Dr. Frank Wright, a vocal leader in Christian broadcasting, is stepping down as president of the National Religious Broadcasters.
Wright has led the NRB for the last decade. He announced Thursday that he'll leave the post in October this year.
"Ruth and I have counted this as a special season of blessing in our lives," Wright said in a letter to NRB chairman Richard Bott. "We have felt our time in your service to be fruitful and fulfilling, yet we now have a clear sense that the Lord is leading us to another area of service."
Bott will appoint a committee made up of members of the NRB Board of Directors and Executive Committee to began searching for his replacement.
The NRB chairman thanked Wright, who will remain in his position until October 4, for his "dedicated service and stellar performance."
