WBGL’s The Unfolding Wins a Gabriel Award

WBGL is thrilled to announce The Unfolding podcast has won a Gabriel Award. “The Unfolding: Page 1 featuring Joe Buchanan” won first place in the Best Podcast – Radio Award Category of the Gabriel Awards.


Host and Creator of The Unfolding (and WBGL Middays Host), Meridith Foster shares her thoughts, “When Jason Rackow and I first began talking about the idea of The Unfolding, we knew Joe Buchanan’s story was the first one we wanted to share. We are grateful to Joe for telling his story and to the team at WBGL for helping to make The Unfolding a reality. We are especially grateful to Jeff Scott, Ryan Springer, Jason Sharp and Northwestern Media for throwing fuel on the fire of our podcast ideas.”


The Gabriel Awards is an annual contest which focuses on the content’s ability to uplift and nourish the human spirit. The contest has been recognizing the best in secular and religious film, broadcasting, and digital media outlets since 1965.


WBGL Network Production Director and The Unfolding Producer, Jason Rackow reflects on winning the award, “We were honored to win this prestigious award considering the high caliber of the other projects under consideration. It affirms the work we’ve put into the podcast, and we look forward to developing even more future content for our audience.”


The Unfolding podcast has been downloaded over 275,000 times in more than 90 countries since its launch in late April 2019 and is available wherever podcasts are found.
