It’s Christmas Eve. No better time to tell you about Gary's gift from God.

Gary Taylor has a lot of friends in the Tennessee Valley. Whether he's working his job at Star Market or on the radio, Gary is a man of faith. We got the chance to spend some time with Gary during his radio show.

A high voltage message spreading the word of God: "I'm a radio DJ doing my show,” Gary Taylor told WAAY 31.

Gary is an announcer on Christian radio station WDJL in Huntsville. Here at Christmas and year round, Gary considers his broadcasting a gift from God. "Radio's always been something I wanted to do,” he told us. “It's been my dream and my heart's desire.”

Gary says every day, he’s living his answered prayer. "I've always wanted to do it and it's been my passion."On- air and off, this airwave warrior constantly praises God. “I try to live for Him and tell others about Him."

Gary’s listeners often tell him he helps strengthen their faith. "I have people come up to me all the time and say, 'Thank you for praying for me and my family.' And that really touches my heart when they do that."

"Gary is a sweet, kind person and his personality shows it and when he's on the air, you feel it,” Dorothy Sandifer told us. “You feel it on the airways." Dorothy owns WDJL. "I'm very proud of it,” she told us. “I thank God that I have the opportunity to own a Christian radio station. Not just a radio station, but a Christian radio station."

She said, "People call in and tell just what God has done for them and they let us know that they appreciate this station. It makes a difference in people's lives here in the Tennessee Valley."

A small radio station with a big purpose: Gary Taylor says you can feel it on the air and in the air. "Every day. Yes. And God's presence is here. This campus is anointed."

You can listen to Gary's radio show on WDJL 1000 AM. It airs Monday and Friday afternoons from 2:30 'til 4:00.
