Former Air1 Radio personality Brant Hansen to become “Storyteller” for non-profit
July 21, 2014 – LEMOYNE, PA. – CURE International announced today the hire of Brant Hansen as “Storyteller.” Brant joins CURE after over 20 years in Christian radio, most recently serving as afternoon host on the Air1 Radio Network.
For Hansen, the move is a dream come true. He explained, “This is a dream job for me. I get to travel the world and play with little kids. Crayons? Puppets? I’ve got those. I’m ready for this.”
Hansen is no stranger to CURE, having partnered in the past with the organization for on-air fundraising campaigns. “What CURE does gives me chills. Always has, since the first time I visited their hospital in Afghanistan. Jesus healed people and proclaimed the Kingdom of God. That’s what CURE does,” Hansen said. He continued, “I’m a skeptic by nature, and still long to see, ‘Is God still here? Where is He?’ When I see the little lives changed by CURE, I see that He’s very much alive, doing what He’s always done, and going where people are desperate for Him.”
In his role as Storyteller, Hansen will communicate through a variety of media, including blogs, speaking engagements, and, radio, relating the stories of the people that CURE helps every day. “My friend, Brant Hansen, is joining the CURE family this week to help share the stories of the children in our hospitals around the world,” said Dale Brantner, President and CEO of CURE. “I continue to be amazed how the Lord brings passionate people to CURE to help us heal kids and tell them and their families about Jesus.”
A graduate of the University of Illinois School of Journalism, Hansen has been on the radio for over twenty years, both as a talk show host and as a host in the contemporary Christian music sector. In addition, Hansen’s first book, Unoffendable: How Just One Change Can Make All of Life Better, is scheduled to be released by Thomas Nelson Publishers in April 2015.
