Darla Ozanne

Darla is our General Manager, Program Director, and Morning Host

“Although I grew up in church, early in my 20’s I was a self-proclaimed atheist and part of the ‘liberal media.’ As a News Reporter, I had gotten where I wanted to be in my career, but ironically I still felt so empty. I remember sitting in my apartment late one night and crying out, ‘God, if you’re real, let me know.’ It is hard to explain, but there was an almost tangible love and peace that surrounded me, and at that point I knew that I knew God was real. I surrendered my life and career to Him that night, but since my career had almost become my ‘god,’ I planned on walking away from broadcasting altogether. Little did I know that God had other plans. I ended up producing and co-hosting a Christian TV talk show and eventually God led me back into Christian radio.”

It is such a joy and privilege for me to be able share the love and hope I’ve found in Jesus, and to walk this journey of faith together each day with our listening family. It isn’t always easy, but we know that God truly is working all things together for good.”

Other interests: Bicycling (how cool that God moved us to the “Bicycling capital of America!”), kayaking, photography and painting.

Favorite Bible verse: “It is God who works in you, both to will and to do according to His good purpose.” Philippians 2:13

Favorite Bible Verse: “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame,   and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.” Hebrews 12:1-3

Favorite Bible Verse: “If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.” Colossians 3:1-4
