Praise Broadcast Network - Arlington, TX

Touching hearts around the world

The Words of His Heart On weekends, Pat would get up at 4am and be on the road by 5, in order to have everything ... See more in order for the station to be on the air exactly at 6am. Early one Saturday morning in the dark, as he was getting on the 10 Freeway in Loma Linda, heading for the radio station, Pat heard the words in his heart: “Praise Broadcasting Network.” He didn’t quite know why he had heard those words, so he kept them a secret of his heart, only sharing them with Claudia. Times had become very hard for Pat and Claudia. During the week, Pat had gone back to helping his father at his Real Estate office, but when the bottom fell out of the real estate market, selling a house was almost impossible. They were on the verge of losing their home, so instead of letting the bank repossess it, they sold it at a tremendous discount and moved to the mountains of Southern California to a little city nestled away in the pines called Crestline. “Praise Broadcasting Network” is born With the proceeds from the sale of their home, Pat and Claudia gave birth to “Praise Broadcasting Network,” incorporating it in San Bernardino, CA. They were also able to purchase enough broadcasting equipment to produce radio programming. In one room of their rented home in Crestline, Pat set up a recording studio. “Praise Broadcasting Network” began syndicating a weekly hour-long program called “Music of Faith” to several stations in the U.S. While the Christian world was turning to the new sounds of “Contemporary Christian Music,” Pat’s program kept with the beautiful sounds of Intimate Worship and the words of encouragement as God had taught him, weaving them in between carefully chosen songs. Producing the programs and syndicating them was not cheap. In order to help pay the expenses, Pat took a job as a Mountain Community weatherman for KCKC and KBON radio stations, whose main studios were located in the valley below in San Bernardino. The little weather studio from where Pat was to broadcast each morning was situated in a corner of the Coldwell Banker Real Estate office in Lake Arrowhead, a 20 minute ride through winding mountain roads. The first broadcast was just after 6am Monday thru Friday. The DJ from the main studios in the valley would call Pat on a special broadcast line, chat with him a minute, then ask for the forecast for the mountain areas and for the Inland Empire of Southern California. Pat would often have to forge through heavy snow in order to have the little broadcast studio on the air for the early morning weather report. Being late was not an option! ------ Shows: Unshackled!, Best of Praise Until Dawn, Intimate Worship Music, Praise Until Dawn, Zola Levitt Presents ----- Hosts: Pat Rutherford, Claudia Rutherford, Jonathan Moring, Zola Levitt
