In an effort to strengthen its core ministries, Moody Bible Institute announced changes within its broadcasting division.The reorganization will take place within the next few months.
Changes include regionalization of stations in Tennessee, Florida and Indiana; the shutdown of the Moody Audio Ministry on June 30; the closure of MBN Broadcast Services, including ceasing domestic and international distribution of MBN programming via U.S. mail (satellite delivery will continue); and a department name change from MBN Network Development to MBN Distribution Development.
The latter will allow the agency to function in-house, handling all affiliate relations and placement of MBN programs, it stated.
Perry Straw, a 38-year Moody veteran who served as broadcast services manager, will take over as head of the MBN Distribution Development.
"The broadcasting division realignment decisions are part of a second and final stage of our initiative to keep MBI on a solid footing as we move into the future," stated MBI President Dr. Joe Stowell.
Other changes include ceasing of publication of Moody magazine following the July/August issue and the reconfiguration and move of Moody Aviation to Spokane, Wash. MBI will also dump its retail business.
