The opportunity to expand the content of The Alabama Baptist to the airwaves through a radio show and podcast has broadened our reach to new audiences statewide, nationally and internationally.
Hannah Muñoz, TAB’s digital editor, oversees both the radio show and podcast. She works with staff as well as our production partners to produce the weekly shows.
You can find the TAB News radio show on Birmingham’s WXJC 101.1 FM and 850 AM each Saturday at 2 p.m. or at http://player.listenlive.co/42691. The pre-recorded show is a 30-minute conversation led by co-hosts Jennifer Davis Rash and Debbie Campbell. Guests join Rash and Campbell in the studio or by phone each week to discuss a specific topic.
Muñoz then takes the radio show and an audio digest of the next week’s issue of The Alabama Baptist and assists our production partner Square Core Media with all the elements for producing the podcast.
The audio digest is a roughly 30-minute abridged version of the main news articles, features, in-depth reports, Theology 101 and the Sunday School commentaries.
In some cases the writers read their own articles; in other cases TAB staff members read the copy.
And some weeks we have special guests read one of the articles. For instance, Sydney Basden, who has served as a communications intern with the Alabama Baptist State Board of Missions this semester and will graduate from the University of Alabama in May, will appear in the April 4 episode.
Pastors, ministry leaders and other friends also help us with the articles from week to week.
The TAB News podcast is released each Tuesday morning and coincides with that week’s publication.
It can be found on iTunes, iHeartRadio, Stitcher or anywhere you get your podcasts as well as at www.thealabamabaptist.org/explore/podcasts. (TAB)
