Popular Late-Night Talk Show “Live Prayer With Bill Keller” Set for Major Midway Presence at Florida State Fair Feb. 8-19


JACKSONVILLE, FL (January 30, 2007) --- Popular late-night talk show “Live Prayer With Bill Keller” will be a major presence at this year’s Florida State Fair February 8th through the 19th. Florida businessman Bill Keller, who turned Live into the world’s most successful online outreach and took his Florida-based talk show to a national audience in July 2006, said officials estimate that over 600,000 visitors will pass through the Florida State Fair gates this year. “If those estimates are correct, that means over a half-million people could hear the distinct message of hope that ‘Live Prayer’ has been bringing to individuals all over the world for the past eight years,” said Keller.

Keller noted that “Live Prayer” will have a large big-top style tent set up right on the State Fair Midway, complete with a large-screen television playing episodes of the prayer-themed talk show that has been broadcast five nights a week from the ministry’s Jacksonville headquarters since 2003.

“In addition to broadcasting specially selected ‘Live Prayer’ shows, we will have several Internet computers available for our guests to send in their prayer requests to our round-the-clock counselors,” said Keller. “We’ll also have volunteers visiting with fairgoers about the various ministries of Live Prayer and explaining the plan of salvation to those who are interested.”

Keller himself is set to appear at the “Live Prayer” tent two hours each day to meet guests and to pray with those who have special needs. “This is the perfect venue for ‘Live Prayer’ and we’re anticipating a phenomenal response,” said Keller. “In fact, we are already talking with fair officials about sponsoring a ‘Live Prayer Night’ at the 2008 Florida State Fair.

We’re more convinced every day of the need that this outreach is meeting throughout Florida, across America, and around the world.” Founded by Keller in 1999 as a unique online prayer resource, Live has responded individually to over 60,000,000 requests for personalized prayer. In 2003 Keller launched the hour-long television talk show “Live Prayer With Bill Keller” on select TV stations in Florida, and followed up with a national launch in 2006 on the I television network (formerly the PAX network). Keller also sends out a daily devotional to 2.1 million e-mail subscribers.

“From the moment he launched ‘Live Prayer,’ Bill Keller has been ahead of the media curve,” said faith-based media expert Susan Zahn, founder and president of WDC Media Public Relations. “From his innovative website, to his television show, to his daily e-mail devotionals, Bill is using every tool available to reach the millions of hurting people who would never darken the door of a church. That’s why you’ll see him and ‘Live Prayer’ every day at the Florida State Fair. Drop by and say hello!”
