Nashville, Tennessee - (June 10, 2009) - "Don Moen & Friends", the new syndicated three hour Sunday morning drive time radio show hosted by Platinum-selling recording artist, songwriter and worship leader Don Moen, launched this past weekend in over 150 USA markets, plus internationally in over 20 nations.

The program features new and classic worship music, interviews with leading musical artists, pastors and Christian leaders, and noted personalities, as well as testimonies of how God is working around the globe. This program's core themes are hope, comfort and encouragement--themes which embody what Don Moen is all about in his ministry, whether on stage or off.

The first show featured encouraging stories of faith by people such as Bart Millard of MercyMe who talked about his relationship with his father, and "The Today Show" hostess Kathie Lee Gifford who shared the story of finding a Bible verse on her son's Facebook page. In the featured segment "God Will Make a Way," Moen told of his personal challenges in finding words to comfort a family member in a time of tragedy.

The successful launch was greeted by a chorus of glowing comments from Christian broadcasters:

Chalmer Harper, PD of 88.3 The Wind, Springfield, Missouri - "I am all for the show. It is something that we (Christian Radio) haven't been able to capture in 'worship shows' before. It combines the encouragement, the stories, and the power that gives worship its life to many of us. By using real people, real stories, and songs that we associate with worship- I think people will feel very comfortable in the arms of God with their 'worship family.'.... We all identify somewhere, and the stories are compelling enough that it keeps you interested, even if your circumstances aren't near the same. That's what we long for. Connectivity - with each other - with God."

Becky Alignay, PD of WGTS, Washington, DC - "In a time where we get several prayer requests a week for people who are losing their homes, or have lost a job, we feel so good about being about to provide WGTS 91.9 listeners with something of true lasting value - God's hope."

Jason Sharpe, PD of KTIS, Minneapolis - "Hope, comfort and encouragement is what KTIS/Minneapolis is all about, so adding Don Moen & Friends was the easiest decision I have made in a long time."

Dawn Hibbard, GM of KSGN, Riverside, CA - "The first time Don Moen 'stepped up to the plate' in KSGN's weekend programming line up he hit a grand slam! After the first broadcast we received enthusiastic response from listeners like 'Don Moen and Friends was a delight' and 'I listened to Don Moen this weekend and I loved the worship music.' The commentary was so encouraging. When we're serving our audience well, that's a good thing. And when Don does all the work and makes it so simple that's even better! Looking forward to next weekend ...and many more to come."
