KFUO Radio names new broadcast director

The Rev. Rodney Zwonitzer has accepted the call from The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) to be director of broadcast services for KFUO Radio.

KFUO is the world’s oldest continuously operating Christian radio station. The LCMS broadcast ministry provides distinctively Lutheran programming via KFUO 850 AM radio and 24/7 Internet streaming that includes the programming of KFUO-AM and classical music via classic99.com.

“It’s time to pump the airwaves with the Word of God,” said LCMS President Rev. Dr. Matthew C. Harrison during Zwonitzer’s recent installation service. “This is a wonderful moment.”

Prior to joining KFUO, Zwonitzer had served as senior pastor of Emmanuel Lutheran Church, Dearborn, Michigan, since 1995. He began his service there as pastor in 1991. He was pastor of Peace and Trinity Lutheran Churches, Trail, British Columbia, Canada, from 1988 to 1991.

In addition to his expertise in pastoral ministry, Zwonitzer brings a tested business sense to his new position. From 1971 to 1975, he was an executive trainee for Westinghouse in Denver. He then served as marketing director/administrator for Storage Technology Corporation in Louisville, Colorado, from 1975-1979, and was product marketing manager for United Technologies/ Mostek of Carrollton, Texas, in the years 1979-1984.
