“This is the finest holiday special in all of Radio. It’s produced specifically to make you feel as though you are listening in to event radio of yesteryear, when people were snuggled up and sitting around the fireplace, hot chocolate in hand, radio on, with the Christmas tree lights glowing nearby. We have garnered huge numbers for previous KeepTheFaith marathons and our sponsors love it. We offer it with limited commercial interruptions–so we are able to get premium dollars from just a couple of local title sponsors.”

– Mike Blakemore, Program Director/WFSH in Atlanta

“Quite frankly, we offer this to local advertisers who are looking for premium Christmas content to sponsor. They want something special–and this is it. Nothing else compares. By airing the marathon, we also have the opportunity to give our on-air and talk show talent the day off on Christmas eve and Christmas day.”

— Chuck Tyler, Director of Programming/KKLA, KFSH in Los Angeles

“Stations get an overwhelming amount of audience sampling during the marathon. This has become a calling card of sorts for them. So, this year they have specifically included family friendly, mainstream names like Hillary Scott and Sadie Robertson, to guest-host. Plus features with the likes of Reba and Dolly! These stars serve as a magnet for people, especially women, who are looking for truly festive holiday programming to share with their families while driving around town listening to Christmas music.”
