More recently, as the publicity manager for WaterBrook Multnomah, the evangelical division of Random House, she provided quality Christian content, in the form of author interviews, to NRB-affiliated broadcasters. Sturgis brings a sincere passion for Christian broadcasting to her new role.

“I am thrilled to be a part of NRB,” said Sturgis. “In my prior professional roles, I worked with Christian clients and media. I have seen the impact of Christian broadcasting personally, and I am thrilled to take part in the association’s work and mission for the cause of Christ!”

In welcoming Sturgis, Dr. Wright said: “Melissa is a talented and welcome addition to our efforts to serve NRB members, here and around the world.”

As Director of Membership, Sturgis will provide strategic direction and leadership for the Membership Division to recruit, maintain, develop and serve the association membership.
