The Bible Broadcasting Network (BBN) is a listener-supported global Christian radio network staffed and headquartered in Charlotte, NC. The programming consists of 50% outside ministries, 30% music and 20% BBN produced programs. The network was founded in 1968 by its president, Lowell Davey, who also hosts daily prayer times, children's programs, Bible teaching, teen programs, and family guidance programs on the network. The network was born out of Davey's failed offer to buy a radio station in Norfolk, Virginia. The company was incorporated and on March 28, 1969, bought bankrupt WYFI and began broadcasting on Oct. 2, 1971, at 5 p.m.
