Church launches LDS Radio – Mormon Channel

The church launched a new online radio station today. You can read more about it in the newsroom at lds.org. Larry Richman, Director of the Church Publications and Media Project office also writes about it on his blog, LDS Media Talk.

“Mormon Channel, a new radio service of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, launches 18 May and can be accessed via the Internet or HD radio affiliates. The newly created 24-hour, 7-days a-week format is available live online at http://radio.lds.org/, but content may also be downloaded.”

First impression

I have been listening to it for several hours this morning and so far, it has been a glitch-free experience. I plan on downloading some of the podcasts and listening to them as I travel to and from the office later this week. They do not currently have a FaceBook Widget or an iPhone Application but are working on both.

My initial impression is favorable. It’s worth taking a look. One of the channels features personal interviews with Church leaders in a program titled Conversations. In the initial episode, Deseret Book CEO, Sheri Dew, interviews Elder David A. Bednar and his wife, Susan. I look forward to that and future podcasts.

    Brother Malone, thank you so much for sharing. I just tuned in and heard the sweet voices of children. As they answered the questions of the gospel, the Spirit touched my heart. Thank you so much!
