On the final evening of the National Religious Broadcasters convention, Joni was inducted into the NRB Hall of Fame at the awards dinner. Joni is flanked at the presentation by Rich Bott, chairman, and Dr. Frank Wright, CEO. Amidst a standing ovation, Joni thanked her friends at Ambassador Agency, particularly Al Sanders and Jon Campbell, for planting the vision for the “Joni and Friends” radio program which, this year, celebrates 30 years on the air. “I also want to thank Doug Mazza and the leadership at Joni and Friends for encouraging me to continue in Christian broadcasting,” said Joni after the presentation. Drop Joni a note of congratulations on this blog, and be sure to visit our Radio Page to enjoy listening to several of Joni’s recent programs. From all of us here at the Joni and Friends International Disability Center, we say to our friend, “Congratulations, Joni!”

Joni your voice over the multiple radio stations that carry your program ... (Amazing for 30 years) brings hope and strength as a vast army of Prayer Warriors listen from around the world for a rallying cry to carry on for one more moment ... One more hour ... One more day. Yes my beautiful friend you do belong on that wall of honor because you humble yourself and carry on day after day no matter your condition. With JOY. Thank you for strengthening us all. Love Mama Bunny
