Retiring CDR General Manager to be Honored

by Public Relations Office - Cedarville, OH

Cedarville, Ohio—Paul Gathany came to Cedarville College from Randolph, N.Y. in 1959, with an AM transmitter and an interest in radio broadcasting. Little did he know that his hobby would become a dream, a dream that would one day become the CDR Radio Network.

After 43 years as general manager at CDR, Gathany recently retired from the station to which he has dedicated his life. The community is invited to attend a special chapel service to be held in Gathany’s honor at 10 a.m. on Monday, March 26 at Cedarville University in the University’s Dixon Ministry Center.

During his time as manager, Gathany helped CDR grow from an 11.6-watt station with one signal into a 30,000-watt, 14-station radio network heard in three states and around the world on the Internet. Gathany has worked hand-in-hand with Cedarville University to make CDR a light that shines Jesus’ love into the listening community, providing news, Christian teaching programs, and music. When questioned about the highlights of managing CDR, Gathany responded, “What rises to the top is the joy that has come from the knowledge of listeners who have come to Christ and have experienced spiritual growth due to the broadcast tool God has placed in our stewardship.”

Although he has loved his time with CDR and its staff, Gathany is looking forward to spending more time with his family and using his abilities to serve as opportunities arise. The community is invited to attend a special chapel service to be held in Gathany’s honor at 10 a.m. on Monday, March 26 at Cedarville University in the University’s Dixon Ministry Center.

The Gathany recognition services can be heard on CDR Radio, The PATH® (90.3 FM locally), at 11 a.m. and 8 p.m. as well as online at www.ThePath.fm. The network operates 14 stations serving portions of Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky, as well as a live feed over the Internet called The PATH® Worldwide. The PATH® is a community-supported media ministry of Cedarville University.
