After an 18-month hiatus, I’m excited to announce I’ll be returning to radio on June 22 with a new, live program on Salem Radio called The Roys Report! This weekly, call-in program will air Saturdays at 11 a.m. on AM 1160/WYLL in Chicago, and will re-air on Sundays at 7 p.m. on AM 560/The Answer. (The program will also be available as a podcast at my website.)
Like my previous show, Up For Debate, The Roys Report will feature multiple guests and callers, exploring critical issues related to faith and culture. And like before, I’ll use my skills and experience as both an investigative reporter and a disciple of Jesus to evaluate views, expose lies, and uncover truth. With each show, my goal will be to provide credible information paired with biblical insight so you can discern truth from error.
The Roys Report will be independent and uncensored. In other words, I will be able report any story and any issue that I think the public wants and needs to hear.
This may not seem like a big deal, but it is. This means that The Roys Report will be independent and uncensored. In other words, I will be able report any story and any issue that I think the public wants and needs to hear. I’ll also be able to discuss investigative stories, like my recent ones on Harvest Bible Chapel, on my new program. This will enable me to reach new audiences, as well as discuss these stories live as they unfold. (I discuss my investigative reporting in the video below.)
I am so grateful that God has provided this platform and I am committed to stewarding this one-hour of crucial weekly airtime for the cause of Christ and for the strengthening of His Church.
However, none of this would be possible without your generous support. Since I first appealed to you for help on June 6, you have donated $5,300, including $1,000/month in recurring gifts. I am blown away by your generosity and support and feel a deep sense of gratitude and duty to serve you with this program. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I also want to thank my ministry and business sponsors for making this possible. Judson University has been amazing, not only setting up and managing a fund for my ministry, but also financially supporting the new radio show. Initially, I’ll be broadcasting from Salem’s studios in Elk Grove Village, Illinois. But we’re hoping to soon broadcast live from Judson’s campus in Elgin, Illinois, as soon as funds can be raised for extra equipment and all technical issues tested and tried. Judson President Gene Crume and his entire staff have been an incredible blessing and I look forward to a long and rewarding ministry partnership with them.
I am blown away by your generosity and support and feel a deep sense of gratitude and duty to serve you with this program. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I’m also honored to have the support of Marquardt of Barrington. I met owner Dan Marquardt while reporting on Harvest Bible Chapel. As you may recall, Dan was one of the elders publicly censured by Harvest in 2013 for daring to stand up to James MacDonald and call out his ungodly behavior. I am so thrilled that Dan and his brother and business partner, Kurt Marquardt, would support The Roys Report. They are awesome brothers in Christ, plus they run a fantastic car dealership. I like it so much, my husband and I bought our last car there!
Lastly, I want to thank Ken Mariotti and his brothers at Woodland Windows and Doors for their support. Ken is another former Harvest elder who refused to condone sin when he saw it. It’s not surprising, then, that Ken and his company are well-known for their integrity. I couldn’t be more pleased to have Woodland Windows and Doors as a sponsor for the program.
So, thank you, everyone, for your support. I am truly touched and I hope you’ll tune in regularly for The Roys Report. And if you’d like to join those who have partnered with me, just click the donate button below!
