Israel has allocated radio broadcast frequency to an American Evangelical Christian radio network that will broadcast messages of hope to people in Syria, Lebanon, Cyprus and Jordan, with expanded nighttime coverage into Turkey and Egypt.
This new radio station will be a continuation of the VOICE OF HOPE, which was established by George Otis in 1979. The new VOICE OF HOPE is owned and operated by Strategic Communications, a global Christian Evangelical radio network.
According to PR Newswire:
The VOICE OF HOPE was inaugurated this week in the presence of Israel’s Minister of Communication, Tzachi Hanegbi who said, “This radio station exemplifies the deep connection and unique bond that Israel has with the American people and between Jews and Christians. We are certain that the message of hope that will be brought by the station will be an uplifting tool and a benefit to our neighbors. The State of Israel supports any message of peace to the people in neighboring countries and this is why we decided to support the reestablishment of the Voice of Hope.”
The VOICE OF HOPE broadcast studios are located on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, Israel. The programming will include Christian Arabic presenters, Arabic Christian music, news, education, drama and inspirational messages.
