About Us

We are America’s preferred trade association for radio professionals working in gospel inspirational format, representing stations that reach over a million listeners.

Our Journey...

In the summer of 2022, a group of radio professionals were invited to Titus Showers’ album release concert in Atlanta, Georgia. For many, it was the first time that radio professionals specializing in gospel and inspirational formats gathered from across the country. Charles Johnson of Shreveport, LA, recognized a significant void and felt divinely inspired to establish an association dedicated to gospel radio. He reached out to Kyle Glover of Philadelphia, PA, Fred Harris of Little Rock, AR, and Ju Joyner of Norfolk, VA, to share the vision God had given him and to express his willingness to step out in faith to create the National Association of Gospel Radio. Each of them embraced the vision and agreed to join him as co-founders.

Today, the association is firmly established, having hosted its first national convention, boasting over a thousand members, strong leaders, and charters in four regions and more than twenty states.
