A BRIEF HISTORY OF BIBLE MEDITATIONS

On October 1, 1949, the churches of Christ in this area signed a contract with WOHI to begin the broadcast that we now know as Bible Meditations. Carl Finley was the first speaker on the program. For a period of time, congregations at East Liverpool, Lisbon, Tomlinson Run, and Chester cooperated in presenting the program. Bible Meditations was discontinued on September 26, 1966 on a daily basis. During the next few years, the St. Clair Avenue Church of Christ continued with their Sunday program. The five-day a week program returned on December 30, 1974, with East Liverpool and Chester supporting it. In August 1975, the Chester congregation assumed the full obligation of the program. Some of the speakers in addition to Carl Finley have been Cecil Dotson, F.S. Harper, Charlie Hendershot, Tom Butterfield, Gary Vaught, Jack Duty, R.B. Riffle, Richard Brewer, Glen Logston, Erman Hager, A.M. Gillespie, Frank Higginbotham, and Jeremy Main. In addition, a large number of guest speakers have appeared on the program throughout its history.
