About the Program

You’ll hear stories of how God is using churches like Champion Forest in Houston to reach hundreds with the gospel of Jesus Christ…

How disaster relief workers brought fast and gracious physical and spiritual help to those affected by deadly tornadoes across the south and midwestern portions of the United States…

Even how God used a 37-pound catfish to send missionaries to the ends of the earth.

Those are the stories we’ll tell on Good News for Today.

The new broadcast is hosted by Baptist Press Editor Brandon Porter. Porter was a pastor for more than 20 years and the former editor of Kentucky Today, the Kentucky Baptist Convention’s news outlet.

There he reported on state and national news, religious liberty issues, tragedy and disaster, and published policy pieces and op-eds. Since 2003, Porter has also hosted a weekly 30-minute teaching and talk program on WKCT in Bowling Green, Kentucky.

“The world needs to hear more good news about our awesome God,” Porter said. “The news industry is typically driven by controversy, conflicts and issues, but Baptist Press has the unique opportunity and ability to share good news stories of our good and loving God.”
