The Bible Broadcasting Network (BBN) is a listener-supported global Christian radio network staffed and headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina. The programming consists of 50% outside ministries, 30% music and 20% BBN-produced programs.[citation needed] The network was founded in 1968 by its president, Lowell Davey, who also hosts a BBN program called Perspective. Network non-music content includes prayer times, children's programs, Bible teaching, teen programs, and family guidance programs. The network was born out of Davey's failed offer to buy a radio station in Norfolk, Virginia. The company was incorporated and on March 28, 1969, bought bankrupt WYFI and began broadcasting on Oct. 2, 1971, at 5 p.m.[1]

The station plays all-traditional Christian music, including vocalists, choirs, and instrumentalists. BBN's mission statement is "to get the Word of God into the hearts and minds of as many people as possible using the most efficient means." Doctrinally, the programming is conservative evangelical in approach. BBN also avoids programming geared towards "signs and wonders", "charismatic" theology, and "prosperity theology".[who?]

Stations[edit]

BBN owns and operates 44 full-power stations and 87 low-power translators in 31 states.[2] They also operate AM and FM radio stations in 14 countries of North and South America.[citation needed] BBN also broadcasts around the world full-time via streaming on the internet in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Korean, Japanese, German, and Russian.[citation needed] It is estimated that these stations reach over 200 million people.[who?]
