Praise 90.1 FM WJOU is in the middle of its annual on-air spring Shar-a-Thon fundraising campaign. While celebrating the station’s 40 years of broadcast ministry, the Shar-a-Thon theme is “Standing on His Promises.” On Monday, the week began with a full day of prayer requests, praise testimonies, and inspirational music. During the Shar-a-Thon, which will continue through Thursday evening, local pastors stop by for prayer and encouragement, and WJOU employees and on-air talent share their broadcasting skills and issue fundraising challenges. Some of the on-air talent who are participating include include: 

  • Dawna Baker – “Morning Joy”
  • Ivy Starks – “Bread of Life”
  • Anthonye Perkins – “Sunset to Sunset”
  • K-Swan – “Praise Unplugged”
  • David Person – “Healthy Alabama Podcast”
  • Kenny Anderson – “2nd Chance”
  • Jody Jones – “American Tapestry”

 The Shar-a-thon is a great opportunity to renew one’s commitment to this radio ministry as a Praise Partner, or becoming a Praise Partner for the first time. Donations will help to continue the station’s outreach mission to our campus community, the Tennessee Valley, and our listeners around the world. The ministry of WJOU is also an important component of media training for students at Oakwood University. During the Shar-a-Thon, donations can be made at any time by visiting the website www.wjou.org  or call the Shar-A-Thon hotline at (256) 726-7979 during business hours. Even after the Shar-A-Thon is completed on April 25, online donationscan be made around the clock. Thanks in advance for your prayers and Praise Partner support of the Tennessee Valley’s Praise Station, WJOU 90.1 FM.
