NASHVILLE, Oct. 10 (UPI) -- Following his "Homecoming" concert series, singer Bill Gaither has created and is hosting his own weekly U.S. radio program.

The one-hour weekly program, on the Salem Radio Network, features performances recorded "live" by the "Homecoming" artists on stage at the concert venues. More Than 300 Radio stations are scheduled to carry the show.

"As a young lad growing up in Indiana, I was fascinated with gospel music from listening to it on the radio," singer-producer Gaither said in a statement.

"Radio has always been special to me and now this new show allows me, and our 'Homecoming' artists, to utilize this great medium for yet another outlet to reach millions with the best music in the world, gospel music."

In addition to Salem's independent satellite syndication, Salem's Solid Gospel Radio Network will also feature "Bill Gaither's Homecoming Radio" through its more than 100 market outlets.
