John Tesh

Weeknights: 7pm – 12am
Sunday 12pm-5pm

The impetus for John’s radio show was Tesh’s wife, actress Connie Sellecca,
whose nightstand was covered with issues of Oprah’s Magazine, “O”.

“We wanted to create a show for people like her, who don’t have time to read all
that, but are interested in being better in everything they do,”
 he
says.
“There is so much information out there, but not enough information about how to
find it, and where to go with it. The idea was to create a business where we
could be curators who pick and choose the information that we think our audience
would like to hear about. If you couldn’t get to those magazines, we, along with
the researchers we hired, could do it for you. I call it
 Intelligence
For Your Life.
People have called me the “Oprah of radio”, but the difference is that our
pieces are sometimes very short, like two minutes, or even 25 seconds—all geared
at motivating listeners to move forward…it’s all about passion and purpose.

If something I share can help save someone’s marriage, inspire someone to go to
the doctor to get checked out, or spend more time with their kids, I’ve done my
job.”

Listen
 to Nights with John Tesh every weeknight from 7pm – 12am and Sundays 12pm-5pm.
