Nashville, TN, March 2, 2015 - - Bema Media, the leading Christian media group dedicated to ministering to pre-teens and their families, expands their successful iShine countdown to a 2-hour weekly radio show that launches on March 4, 2016. "The Big 25 on iShine Live" will feature the Top 25 Christian pop hits from all across America, along with artist features and interviews throughout.

The show is positioned as an upbeat pop music show that targets youth and their families while having listeners contribute to the show by voting for their favorites online each week. Artists that have been featured on the show cover the Christian pop music scene and include TobyMac, Andy Mineo, For King & Country, The Rubyz, Lecrae, Manic Drive, Hollyn and many more. "The Big 25 on iShine Live" will also offer up the newest music before it hits the national charts. "The Big 25" is voiced by Alexis Slifer, making it the only female hosted Christian countdown show in the industry. Slifer is a former member of tween-pop group The Rubyz and recently launched her own solo music career.

Brad Mathias, President of iShine Live and parent company Bema Media states, "This show has been something iShine has desired to produce for a few years now. Offering up an upbeat Christian music program for radio stations to add to their lineup that glorifies God is a passion of ours - without losing its edge." Mathias continues, "Our hope is that tweens, teens and their parents would receive "The Big 25 on iShine Live" as a place for interaction, music that the whole family can listen to, and solid programming."

The show will be Executive Produced by longtime Christian music ambassador and former Radio & Records (Billboard) Christian music editor Rick Welke. "We've been morphing this show over the past year on Radio iShine into something special, and now believe that it is ready for radio channels all over the country," shares Welke. "It's upbeat, fast-paced, and champions music that Christian music lovers are gravitating towards right now, especially with more Christian CHR pop-focused stations signing on the air recently. Even though its pointed at a younger demographic, we've already had parents reach out to us and thank us for developing this much needed music alternative outlet. It's already a hit!"

Radio outlets that wish to carry "The Big 25 on iShine Live" or desire to hear a demo of the show can reach out to Rick Welke directly at rick@ishinelive.com. iShine is a faith-based ministry and media company that looks and feels a lot like a Christian version of Disney. iShine seeks to be a positive influence to this generation by pointing them to the truth of God as found in the Holy Scriptures and towards the sacred Heritage of Faith and Family.

iShine Media's mission: iShine is a Christian media group dedicated to ministering to pre-teens and their families.
