FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
TUCSON, AZ (December 29, 2021) — As of January 1, 2022, president of Family Life Radio (FLR), Evan Carlson, will also assume the role of chief executive officer (CEO). His father, Dr. Randy Carlson, has been CEO since 1995.
FLR has humble roots dating back to 1966, starting its first broadcast in the basement of the home of Warren and Char Bolthouse, Evan’s grandparents. “It’s a joy for me to be able to continue forward with our mission of reaching and equipping our listeners to live a more intentional life in Christ,” said Evan.
Dr. Carlson will continue in his role as founder and host of the ministries’ Intentional Living program and as the chairman of FLR’s board of directors. “The Board has great confidence in Evan’s leadership, training and experience, and it’s an honor for me to see the ministry continuing into a third generation,” said Dr. Carlson.
Several years ago, FLR’s board of directors appointed a leadership succession committee to assess future needs for the ministry. After completing their work, the succession committee recommended Evan’s appointment as president, which began in November 2018. Evan has an MBA from Grand Canyon University and has served in several different roles at FLR, including as Vice President of Marketing and as Executive Vice President.
