Meet Our Staff

Mike Gilland — Operations Manager & Host of "Afternoons With Mike"

Welcome to The Shepherd! Available now on THREE stations, each part of the MARC Radio group. Our newest station is 1270 AM - WIWA in Orlando. This station is a powerhouse - 25,000 watts daytime! This signal strength enables us to cover the entire Central Florida area.

In the Ocala/Villages area, the Shepherd is heard on 103.5 FM and 720 AM, while Gainesville listeners can hear us on 96.3 FM or 1430 AM.

The Shepherd offers some of America’s best known and loved Bible pastors and teachers including: Dr. Charles Stanley, Dr. David Jeremiah, Dr. Tony Evans, Dr. James Dobson, Dr. Erwin Lutzer, David Zanotti, Pastor Paul Blair, Troy Brewer, and many others.

We also feature some exciting talk shows too, all from a solid biblical perspective – including Dan Celia (an every morning program called “Financial Issues Live”). Dan offers sound investment and financial advice, so critical in the day and age in which we live.

We also offer a LOCAL TALK SHOW - "AFTERNOONS WITH MIKE" - hosted by longtime broadcaster and retired pastor Mike Gilland. This show airs at Monday through Friday at 3:05 PM on all of our stations. It features in-depth interviews with pastors, authors, and other news makers. It is replayed each evening (also Monday through Friday) at 9:05 PM on all stations, following SRN News.

We know the important place that such practical teaching and informative talk holds in our day-to-day lives. Our goal is to bring you the best programs available to meet that need.
