Larry Ross clients.

Please take a look and let us know which newsmakers you would like to meet. Remember, the best time slots go quickly, so please contact us soon.


Answers in Genesis
An apologetics organization, Answers in Genesis (AiG) is defending the authority of the Bible from the very first verse. Dedicated to enabling Christians to defend their faith and to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ effectively, AiG focuses particularly on providing answers to questions surrounding the book of Genesis, as it is the most-attacked book of the Bible. This past May, AiG opened the world class Creation Museum in suburban Cincinnati to defend the biblical view of creation, and has already seen more than 300,000 visitors.

AiG founder and President Ken Ham is available for interviews Sunday, March 9 and Monday, March 10 regarding the museum and ministry as well as his recently published book, "Darwin’s Plantation: Evolution’s Racist Roots."


CURE International
A U.S.-based medical charity devoted to healing physically disabled children throughout the developing world, CURE International celebrates its 10th anniversary this spring with the opening of its 10th hospital, this one in Ethiopia. Founded by Dr. Scott Harrison, orthopedic surgeon and entrepreneur, and his wife Sally, a nurse, CURE has grown to become the largest provider of specialty surgical care in the developing world.

The vision for CURE began in 1998 after the Harrisons traveled to Malawi on a medical mission and realized how they could help poor children in countries suffering from a lack of skilled medical care. CURE International:

  • Establishes teaching hospitals, improving not only the health of local residents, but their level of healthcare, knowledge and skill, and the local economy and future prospects for the local residents it employs.
  • Primarily targets physical disabilities such as club foot and cleft lip/palate, which are virtually non-existent in the developed world, but which continue to bring devastation and despair to Third World families.
  • Responds to the needs of the communities, for example, establishing an OB/GYN Fellowship at its Afghanistan hospital, due to the country’s extremely high maternal mortality rate.
  • Recently broke ground on a new cardiac hospital to serve Palestinian children in Bethlehem.

Dr. Harrison is primarily available for interviews on Monday morning, March 10 during NRB.


Compassion International
Compassion is one of the world’s largest Christian child-development organizations, working with more than 65 denominations, 4,000 indigenous church partners and 900,000 children in Africa, Asia, Central and South America and the Caribbean.

Each year, Aglow women serve an estimated 17 million people worldwide through prayer, evangelism, and works of compassion. Aglow recently launched a prayer strategy for Europe called “Operation SPEC” in response to the Islamization of the continent as well as anti-Semitism.

Since 1967, Aglow has focused on three mandates:
1. Male and Female reconciliation
2. Bringing awareness of Islam to the Body of Christ, while loving the Muslim people
3. Standing with and supporting the nation of Israel and the Jewish people

For more than 30 years, Dallas-based stewardship consulting firm RSI has been partnering with congregations as they launch and navigate capital stewardship campaigns. Through this, RSI has recognized a felt need and developed a desire to help churches go beyond finances and focus on the true meaning of stewardship. That’s why RSI has pooled its expertise to create "REVEALED: The Life You’ve Only Imagined." This unique 30-day, small-group study allows Christians to dive deep into the principles of stewarding time, talent and treasure together.

Doug Turner, president of RSI, a former church pastor and a commonly sought-after stewardship expert, is available Saturday, March 8 and Sunday, March 9 to discuss stewardship, the stigma behind it and how churches are moving past it.

Focused on helping people deal with life issues, Corporate Chaplains of America has nearly 100,000 associates under chaplain care and has never encountered a complaint regarding overstepping the faith boundaries of a client.

"One Month to Live: Thirty Days to a No Regrets Life"
"How would you make each day meaningful? How would you relate to others differently? What would you do to make the rest of your life really matter?" These are questions posed by authors and pastors Kerry and Chris Shook in their new book released Feb. 5. With eye-opening insights and soul-inspiring truths, "One Month to Live" teaches people to find meaning and clarity by embracing the fact that their time on earth is limited. Not only do the Shooks encourage people to pursue what really matters, the book’s powerful messages, divided into four weekly parts, can help readers do things that will last beyond the grave, leaving a lasting legacy. The Shooks’ transforming messages have already helped thousands of people who have embraced the “One Month to Live” concept. To date, over 500 churches have expressed interest in the 30-day challenge.
