Manassas, VA– Moody Radio will receive the 2013 NRB Radio Program of the Year Award on Tuesday, March 5, at the NRB 2013 Convention & Exposition.
The NRB Radio Program of the Year Award is presented each year to a radio program that impacts the listener by being compelling, relevant, informative, personable, and entertaining, while demonstrating an authentic Christian faith. This year, the judges named Moody Radio the winner of the award for The OneCry Prayer Summit.
“Moody Radio did a superb job in producing The OneCry Prayer Summit,” noted NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright. “Their efforts certainly paid off as thousands throughout the nation came together to pray for spiritual awakening and revival within the church and to seek the Lord for reconciliation and unity in the body of Christ.”
On four consecutive Thursday evenings in May 2012, Moody Radio, in partnership with OneCry (www.OneCry.com), produced a series of live concert of prayer specials from the studios of Moody Radio called The OneCry Prayer Summit. Moody Radio Network, together with Ambassador Advertising Agency and American Family Radio, brought together an unprecedented 461 broadcast outlets that carried this broadcast event, which was focused on seeking God for revival and spiritual awakening.
Since airing The OneCry Prayer Summit, OneCry has registered thousands of people who signed the “OneCry Declaration.” There have also been many OneCry events since May, including a prayer event inCharlotte,NC, representing 100 churches and attracting 9,000 to pray before the opening of the Democratic National Convention.
