“Beyond Today” TV Update: WORD Network and West Coast


February 15, 2012

WORD Network

On January 20 we reported preliminary results from the new initiative by the United Church of God to air Beyond Today twice a week on the WORD Network. Below is an update of responses received from December 29, 2011, through February 11, 2012, for the following seven programs:

  1. The Day After Christmas
  2. What is the Kingdom of God?
  3. Who Are the Two Witnesses?
  4. Ground Zero Jerusalem
  5. The Church Jesus Built
  6. You Have a Destiny
  7. Tithing – God’s Key to Financial Success

These Beyond Today episodes airing on the WORD Network generated 796 responses via telephone and the Internet. Of these requests 549 came by telephone from viewers in 36 states, the District of Columbia and two Canadian provinces (see below) and 247 were logged via our website from viewers in the following 17 countries:

  1. Aruba
  2. Australia
  3. Bermuda
  4. Cayman Islands
  5. Canada
  6. Ethiopia
  7. India
  8. Italy
  9. Moldova
  10. Panama
  11. Puerto Rico
  12. South Africa
  13. Thailand
  14. Trinidad/Tobago
  15. Ukraine
  16. United Kingdom
  17. United States

Here is a listing of telephone responses logged from viewers on the WORD Network by state/province from December 29, 2012 – February 11, 2012. It’s encouraging to see 37 states and 2 provinces represented:

  • Alabama – 12
  • Arkansas – 3
  • Arizona – 4
  • California – 45
  • Colorado – 3
  • Connecticut – 7
  • Delaware – 3
  • District of Columbia – 3
  • Florida –  36
  • Georgia – 22
  • Illinois –  22
  • Indiana – 8
  • Kansas – 4
  • Kentucky – 2
  • Louisiana – 19
  • Maryland – 24
  • Massachusetts – 3
  • Michigan – 51
  • Minnesota – 3
  • Mississippi – 11
  • Missouri – 6
  • Nebraska – 1
  • Nevada – 3
  • New Jersey – 21
  • New Mexico – 2
  • New York – 48
  • North Carolina – 25
  • Ohio – 27
  • Oregon – 2
  • Pennsylvania – 32
  • South Carolina – 10
  • Tennessee – 9
  • Texas – 30
  • Virginia – 21
  • Washington – 8
  • West Virginia – 2
  • Wisconsin – 10
  • Ontario, Canada – 6
  • Saskatchewan, Canada – 1

We are pleased with the results so far from our efforts on the WORD Network. Response has proved to be very good and our cost per response most reasonable.

West Coast

As of last week’s Beyond Today program, “Tithing – God’s Key to Financial Success,” we concluded our contracts on the ION Network television stations in Los Angeles and San Francisco. An analysis of our more than six-month airing period on these stations has shown that the overall cost per response was higher than expected. We have no current plans to replace these individual stations since our efforts on the WORD Network are bearing good fruit throughout California.

As always, we are grateful for your prayers for God’s blessings as the United Church of God seeks to diligently spread the message of the coming Kingdom of God around the globe.

    • Hi Malcolm,

      Do your get either WGN America or the WORD Network on your cable lineup? Normally WGN America is part of most basic cable packages.

      If you do not get these stations, then you may have to watch Beyond Today online at http://www.beyondtoday.tv instead. This may even be more convenient for you if you have Internet access through your cable TV company too.
