Joni and Friends Radio Program

Welcome to my radio page!

I can’t believe it’s been almost 35 years since I started radio. I remember the day I was asked to consider doing a radio program. It was back in 1981 when Al Sanders, the founder of Ambassador Advertising Agency, visited my home. I was on bed rest with stubborn pressure sores, and I didn’t think I had it in me to do a radio program. But Al believed in me — and in how Jesus would encourage many through this “broken vessel.”

And now, I praise God for the many ways our radio ministry has grown. Want to learn more about how it all got started? Watch this video in which Al and I reminisce about those early radio days. And then, browse through our archives — you never know what hidden treasures from God’s Word you’ll find!
