The Good News Broadcasting Society, Secunderabad (Back to the Bible International's national partner in India) has a first-time offer by government-owned FM Radio Station to air gospel programming from Hyderabad, the capital city of Andhra Pradesh, India.
A new broadcast in English has been aired through FM Channel 101.9 MHz (A popular government-owned FM station in a city of nearly 7 million people). In the past, only special, stand alone programs had been allowed on local radio (e.g. on Christmas and Easter days). A 30-minutes Scripture-based program is now broadcasting once a week from Secunderabad on every Sunday at 5.30 P.M to 6.00 P.M.
For more than 35 years, BTTB broadcasts have been beamed into India from Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation (SLBC). Now, for the very first time, BTTB can reach millions of people with the Gospel from within India on local FM radio outlet.
BTTB program will feature the reading of passages from the Bible interspersed with Christian music. God's Word will now have extraordinary visibility to millions who have little or no alternative contact with the Bible.
According to GNBS/BTTB similar programming model will be used with good success in other major Indian cities-including the national capital Delhi. Presently Scripture passages (and ultimately the Gospel) via radio is broadcasted in three major cities of Andhra Pradesh viz, Hyderabad, Vishakhapatnam and Vijayawada, and BTTB is hopeful that it will open up local radio markets in other cities as well.

Tune into All India Radio's Rainbow Channel 101.9 MHz , Good News through All India Radio (F M Radio) every Sunday at 5.30 P.M to 6.00 P.M.
