From zero to more than eighty stations in a few short months! It's no small achievement for MONITORADIO— the public broadcast service of The Christian Science Monitor. This weekly one-hour program was announced in the February 1984 issue of The Christian Science Journal. Since the program first went on the air in January, more than eighty public radio stations have decided to carry it—an amazingly quick start for such a venture when compared with the launching of other new programs.

The program is distributed by American Public Radio, a network of over 260 nonprofit, public broadcasting stations committed to finding, funding, and distributing quality radio programs. Research about the Monitor uncovered a strong similarity between Monitor readers and public radio listeners as to their interests, concerns, and activities. So public radio has been a natural way for the Monitor to extend its constructive, caring approach to the electronic media.

This is the end of the issue. Ready to explore further?
