Every week, fans of our long-running radio programme Planet Sport can tune in to hear the show on any one of 70 radio stations in 20 countries around the world. They can also listen online at www.planetsport.tv and via the free Planet Sport app.

On radio, the show is broadcast in Australia, Ireland, the UK and a dozen or so countries in Africa.

And, Planet Sport is also broadcast on three stations in the Caribbean.

GNFM 96.3 is situated in St George’s, the capital of Grenada, an island at the southern end of the Lesser Antilles. Grenada is slightly smaller than the Isle of Wight with a population of 110,000.  Broadcast time: 11:30 Saturday;

Radio Maranatha 100.3 FM is based on the small island of Saint Martin in the French West Indies.  The island is just a little larger than Guernsey and despite its small size is split into two territories with French and Dutch governance. The total population is about 80,000.  Radio Maranatha went on air in 1994 and today the station reaches across French and Dutch Saint Martin and the islands of the Eastern Caribbean through radio and internet broadcasting. Broadcast time: 07:00 Friday;

Voice of Life ZGBC Radio is situated in the Commonwealth of Dominica, an island about 1.5 times the size of the Isle of Man and part of the Windward Islands. The station reaches the South Eastern Caribbean across a network of frequencies.

This week’s Planet Sport show considers whether Twenty20 cricket will be adopted as an Olympic sport and hears from former South African women’s international footballer Sdu Mthethwa (left talking to Planet Sport reporter Tom Ellis) about her pastoral role among elite athletes, sharing her faith and helping them to cope with the high pressure of competition.

We give thanks for these three stations broadcasting Planet Sport in the Caribbean and pray that listeners will be drawn to Christ through the programmes.
