Sandra Hendricks, Administrative Assistant

“Good morning … Carolina Radio Group”. The pleasant voice you hear when calling “Heaven Radio”, WHVN belongs to Administrative Assistant, Sandra Hendricks. She’s greeted WHVN callers since September, 2006. Sandra prayed for a suitable “ministry job” close to her home and God answered her prayer. On the personal side, Sandra is married to Charlotte native Jackson Hendricks, whom Sandra truly considers to be her “teammate in the Lord”. Sandra has one adult daughter, Melissa, who resides in Lincolnton, N.C. She enjoys church, reading the Bible, “organizing”, walking, encouraging others and creating cards/sentiments and poetry. Thanks to Sandra’s thoughtfulness … and a talent for preparing creative cards, WHVN staff members receive the royal treatment as birthdays roll around. Sandra is a valued WHVN team member.

Darlene Conder, Board Operator

Darlene walked into our radio station ‘providentially’ in September of 2007 asking if we had any work! We ‘just happened’ to have an opening for a Board Operator; and with her Gaston College credits in ‘radio/TV broadcasting & announcing’, …well, it was a perfect fit! Darlene’s been one of our most loyal and dependable employees!
Chris Preslar, Board Operator

Chris Preslar joined our team after completing his studies at the Carolina School of Broadcasting, in October of 1999! In spite of the ebb & flow of our changing economy, & having undergone many cuts during the ‘recession’ of 2008, Chris has proved his loyalty to radio broadcasting! He landed a job on Hank Hanegraaff’s staff for The Bible Answer Man broadcast; and indirectly stayed connected to us – working for one of our own clients! Chris has circled back and was again on staff at WCGC-1270 (Sister station of WHVN until Oct. 2018)! His knowledge and experience with WCGC continues to keep him alongside the new format! Besides working in radio (his first love!) Chris enjoys karaoke, trips to the beach, time with family & friends and the legendary “Elvis Pressley”!
