WORLD News Group, publisher of WORLD magazine and producer of WORLD Radio’s The World and Everything in It, has a new audio program called Listening In

Listening In, hosted by Warren Cole Smith, is a conversational program featuring newsmakers and thought leaders that explores the depths of some of the most interesting topics of our day

“Our goal is to explore topics as thoughtfully as possible,” said WORLD Radio Executive Producer Nick Eicher. “It’s more like NPR’s Fresh Air or public television’s Charlie Rose, but with an objective Christian perspective.”

Listening In airs each Friday. The program is available to radio stations via FTP download. For technical details, contact: Jonathan Bailie at

A conversation with radio talk host JJ Jasper

Radio talk show host J. J. Jasper had a great life.  He was a syndicated radio personality, a successful author, the happily married father of five.  His life was so good he could tell jokes about it as a stand-up comic. Then the unthinkable happened.  Following an accident on his family farm near Tupelo, Mississippi, JJ Jasper’s only son Cooper died.  That sent JJ and his wife Melanie into the depths of a grief which never fully leaves, but which over time JJ Jasper has been able to write about.  Today, five years after Cooper’s death, JJ Jasper’s account of that terrible time, and what happened afterward, has been published in the book is Losing Cooper:  Finding Hope To Grieve Well.
