Summary: The radio as a means of conveying the evangelical message
The present study describes the peculiarities and complexity of radio communication, especially the characteristic elements of a Christian radio station. The study addresses in turn the specificity and particularities of radio communication, as well as the editorial lines of European Christian radio stations, mainly those pertaining to the Romanian Orthodox Church.
This research has been carried out starting from a theoretical analysis of radio communication, presenting the landmarks in the history of radio, a history of Romanian radio, then describing representative Christian radio stations in Europe and the European Conference of Christian Radio Stations (CERF).
Further on, it presents the six radio stations of the Romanian Orthodox Church: Trinitas (1998), Renasterea (1999), Reîntregirea (2001), Ortodoxia (2003), Invierea (2004), Dobrogea (2005) and Lumina (2005). The final part of the study defines the “editorial line” concept and provides a few examples of editorial lines of representative European Christian radio stations. According to their character, they are called: pious, identitary and frontier.
General, commercial or niche radio stations? What types of formats are appropriate for conveying the Christian message on radio? Which are the adequate editorial lines for this goal? In order to be efficient, radio communication with Christian contents must comply with mediatic rules, without impoverishing the complexity of the evangelical message. Not a very easy task, since radio is among the proximity media, intended to develop communion through communication and render indispensable services to our society, in its search for meaning and identity.
