TORI UPDATE: An Open Letter | For Ongoing Updates

PERSONAL INFORMATION

 

Timmy D.

  • Birthday: June 23

  • Family Status: Wife: Christina (married Aug 24, 1996); sons Timmy & Tobias, and daughters Tessa & Victoria. Is the quiver full yet? Not sure . . . we are interested in adopting possibly! Or having quadruplets

  • Testimony: I am very thankful to have grown up in a Christian home all of my life. My mom & dad surrounded us with family devotions, singing in the home, and as we got older, encouraged us to spend time one-on-one with the Lord -- something I latched onto around age 12. Although there are many great things we can do with the time God gives us, I believe there’s nothing more important than taking time to be with Him. The devil also knows that, which is why I can name a whole list of "legitimate" reasons why I "don’t have time for being with Him." That’s why my one prayer request I listed is to take that time with Him . . . to not live on past time spent with Him, but to enjoy Him in new ways regularly.

  • Most Embarrassing Radio Experience: Nothing comes to mind. Every show is stellar! ;-)

  • Anything Else of Interest: I love being in touch with listeners and getting their feedback . . . so e-mail early & often! timmyd@wordfm.org . . . I love playing softball . . . My wife Christina, my "Brazilian babe," is a true gift from God . . . From 1996-2004 I hosted the morning show on 990 WZZD out of Philadelphia along with our current traffic guy John Butterworth. Some of you who listen to the Word FM were able to listen to that show as well. In April 2004 the station changed its format, and although I was offered a very good job with the company, I decided to pursue things with the Word FM and see if continuing the on-air radio ministry I'd come to love so much would be in God's plan. The first month or two I more or less "hung out" in the studio with station manager Dave Baker as both of us wanted to test the waters and see if we had a match, so to speak. Initially, things went pretty well, but there were some listeners who weren't quite sure what to make of me! Although I felt confident we could all get along well in time, I found myself praying on the way to work the morning of June 2, 2004, asking the Lord to confirm one way or the other whether I should continue transitioning to The WORD-FM.

    By the end of the show (in just three hours), seventy people emailed . . . and everyone was very encouraging and welcoming -- just a testimony to God answering my prayer from earlier that morning to affirm that yes, you belong at the Word FM at this time while helping me gain a better understanding of the audience. Honestly, I had heard I might be getting myself into quite a conservative area that wanted things more straight-ahead and not really into kidding around (which is O.K.) . . . but I must admit I was excited to see in those initial e-mails and the thousands since that the Word FM audience can handle laughing and joking around while being balanced enough to be serious at times too.

    Since then, we have had the privilege of adding Heather Hoover, John Butterworth and have gotten to know the audience much more via thousands of calls and e-mails. Keep 'em coming and thanks for being YOU!
