CEDARVILLE -- CDR Radio (WCDR 90.3 FM) will continue to broadcast 24-hour breaking news coverage of the terrorist attack on New York and Washington through the weekend. Regular programming has been suspended so listeners can receive updates on breaking news stories through CNN Radio and Impact News, CDR's own radio news service. WCDR is also simulcasting programming over the Internet and maintaining a regional bulletin board of area activities and prayer events on its Web page and communicating information on how listeners can support the relief efforts.
General Manager Paul Gathany said the "live" coverage is helping listeners to stay informed of the latest developments and provide a biblical response to the crisis. "As a Christian radio service, we feel it's our obligation to offer the latest information on the crisis" said Gathany. "We are encouraging listeners to pray, donate blood and provide financial assistance for the families of those directly affected."
CDR Radio currently operates three primary, non-commercial FM stations and five FM translator facilities serving a potential audience of more than 3.5 million listeners in central and southern Ohio, eastern Indiana, and northeastern Kentucky. CDR Cyber Radio, their Internet broadcasting service, serves listeners worldwide. For more information about the special programming, contact CDR Radio at 1-800-333-0601 or visit www.cdrradio.com.
