Christian stations, groups and networks are targeted by a new association that wants to demonstrate the impact of Christian music radio and help create a strong brand image for the format. The group, Christian Music Broadcasters, was formed by 40 people who met in Orlando this month. Tim McDermott of KSBJ(FM) in Houston was elected interim board chair. A task force of the National Christian Radio Alliance, which is part of the Gospel Music Association, is working during to incorporate a 501-C3 entity, according to a statement from the group. The group said it will work with organizations like NRB and RAB to coordinate events, and it plans an informal gathering at the NAB Radio Show in Seattle. Official elections are planned for April.
