Wayne, with a focus on the heartland.”
BRN’s programming consists of some of the nation’s most recognizable Christian and conservative talk show personalities including Dr. James Dobson of Focus On The Family—one of the top 3 radio programs in the nation; Dr. Richard Land of For Faith & Family—a broadcast that originates from the Southern Baptist headquarters; attorney and judicial advocate Jay Sekulow of Jay Sekulow Live; Rev. Billy Graham, Chuck Swindoll, Charles Stanley and many other national Christian leaders also contribute programming to the network.
