American Family Radio Hosts Will Keep Voters Up to Date on Election Night
Live Coverage on Nearly 200 Stations Will Inform Listeners of Red and Blue States, Plus Regional Election Results As They Come In
TUPELO, Miss.—American Family Radio (AFR, www.afr.net) will provide listeners around the country with live election coverage on Tuesday, as voters choose the next Commander-in-Chief, along with significant congressional and state races.
AFR, a division of the American Family Association (AFA, www.afa.net) will welcome hosts Tim Wildmon, AFA president; Ed Vitagliano, AFA executive vice president; and Bryan Fischer, host of “Focal Point.” The three will keep listeners updated throughout the evening as election results come in. Coverage begins at 6 p.m. CT tomorrow on all of AFR’s nearly 200 stations.
“We hope Americans will join AFR’s familiar voices for this important election night commentary,” Wildmon said. “First and foremost, AFA encourages voters to get to the polls at this crucial time in our nation’s history and make their voices heard. So many issues are paramount in this election, and the American Family Association will report on them from the pro-family perspective that has been the basis of our organization for four decades.”

American Family Association (AFA,) a non-profit 501(c3) organization, was founded in 1977 by Donald E. Wildmon. Since then, AFA has been on the frontlines of America’s culture war. The original name of the ministry was National Federation for Decency but was changed to American Family Association in 1988. Today, AFA is one of the largest and most effective pro-family organizations in the country with nearly a million online supporters and approximately 160,000 subscribers to the AFA Journal, the ministry’s monthly magazine. In addition, AFA owns and operates nearly 200 radio stations across the country under the American Family Radio banner.
Other divisions of AFA include American Family Radio, the AFA Foundation and OneNewsNow.com, an online news provider syndicated around the world. AFA maintains activist websites such as OneMillionMoms.com, which rallies Christian activists to contact companies asking them to drop their advertising from objectionable TV shows, and OneMillionDads.com, which equips men to fulfill their God-given role of leadership. AFA websites average over 6 million unique visitors and 30 million hits per year. AFA uses all these means to communicate an outspoken, resolute, Christian voice throughout America.
