Educational Media Foundation — parent company of K-LOVE and Air1 Contemporary Christian radio networks — has named Bill Reeves, founder and President of the WTA Group, as CEO.
“God always sends the right person at the right time,” said Alan Mason, interim CEO and President of EMF. “Bill’s unique skill set and personality are a great match with our current and future needs, and his vast media experience complements radio as we take our first step toward becoming a more diversified media ministry.”
“All of us at EMF are excited to welcome Bill into our family,” said Mark Voltmann, EMF Chairman of the Board. “Bill’s love for the Lord and ministry through Christian media is a great fit.”
A number of K-LOVE and Air1 artists who have longstanding relationships with Bill welcomed the news. “When I found out Bill was coming to EMF, I was elated,” said Grammy-nominated musician Nicole C. Mullen. “He’s not just brilliant in business, he has the heart and the character to back it, and that’s a combination that few possess.”
EMF has issued a letter of intent to acquire the WTA Group, which Reeves founded in 2009.
“I’m looking forward to the challenge of this expanded role with EMF,” Reeves said. “K-LOVE and Air1 have tremendous impact on our culture, and I look forward to continuing to grow that impact and reach both through the radio networks and through new media in the future.”
