How Focus on the Family Is Softening Its Radio Programming
As James Dobson, the man who founded the conservative Focus on the Family ministry in Colorado Springs, stepped down from his pulpit and Focus-produced radio show to start an independent radio program with his son, Ryan, one question lingered: How would Focus proceed without him? The path is now becoming apparent. Focus' approach will be less stern, much more touchy-feely. As the Colorado Springs Gazette writes: "Dr. Phil and Oprah, look out. Here comes Yvette Maher." Maher has launched a new Webcast called "Your Family--Live," a two-hour program formatted like a daytime talk show that includes everything from heart-wrenching human stories to humor. "It is a new day for Focus," says Maher, Focus' senior vice president of family and community. "We will talk about anything and everything." The show aims to reach a younger audience, particularly new parents, and will stay away from hot-button issues that were Dobson favorites, including abortion and gay marriage.
