Joni and Friends Radio Program

The Joni and Friends Radio Program is a four-minute broadcast hosted by Joni Eareckson Tada. The inspirational program airs each weekday, sharing a biblical perspective on a wide range of topics. Joni shares encouragement, tackles issues related to disability awareness, and provides uniquely personal insights into life’s tougher questions. Her contagious joy and unwavering faith provide hope for those who find themselves faced with life’s crippling blows.

Joni also hosts a shortened program similar to Joni and Friends called Diamonds in the Dust. This one-minute program offers nuggets of encouragement to listeners worldwide. Last year, Diamonds in the Dust won “Radio Program of the Year” from the National Religious Broadcasters.
