CAMARILLO, Calif., Nov. 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Salem Media Group (NASDAQ: SALM), announced today that it is bringing nearly 500 of its listeners on a historic "Stand with Israel" trip to the Holy Land. The listeners will be joined by Salem Radio Network hosts Dennis Prager and Mike Gallagher, who will both broadcast their shows on two days in front of hundreds of those listeners.
The shows will broadcast from the Dan Hotel on Monday, November 9th and Tuesday, November 10th. Gallagher will air 9am-Noon ET and Prager will air Noon-3pm ET.
"America and Israel have had a special bond since Israel was originally founded," said Salem President of Broadcast Media, Dave Santrella. "Our hosts have enormous affection for this country. We decided to invite our listeners to join some of our hosts on a legendary trip to the Holy Land." Santrella added, "Nearly 500 of Salem's listeners who are devoted to our stations and our hosts will be joining us on two trips. We are honored to lead this group on a trip they will never forget."
"Ever since having the privilege of broadcasting from Israel 16 years ago, I've really longed for the chance to go back," said SRN host Mike Gallagher. "To be able to experience the Holy Land with hundreds of listeners is humbling and exciting. Thanks to this partnership between Salem and Genesis Tours, I'm blessed to be able to fulfill yet another item on my bucket list."
"It is an honor to accompany some nearly 500 listeners to Israel," said SRN host Dennis Prager. "Unlike Secretary of State John Kerry and, for that matter, far too many academics, most Salem Radio listeners know the difference between right and wrong," added Prager. "Salem listeners are going to Israel to demonstrate in the most powerful and personal way their support of Israel -- the only country in the world targeted for annihilation."
Dennis Prager has made 20 previous trips to Israel, many of them with listeners. This is Mike Gallagher's second trip.
