Carrying live coverage of the three-day Harvest Crusades including artist interviews available nationally via Amb-OS, the 2009 event marks the 20th year the crusade will be held in Southern California.
Artists in attendance this year will be Third Day, The Katinas, Relient K, Skillet, Chris Tomlin and others. Drawing more than 3.8 million to stadiums and arenas around the world since 1990, Greg Laurie, founder of Harvest Crusades, says the message has always remained the same.
"The message I have presented at Harvest Crusade events in Southern California-and around the world-over the past 20 years has not changed, but lives have," said Laurie. "God loves us and wants to have a relationship with each one of us."
The nature of live programming has, in the past, posed issues for broadcasting to stations nationally. However, Amb-OS receivers are changing the landscape of the industry.
"This next technology affords us the ability to carry live programming ad hoc. In the past, we had to find windows of time available for satellite programming. Now, we can broadcast whenever there is a meaningful event like the Harvest Crusades," said Jim Sanders, president of Amb-OS Media.
Providing programming in both English and Spanish, obstacles formerly faced by live national programming via satellite are a thing of the past with Amb-OS.
"The Amb-OS technology gives us the accessibility of live national programming whenever we need it with the flexibility of local programming," said Sanders.
Live programming will be provided each night of the crusade at the following times:
- Friday, August 14-7:30 PM
- Saturday, August 15-7:30 PM
- Sunday, August 16-6:00 PM
Stations wanting to air the Harvest Crusades can request permissioning to their receiver for one or all three nights from Amb-OS at programs@Amb-OS.com.
