The Lutheran Hour® will begin airing on the 101 stations of the Bott Radio Network as of May 31. The weekly program will fill prime slots formerly used by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association on the network's broadcast coverage into 15 states. The Bott Radio Network's goal is to provide quality Bible teaching with Christian news and information delivered by some of the greatest Bible teachers of today.

"This ministry partnership with Bott marks the milestone of pushing our reach to over one million listeners each and every week in the U.S.," says Kurt Buchholz, president & CEO of Lutheran Hour Ministries. "In a society that is moving steadily away from Christianity, being present with a clear Gospel proclamation is the first step in reaching nonbelievers with the love of Christ."

The addition of Bott stations will provide The Lutheran Hour with a large presence in areas with high Lutheran populations while also offering outreach aimed at nonbelievers since nearly 30 percent of the audience is not part of a church. Additional media distribution options through such means as iHeartRadio, iTunes, Apple TV, TuneIn Radio, and audio streaming will also be available.

The Lutheran Hour will air on most Bott stations at 8 a.m. every Sunday, although some stations will air the broadcast at 9 a.m. Listeners are encouraged to check local listings or go to to find out if you have a Bott station in your area.

"It is a great privilege to be given the 8:00 Sunday morning time slot, the one that was home to the Billy Graham 'Hour of Decision' for over 50 years," says Rev. Gregory Seltz, Speaker of The Lutheran Hour. "In many ways, one can see the legacy of The Lutheran Hour coming full circle. When Walter Maier died, Billy Graham rose to prominence on radio and television. A great respect was developed between him and Dr. Oswald Hoffmann. For Richard Bott to think of us as a respected replacement for Dr. Graham's Sunday program is an opportunity that I will cherish for a long time."

Thank you for your prayers and support as we move faithfully into this new opportunity.
