Radio and Trust

By TWR Staff
Africa, Malawi, Zimbabwe, S&E Africa, W&C Africa, Worship ConneXion

The world is always changing, and radio evolves along with it. This testifies to the resilience and sustainability of radio! On February 13, the world celebrates World Radio Day and the theme of the 2022 edition of World Radio Day is thus devoted to Radio and Trust. Trans World Radio (TWR), a multinational evangelical Christian media distributor brings messages of hope to the world through the power of radio. Even during the recent lockdowns, the radio proved to be the medium that best copes in crises.

Building Trust

Speaking fluently in more than 300 languages and dialects, TWR exists to reach the world for Jesus Christ. Since 1952, God has enabled TWR to help lead people from doubt to decision to discipleship. Together with international partners, local churches, and other ministries, TWR provides relevant programming, discipleship resources and dedicated workers to spread hope to individuals around the globe. Even amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic TWR ceaselessly endeavours to walk alongside listeners in many areas of life, while broadcasting the Good News throughout the nations. The testimony below reveals the trust that has been built between this listener from Zimbabwe and the radio.

Listener Testimony

“Transworld Radio did not only change my life; it shaped my life. It went on to be my greatest source of inspiration and encouragement when God called me into ministry as a pastor. Along the way I have missed a lot of programmes because of work and other occupations, but TWR has never been knocked off my radar. It still remains my favourite station of all time. Here is a station that I am married to until death do us part. Long live Transworld Radio Africa. Long live the love of my heart!”

Connection

Worship ConneXion, produced in the TWR Africa studios, airs five days a week on the New Life Africa Satellite Network (NLASN) as well as on TWR Africa Radio. This programme is a renamed extension of 100% Worship and now extends to more of Africa.

A listener from Malawi suggested the new title. He said, “Worship Connection sounds great, and it resonates well since through worship we connect with God. We find peace and hope. Another reason that this name would be perfect for the programme is that listeners get to hear the Word of God expressed through different topics from the presenters and get an opportunity to engage in those topics while worshiping and connecting with God and with each other.”

The show is presented by Thulani Mdletshe, Unathi Sithole and Marinus Geyser. They all attest that both old and new those listeners have built a trust to this radio programme. Listeners develop loyal relationships with AM/FM radio personalities based on humour and trust.

Unathi Sithole, one of the hosts on the program, says, “Radio has stood the test of times. It is good that we celebrate this medium. Listeners build trust with the radio through the relationship built with the presenters or content producers and off course the programme itself. “I want to hear the voices. I want to hear the different accents. I want people to get to know each other on the show, from different parts of Africa,” Thulani says. Marinus adds that TWR Africa and New Life Africa Satellite Network share the same mission: to proclaim Christ in Africa.
