From Nic Anderson, General Manager at AM980 The Mission: Dear Twin Cities Community, It’s with a heavy heart that I announce that Paul Ridgeway, host of AM 980 The Mission’s On The Way w/ Ridgeway left this earth on Saturday morning (May 13) to go home and be with our Lord.

NEW COMMITMENTS FOR THE NEW YEAR Well it’s that time of year again when, in a fit of optimism, many of us make great promises to ourselves about what we’re going to do in the New Year that we usually abandon sometime around the second week in January.

Come, see the place where He was lying. – Matthew 28:5-6 O death, where is your victory?
