Cedarville, Ohio—Supporters of CDR Radio (The PATH‚ 90.3 FM) responded to the station’s Ingathering 2001: Bridge of Friendship fund drive by contributing or making commitments of $690,200 toward operating needs of the non-commercial station. The interactive campaign featured a series of special interviews identifying ways that local churches are responding in support of the U.S. effort to eradicate terrorism networks around the world. CDR Radio General Manager Paul Gathany expressed his appreciation for the generous response of friends in the Miami Valley, many of whom contributed to support CDR’s 24-hour news coverage since the September tragedies on the East Coast. "During these days of national mobilization, listeners want reliable information, and we feel the combination of CNN News along with our own Impact News service provides a high standard of accuracy, fairness, and objectivity. We believe this information directly assists listeners who are praying specifically about world events." In addition to breaking news coverage of world events, CDR is giving listeners an opportunity to post prayer requests for those affected by the September 11 tragedy on a virtual "Wall of Prayer" at www.CDRradio.com. CDR Radio’s Miami Valley station is the southwest Ohio affiliate of the CDR Radio Network, a division of Cedarville University. The network also operates eight other Christian stations serving portions of Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky and broadcasts over the Internet through CDR CyberRadio (www.CDRradio.com).
