Chris Stevenson has never been one to do things traditionally. At 19, with very little experience and no formal schooling in broadcasting, Chris walked into a Detroit radio studio unannounced and told the general manager he wanted to be on the radio. “The manager liked that I had some chutzpah and asked me to come back the next day to make a tape,” he recalls. “It was horrible! But he gave me some pointers and then he gave me a chance.”
During his four hours on the air, Chris strives to use the power of the station’s 50,000 watts to reach others for Christ. “We say our show is about ‘Real People, Real Ministry,’ ” he says. “One of the things we do regularly we call ‘Pay It Forward Detroit.’ ”Pay It Forward Detroit got its start in 2012 when Chris received a BP cash card in the mail along with a handwritten note saying to give it to caller 76 because someone needed it. Chris did just that and the caller’s story was very similar to the handwritten note he had received. “People got inspired and started sending me things to give away,” Chris says. “We bless people in the name of Jesus just because we can.”
When he’s not on air, you can find Chris spending time at one of his daughter Annalise’s chess tournaments, basketball or volleyball games, watching movies with his family or entertaining with wife Silvia at home. “I want to have a strong presence in Annalise’s life and empower her to become the best version of herself,” he says of his daughter. “I hear all these stories about people who say their father never told them they were loved. I don’t want any part of that.”
Bob is passionate about Christian apologetics. “I take complicated issues and translate them into everyday language,” he says. “I use science to logically prove what we as Christians believe, archaeology to prove the Bible is true and physics and science to prove Biblical Creation.”
After growing up in what today would be described as a religious cult in Columbus, Ohio, Bob turned to a life of sex, drugs, alcohol and demonic activities. It was while working at a restaurant when he was 19 that the manager invited Bob and his girlfriend, Jeannine, to a church service where they both responded to an altar call. “My mother was part of this cult and my father was a hardcore agnostic, so I didn’t know any Christians and had no clue what to do next,” Bob recalls. “I only knew I didn’t want to spend eternity in hell, so I cut my hair, bought a Bible, started going to church, and began the process of my Christian journey.”
Bob and Jeannine were baptized together and have been married since 1984. They have had one daughter and have six sons. Their daughter, Colleen, passed away in 2002 after collapsing inexplicably into Bob’s arms. Naturally, Colleen remain an inextricable part of Bob’s story. “It gets a little easier over time, but I never stop missing her,” he says.
In his spare time, Bob enjoys public speaking engagements and devotes the rest of his time to his family. “I believe I am right where God would have me right now,” he says. “I care about politics and about strengthening people’s faith in Jesus Christ. I wouldn’t feel fulfilled if I wasn’t doing this part of my job.”
Chris Ayotte is a native metro-Detroiter from the northern suburbs. Growing up he was active in theater, choir and sports. Prior to joining WMUZ, he spent over 20 years in the corporate world in automotive sales and marketing. He held positions out West before coming back to the Motor City to launch new products. Chris and his wife share a blended family and are enjoying a whole new journey in life.
For his show, Chris is celebrating faith with an exclamation point (!), covering our modern lives through a Christian lens – news, lifestyle, and trailblazing personal stories with an upbeat take. With fresh enthusiasm, he shines a light on those making a difference for Christ nationally and locally, having fun along the way.
Chris is also known as a “Man of Many Voices,” performing shows with spot-on impressions of legendary celebrities and
singers. He occasionally pays tribute to legendary stars like Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and more. Chris is a regular at the annual Michigan Elvisfest where he hosts the Saturday Gospel Hour. He believes you can be a Christian AND an entertainer, bringing a refreshing alternative to those looking for wholesome entertainment.
