“In the News,” Ensign, July 2010, 78
Since its development just over one year ago, the official radio station of the Church, the Mormon Channel, has made some changes to better serve radio listeners and Internet audiences worldwide.
New radio programs include Conversations, Faith in Action, and a series called Q&A.
Conversations features interviews with General Authorities, auxiliary leaders, and other faithful members from across the globe. Previously featured guests include Elders L. Tom Perry, Dallin H. Oaks, M. Russell Ballard, and other members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles.
Interviews are informal, enabling listeners to learn unique things about the Apostles such as childhood experiences. Conversations episodes are typically 90 minutes long.
Faith in Action airs weekly and discusses welfare efforts of the Church and how the gospel can help people become more self-reliant. Guest speakers include returned LDS humanitarian missionaries, who share experiences from their time serving in various regions of the world.
Q&A allows people to e-mail questions to the radio station through firstname.lastname@example.org. Many questions come from those who are not members of the Church.
Audio podcasts of the programs are available in English on the Mormon Channel Web site, radio.lds.org. The Mormon Channel can also be found in eight major markets on Bonneville International radio stations.
