Ep. 30: A Conversation with WORLD’s Michael Reneau

I’m Warren Smith and I’d like to welcome you to the MinistryWatch podcast.  Here at MinistryWatch we bring you news about Christian ministries, as well as the latest in charity and philanthropy, all designed to help us become better stewards of the resources God has entrusted to us.

Regular listeners to the program know that last week we began these “MinistryWatch Extra” episodes.  We will continue our regular Friday weekly roundup episodes.  Those are episodes I co-host with Natasha Smith.  But these MinistryWatch Extra episodes are a chance for us to “go deep,” you might say, with one of our editorial partners.

Today, I’m pleased to have on the program Michael Reneau.  Michael is the Deputy Editor of WORLD Magazine.  He came to WORLD after a successful tenure as an award-winning editor at The Greeneville Sun, a daily newspaper serving East Tennessee.

In this episode, we peek under the hood of the WORLD editorial process.  And we discuss some stories that have been of mutual interest to WORLD and to MinistryWatch, including the story of Jerry Falwell, Jr., and Liberty University.

To find out more about WORLD Magazine and the stories we discussed today, go to www.wng.org.  To find out more about MinistryWatch, go to www.MinistryWatch.com

The producers for today’s program are Rich Roszel and Steve Gandy.   We get database, technical, and editorial support from Cathy Goddard, Stephen DuBarry, Christina Darnell, and Casey Sudduth.

Until next time, may God bless you.
