Beasley announces 8th "Christmas Across the Lands"


Randy Sherwyn, PD of Beasley’s WJPT-FM Ft. Myers, FL, will host the eighth annual "Christmas Across the Lands," a 12-hour radio Christmas show that airs mainly on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day in markets across America and overseas.  The concept of this event originated eight years ago on Southwest Florida’s B 103.9 WXKB-FM when Sherwyn, in the spirit of the holidays and with the thousands of troops stationed overseas in mind, devised a heartfelt way to bring a little holiday cheer and warmth to U.S. troops stationed overseas who were away from their families during the Holiday Season.

Additionally, the show will air in international territories including Canada, West Indies, Cayman Islands, New Zealand, Dubai, Sri Lanka and the Philippines.  With the support of the American Forces Radio Network (AFRN) and the Canadian Forces Network/Europe (CFN), "Christmas Across the Lands" will be heard by military personnel stationed in over 175 countries around the globe including "Freedom Radio" in Iraq.
