Positive Life Radio Holds Annual Sharathon Capping Fall Celebration

September 01, 2003 | Tara Jeske

Volunteers look forward to a flood of calls pouring into their stations as Positive Life Radio (PLR) kicks off its three-day Sharathon event on Sept. 9 and brings Fall Celebration to a close.

Fall Celebration is Sept. 3–12 and includes special events each day. On Window Sticker Wednesday, listeners can pick up a PLR static decal. On Pastor Appreciation Days, listeners are invited to call in with a special message for their pastor. Praise stories are welcome during Praise and Prayer Day. Also on this day, Christian recording artist Bobby Michaels will be in the studio with guest hosts sharing stories and talking with listeners as they call in. Other special Fall Celebration events include All Request Day and Artist Day.

The PLR Sharathon, held Sept. 9–11, is an annual event during which listeners call the station to pledge their support for the coming year and share prayer requests and personal stories.

“Sharathon is the craziest event of the year at Positive Life Radio,” says Kevin Krueger, PLR station manager. “It’s fun, lots of giveaway action, tons of prayer and thanksgiving! It’s totally unique—I’ve never heard anything like it. It’s awesome to see God at work through thousands of listeners.”

From the very beginning listeners have supported PLR and participated in Sharathon, ultimately supporting PLR’s goal to emphasize the positive life God can give anyone who accepts.

Guest hosts include Jon Hull, program director of KSBJ, a top Christian music station in Houston; Todd Isberner, president of the fund-raising organization ShareMedia; Lauren Libbey, chief operating officer of The Navigators; and Mike Agee, general manager of KTSY in Nampa, Idaho, a two-time Dove Award-winning station.

Five different stations and the Internet broadcast will participate in Sharathon. Those stations are: Walla Walla/Tri-Cities/Pendleton KGTS 91.3, including Moscow/Pullman KGTS 95.3 and Lewiston/Clarkston KGTS 105.5; Spokane KEEH 104.9; Wenatchee/Moses Lake KPLW 89.9, including Omak KPLW 91.7; Yakima KYPL 91.1
