For Immediate Release
TUCSON, AZ (April 25, 2021) — Family Life Radio (FLR) afternoon host and WUGN general manager Peter Brooks is retiring after serving the ministry for 44 years.
After spending most of his 48-year radio career with FLR, Brooks filled a variety of show host positions from mornings to afternoons, while also managing stations in Michigan and New Mexico.
Brooks shared on his experience, “The Bible says, ‘There is a time for everything and a season for every activity.’ My broadcasting season is ending, and the time to hang up my headphones has arrived. Over the decades, the programming and music may have changed; but the heart, mission and integrity of Family Life Radio and its leadership have never changed. And through those years, my co-workers and listeners have truly been family. Words cannot express my thankfulness to God and this ministry for the blessings I have experienced serving here.”
Peter will be greatly missed not only by the ministry’s staff but also by listeners. “Peter has faithfully dedicated most of his life to serving the Lord through Family Life Radio. He has been a pioneer and one of the backbones of this ministry. I am extremely grateful for his dedication and ‘here to serve attitude!’ I join thousands of Family Life Radio listeners who will miss Peter greatly,” said Mike Kankelfritz, director of programming.
Evan Carlson, ministry president, said, “Peter Brooks is the embodiment of Matthew 25:23. When I think of a good and faithful servant, Peter’s name is at the top of that list. There is no debate, Family Life Radio will forever be impacted by the excellence and passion that Peter brought to this ministry. We wish him the absolute best in this next chapter of his life.”
Peter’s final day with the ministry will be Friday, May 7, 2021. He plans to travel and spend time with family. While it will be hard to replace the role Peter served, FLR is currently accepting applications for an on-air host position through their website.
Family Life Radio operates 41 stations in 11 states with an expanding worldwide online audience. The Intentional Living radio program is heard nationwide and conducts marriage and family events throughout the year.
