Mormon Tabernacle Choir Program is Promoted at Local Convention

Music and the Spoken Word program will be shown throughout the Christmas season on SABC-2!

Executives from Bonneville Distribution in Salt Lake City Utah attended the DISCOP Africa Convention in Sandton to promote the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's weekly program, Music and the Spoken Word. This convention is held twice each year and gives companies an opportunity to promote their broadcasting content.

Gregg Garber and Terry Hritz, from Bonneville Distribution, travel around the world promoting this inspirational program to various broadcasting stations, and were thrilled to be back in Johannesburg for this year's conference. 

Bonneville Distribution is part of Deseret Management Corporation and provides distribution services for the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Music and the Spoken Word has been broadcast for the past few years on SABC-2, to the delight of audiences throughout their viewing areas. In fact, their programming director, Roma Thompson, recently had the opportunity to visit Salt Lake City during the Church's General Conference, and was able to sing with the world-reknowned choir during their weekly rehearsal. She was also allowed to sit in the broadcast booth, seeing first-hand how the production takes place.


This inspirational program is the longest-running uninterrupted network broadcast in the world and has been on the air for over eighty-six years and 4,479 weekly broadcasts.
