How do you take what the Lord is doing and how He's speaking and condense it into an hourlong program?

That's the challenge John Matarazzo of Cornerstone Television faces every day.

"As a producer of the Real Life program, our daily program, we have guests every day. So that really kind of changes the focus of each show. And, we always try to see where God is wanting to speak in this program. So, we've got regular segments.

"It's my job to organize the show in a way that has a good flow and then communicate with our hosts and talent and the guests about the direction of the show and how we're going to get to a goal where we have an opportunity to share about Jesus, we have an opportunity to minister to our viewers," Matarazzo says.

More than 6 million people in 167 countries tune in.

But Matarazzo wasn't always working behind the scenes at the Pittsburgh-based station. Listen to the podcast to see who he is, where he came from and what God is doing in his life.
