MIAMI, Dec. 18 /Christian Newswire/ -- If your New Years Resolution list includes more time for spiritual growth and personal development, 1360 AM WKAT will be launching a fresh line-up of program resources to help South Florida listeners beginning January 1.

1360 WKAT South Florida’s Christian Talk debuts with some of the nation’s best known experts and Bible scholars including Dr. James Dobson and Pastor Chuck Swindoll. Listeners will learn how to handle relationship and families issues confronting everyday life and deepen your faith using Biblical principles through life-changing messages.

Joe D. Davis, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Salem explained that Salem and its ministry programming partners have long sought a Miami presence to launch its Christian Teaching and Talk programming, the company’s foundational format. “Since entering Miami in 2005, we have looked for an opportunity to offer South Florida listeners quality Christian talk programming.

Miami and Ft. Lauderdale have vibrant local churches and 1360 AM WKAT will be working with the churches to inform and engage the entire Christian community.”
