I am telling everyone I know about you and encouraging my business associates to advertise with you as well! keep up the good work! Your labor is not in vain!

  2. I am the Director of Public Relations for Bethany Baptist Church 959 Bulen Avenue, Columbus. Wanted to begin placing upcoming events on your Community Bulletin Board, but a click on the icon, yields NOT FOUND. Does that mean it is not a working site or am I doing something wrong? Please advise. Thank you and God bless you.

    • Hello Sister Andrea Barrett. How have you been? How’s life after Columbus City Schools? 🙂 To answer your question, I looked at our website and found all was working fine just a moment ago. There may have been a problem that I was not aware about. However, try to submit your event again and it should go through. On our main page scroll down and find “Bulletin Board” and click it. You will be directed to the page to submit your information and make your payment. If there is still a problem you may call the office at 614-824-2550 during business hours, Monday-Friday, 9-5. Thank you and I hope this info will help you to advertise your events with AM1580 WVKO The Praise.

      God Bless,
      Pastor Wayne R. Dandridge

  3. Hello Pastor Wayne…I’m doing well…Retirement is great! 6 Saturdays a week…BUT….they called me out of retirement to work 2 days a week in Employee Relations, but have no fear…I don’t investigate bus drivers anymore..I’ve moved up to teachers and administrators…so you never know…I might pop up somewhere at a school or bus stop near you….Keep on keeping on…and I will try the bulletin board again….could have just been me?????!!!!!! Hope to talk to or see you at the Revival I bet.

    • Great to hear. I’m not worried and Have no fears. LOL!! I do hope that the website works for you. I am planning on being at the Kick-off for the Revival. Not sure how many day sessions I will be able to get to since I am now a trainer.

  4. Congrats on the trainer job. You will be god at it.

  5. Hello, I would like to advertise my Gospel comedy play titled,” My Way Or The Highway”. It will be at the Columbus Performing Arts Center on August 14th. I am from Dayton Ohio. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

  6. I am the host and coordinator of a gospel music series at Natalie’s Coal Fired Pizza and Live Music. The series is the Gospel Soul Brunch. Each first Sunday of the month from 2:30-4 pm. we host a variety of local, regional and national gospel artists.

    I would like to get the word out to gospel artists who are interested in performing as well as to the community who may be potential audience members. We are looking for all varieties of gospel from contemporary to quartet to anything in between. The shows are ticketed and on that basis the artists are compensated.

    Would like to further discuss how we might partner with WVKO to meet both objectives. Thanks so much.

    • Greetings Debra James Tucker. I do first apologize for this delay. When our website was down some time ago we had 1000’s of comments that had to be and have yet to be looked at and/or deleted. My question for you is are you still doing your Gospel Soul Brunch and have you talked with anyone from the station as of yet about it? Feel free to give me a call at 614-290-0479. Are you related to Merlyn and Milton Ruffin?Thank you and God bless you.

      • Hi Wayne,

        Thanks for getting back to me.
        I am indeed still doing the gospel soul brunch at Natalie’s. Each first sunday we feature a different gospel artist. Have not yet been in touch with anyone at the station as I am not sure what the venue’s budget for advertising on radio would be.

        I am Merlyn’s sister. I’m thinking I may have met you when I was a member at Mt Herman some years ago.

        Hope to speak soon.

        • Good Evening Debra, you are quite welcome. What I can do is refer you to someone in our sales department and they can better discuss with you a good plan or at least give you some options to consider. So if you can forward me your number I can have them call you and try to set up a meeting. Yes, that is where we met and knew each other at Mt Herman several years ago over on Windsor Ave.

          God Bless,
          Pastor Wayne
