Family Radio Network marketing manager Nina Romero said Harold Camping, a retired civil engineer who built a worldwide following for the nonprofit, Oakland-based ministry he founded in 1958, died at his home on Sunday. She said he had been hospitalized after falling.
Family Radio released a statement that said Camping is “Home with the Lord.” Maybe the Lord can explain to Camping why his predictions were wrong for all these years.
This makes me wonder what the fate of Family Radio will be, now that Camping is no longer with us. Who is running things now? 94.7 FM, the former Newark/New York City home of Family Radio, was sold to Cumulus and is now country formatted “Nash FM.” They have also sold stations in Philadelphia and Washington, DC. If this is enough to keep them financially afloat, the Christian network will continue to exist. However, if not, Family Radio might be facing their own “end times.”
