Our purpose here at Redeem Radio is to bring programming that will be a reminder and encouragement to our listeners of what Jesus did for us. Through this station, souls will be saved. We bring you programs in music and in ministry. Whichever you may enjoy, they both have the same meaning. If you enjoy music, music communicates to you about the love of God and what He did and is still doing for us. You receive the same connection by way of ministry as well. We just pray that though this station, someone will be saved. He paid the price so that we may have a right to live free from sin.

Born in North Carolina and raised in West Virginia, Roxie Shamburger is the Godmother of Gospel who was always destined for greatness!
Getting her first break by Dea. Watts from The Road to Glory gospel show on WHCR 90.3fm, she started her 15 year run in radio. She can be found emceeing gospel events from the Carolinas to New York and being the voice of quartet music internationally. She has worked with big names such as Lee Williams and the Spiritual QC’s, the late Tommy Ellison and the Five Singing Stars, and the Canton Spirituals. She also served as the President of the American Gospel Quartet Convention of the New York State Chapter.
After her journey with Dea. Watts, she was referred by a friend to a new station specifically geared towards gospel named Shabach Radio. Unsure if she wanted to pursue this long term, she worked along with the owner and eventually became manager of the new station Redeem Radio.
Inspired by her pastor Rev. Milton Gramby from the Christian Union Baptist Church, and seeing a need for an audience of the sick, the shut in, and those needing prayer; Roxie created The Gospel Journey. Along with her co-host, the program has spread the word of the gospel for 8 years and running. It has grown to outside experiences such as Gospel In The Park.
