Inspired, the gospel music show

Inspired, the gospel music show, is not your grandmother’s church music. Aired Sunday mornings between 6 and 8, this show combines the classic hymns that are a vital part of worship services everywhere, with contemporary Christian music and songs produced by Canadian singers, especially East Coast artists. But the music is only half the message. Inspired host Ken Sanders offers up a number of good news stories each week meant to uplift and inspire you, the listener. These inspiring stories are all about positive things that are occurring around the world every day. Ken presents a series of random acts of kindness that have not only a local impact but a global one as well. If you would like to contribute to a future episode of Inspired by suggesting a song or two, or you have an inspiring good news story that you want to share just contact us by email.

About Ken Sanders

Originally from Vancouver B.C, Ken now resides in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. They have three daughters, two sons-in-law and one grandson. Ken started his love affair with radio while in the Canadian Forces in Cold Lake Alberta where there was a community radio station on the base. After about two years at CHCL in Cold Lake Ken was offered an on air position in St Paul Alberta doing afternoons, and later Kitimat BC doing the morning show. After about 18 months Ken returned to his military career and was posted to Greenwood Nova Scotia where he immediately found a gig for the Summer doing midnights at the radio station in Kentville. Eventually Ken left his life in radio behind. Ken is a lifetime member of the Salvation Army and is the Corps Sergeant Major (the equivalent of a Deacon in other churches) in Dartmouth. In the background he has always felt the desire to return to broadcasting in some form. Ken joined 97.5 FM CIOE as the host of Inspired, the gospel music show, in August of 2015 where he is now blessed to combine his faith with his love of radio into a single dynamic and inspiring package.
