It's not just a piece of cloth. It's a symbol of the freedom so many (including my father) fought for and the good life we live. It represents the sacrifice of those who served and unites us all as Americans. The flag is a symbol for freedom, equality, and justice.

These are the reasons why every June 14th, we celebrate "Flag Day."

No one better summarized Flag Day than former President Ronald Reagan:

There was even one time I wrote a rap for Frappuccino's ("Yo, Safeway shoppers / Listen to what I have to say / The news I'm gonna share is 'bout to make your day / From three 'til five this ...

Tell a story.  Jesus did it."

And in the opening pages, John MacArthur holds no punches in setting the tone for what he ...

Growing Media Use

We've started a series of blogs which will present and then analyze results from Ambassador's commissioned study on the value of Christian radio.  Our partner in the study, Edison Research, annually has presented survey results (with Arbitron) of general media consumption.  Today, two slides will present insight on radio's piece of the media market.

For many years, there was a fear that on-line and mobile media consumption would erode the audience for traditional broadcast facilities.  However, the slide below indicates that the total time spent listening has actually grown in the last 10 years.

In the spring of 2013, Ambassador commissioned Edison Research to help us ascertain the value that constituents place on radio.  Ultimately, our goal was to use this data to then help ministries with the value they should place on radio.

We chose Edison Research because they’ve conducted annual studies with Arbitron on patterns of media consumption (The Infinite Dial).  We’re going to highlight slides in the weeks to come, but if you’d like to see the whole Ambassador project, you can view the study here.  For our study, Edison spoke with 1,000 people, half were currently ...
