First Live Broadcast in Bangkok

Mr. Prawit Chularangsi doing the live broadcast "Home For Love" program

Lutheran Hour Ministries Thailand (LHMT) recently started broadcasting in Bangkok.  One of our radio speakers did a live broadcast of “Home for Love” on August 21 from 2:00-3:00pm.  In addition to being our first broadcast in Bangkok and the first time we have worked with that station and studio technician, this was also the first time that we have done a 1-hour program. 

Because the broadcast was in Bangkok, almost all of our LHMT staff were there to help and encourage the speaker.  While on the air, 9 listeners called in and talked with our staff.  The speaker talked with another caller on the air.  We left gift sets for the staff at the radio station to give to anyone who came to visit the station after we left.   

From September through February we’ll be experimenting with live broadcasts in Bangkok every Saturday afternoon.  Because we have more than one target audience, we will not continue to do hour-long programs.  Instead, we’ll divide the hour into two parts.  We’ll do a 30-minute “Home for Love” program that focuses on families and a 30-minute “Cheerful Life” program that appeals to workers.

At the end of February we’ll do an evaluation to determine how successful our live programs have been.  At that time we’ll decide if we should continue doing the programs in the same way or if we’ll try something different.
