SPECIAL GUESTS

                                                                   

The pace of our jobs is demanding and constantly growing. While we juggle the many responsibilities that are competing for our time, we must also keep a steady eye on the future and the growth potential before us. Radio is morphing faster now than ever before. Exciting times are ahead. With the advancement of the opportunities to reach more people for Christ, relationships remain a core value for radio. As we live in the “fast forward” mentality, let’s pause and see what amazing things God has in store for us at Momentum 2022!

"I don’t depend on my own strength to accomplish this; however I do have one compelling focus: I forget all of the past as I fasten my heart to the future instead. I run straight for the divine invitation of reaching the heavenly goal and gaining the victory-prize through the anointing of Jesus." Philippians 3:13 & 14 (TPT)

WORKSHOPS

Momentum Workshops take place first thing Wednesday morning, with two hours of topic-related concepts, interactive learning, and discussions. Choose from 6 different workshop topics where you can learn more, develop new skills within an area of concentration, and revisit some basics.

As if serving one community isn’t a privilege, BOOST RADIO served six in 2021. In January, BOOST reintroduced themselves to St. Louis when they moved from a translator to a full-power signal. BOOST hit the cold streets with weekly “Sweet Stops;” the first 95 listeners to show up got free treats. BOOST team members served as the official DJs for two different Polar Plunges with the Special Olympics in February; nearly $200,000 was raised from hundreds of brave swimmers. March was when BOOST grew into Chicago! To celebrate, the station delivered deep dish pizza to listeners in St Louis and Chicago. BOOST RADIO renamed April 1 to April Fuel’s Day and had DJs pop up at random gas stations in both markets to buy gas for strangers. Spring & Summer brought BOOST to Minneapolis, Portland, OR, Pittsburgh, and Fayetteville, NC. The station brought their new friends Pop Up Parties for their backyard BBQ’s and open houses. BOOST supplied food, party favors, and custom mixes for dozens of winners nationwide. During the late summer and early fall, the station partnered with Out of the Darkness for suicide prevention walks. Across all BOOST markets, nearly 10,000 walked together. During the holidays, the station teamed up with rapper Thi’sl & the Salvation Army for the Full Ride Toy Drive. BOOST listeners filled a storage locker & U Haul full of gifts for children in need. 2021 was a year BOOST hit the streets and empowered its audience to bless others in their communities.
