We are pleased to announce that we’ve moved our children’s programming to earlier time slots to provide these stories and teaching programs at times that would be more convenient for this special audience.
This was only done after much thought and input from our listeners. During the week, children’s programming used to start at 4pm and was in a one-hour block. When we started airing Adventures in Odyssey, it was simply added after the other programs, putting it into a time when listeners were commuting and preparing for their evening. By moving these programs up to 3:30, they are airing in the “after school” time block. And, placing them back-to-back, they are finished before 5pm.
Saturday programming also began later in the morning, at 9:30. Most children are up well before this time, and families are starting their Saturday activities well ahead of the noon time that the programs ended. We now start the airing of the programs at 8am, and finish them before 10:30. Of course, Bible Quiz will continue to air during this time, so be sure the kids (12 and under) listen carefully to win a Walmart gift card!
In making these changes, a couple of other programs were affected. Here’s a list of the changes:
