MEET RUSS WHITNAH
Russ has been the face of Philadelphia’s Christian radio since 1994. His broadcast career started in 1972 as a sales rep for the campus radio station while he was attending Oklahoma State University. Prior to joining Salem Media Group, he held sales positions at KMOD in Tulsa, OK, and KTOK in Oklahoma City, and leadership positions in Colorado Springs, CO; Harrisburg, PA; and the QUAD Cities during a broadcast career spanning 44 years. You would be hard pressed to find a pastor in the Philadelphia region who doesn’t know Russ.
As one of the founding board members of Mission Community Church, Russ’ vast experience with churches in the Northeast coupled with his genuine and caring personality provides Mission with a invaluable leader. His love for God propels him to do all he can to ensure the next generation is ready to lead the church.
Now transitioning into retirement, Russ looks forward to devoting more time to his wife, Trish, his parents, and enjoying his children and 14 grandchildren.
