High school students who wish to continue their education at a religious institution may be surprised at the number of extracurricular activities that these schools offer. For example, Moody Bible Institute (MBI) in Illinois hosts Moody Radio, which is one of the largest Christian radio networks in the U.S., according to the university.
Located in downtown Chicago, Moody Radio has 35 owned and operated stations, and over 700 affiliates and outlets that carry all or part of its programming. The network airs a variety of shows that are directed primarily toward a fundamentalist Christian audience. The format ranges between music, lecture, campus chapel, listener-interactive talk and Bible devotionals.
In 1958, MBI purchased WCRF in Cleveland, Ohio, and then WDLM in Moline, Illinois. The network eventually grew to include 35 stations in the continental U.S. By the end of the 1960s, the network's audience had increased to 30 million listeners. In 1982, Moody Radio began a satellite-fed network that enabled communications across the country.
Moody Radio provides biblical programming 24 hours a day. Some of the most popular and award-winning programs include: Midday Connection, Chris Fabry Live!, In the Market with Janet Parshall, and Music Thru the Night.
