Africa is partnering with a brand-new Christian satellite network to expand the reach of a popular music and commentary radio program across most of the African continent.

Worship Connection, produced by the Africa branch of global media ministry TWR (also known as Trans World Radio), will air five days a week on the New Life Africa Satellite Network (NLASN) beginning June 28.

The program, currently called 100% Worship and distributed on the internet as well as via satellite in South Africa and FM in Malawi, features TWR Africa hosts Unathi Sithole, Thulani Mdletshe and Marinus Geyser. With a new name and broader reach, the program’s unique blend of contemporary music and engaging talk will be geared to listeners interested in knowing more about Christianity.

One listener from Malawi wrote, “I’m enjoying the 100% Worship program. I feel really good every time I tune in. All my neighbors have gathered in my house to listen to the show. Keep the fire burning! God bless you.”

Motivated by the encouraging response from Malawi and elsewhere, the partnership strives to further the reach of 100% Worship to most of Africa through NLASN’s distribution channels: the internet, mobile apps and a direct-to-home satellite that beams signals to about 50 countries on the continent. The network also has 23 local FM affiliates in seven countries and makes its broadcasts available at no cost to any station that wishes to use them.
