of Christ.
