Member Spotlight – Julie Norwood

What led you to a career in the radio industry?

Originally, I joined the staff to be the Office Manager, with no intention to be on air, I was asked to help with a morning prayer/devo time. I began on air by praying for requests from listeners. That lead to being on air with a co-host, doing weekend voice tracking and eventually doing my own radio show. What led me to continue down the radio road was the captivating opportunities that Christian radio offers. What an amazing and powerful way to minister to people.

What advice would you give people new to the business?

“Welcome to the wonderful world of Christian Radio!”  A place where you can take as many or as little opportunities as you desire.  Remain humble and flexible to learn, grow and not be perfect, but faithful.  The more you allow God and your listeners in, the more rewarding your day will be.


Give a shoutout to someone who is making a difference in radio and what are they doing to make an impact?

Beth Bacall, Kim Bindel and the countless other women in radio that I don’t know by name, but every single time, they show up and offer what they have for the glory of God and the encouragement for the listeners.


Tell us about a project or accomplishment that you consider to be the most significant in your career.

I tend to initiate and implement new things/event/etc., hmmmm, let me think. I’m very thankful for the creativity that God gives me and prompts me to be faithful to the end. If it’s worth doing, it’s worth overdoing. LOL. I would have to say our Christmas promotion on the Breeze, we give $25 gift cards to homeless middle and high school kids, who don’t have a permanent residence. WOW! That has been amazing and it’s now in its 4th year. GRATEFUL.


Tell us about a story of a Christian song that made a difference in your life or the life of a listener.

“He’s in the waiting” – Take Courage by Bethel. The entire lyrics of that song rock my doubt, unbelief and negativity. “Hold onto your hope as your triumph unfolds, He’s never failing.”  AMEN!

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
