The (eight-hour mega) Countdown kicks off at 4PM on WJTL this New Year’s Eve and wraps with a party horns and a countdown to Midnight.
The radio singles, along with artwork and important artist links, will be revealed throughout New Year’s Eve at WJTLs Facebook page.
The page gives listeners opportunity to link to valuable artist resources: an artist book, a non-profit, a remix or a testimony.
Producer and host of The Top 100 Countdown of 2020 is Music Director, Nik Curtis Beal; “Biblical truth, artist vulnerability and entertaining conversation from our Top 100 played artists of the year always sets a strong foundation for the upcoming year. The Top 100 Countdown is formatted like the WJTL weekly Top 25 Countdown, and my goal for the listeners is to experience deeper camaraderie with the artists and with WJTL.”
The Top 100 Countdown of 2020 will showcase a record nineteen artist collaboration singles, a dozen artist interviews, seven debut artists, and four American Church worship teams. The show will also feature top WJTL short programs at the :20 break, a donor update at the :35 and Sponsored Announcements and PSAs at the :50.
Nik Curtis Beal hosts The REQUEST Show w. Nik(at Night). The long running request show continues to be a literal open line for WJTL and their listeners. The REQUEST Show started airing in the evenings in the mid-1980s with WJTLs first evening DJ, Chris Silver.
Officially, WJTL began airing their annual Top 100 Countdown, reviewing the top songs of the year, in 1985.
