     Our President, Don Stone, has 37 years experience in working in the Atlanta Christian marketplace. 
     He was General Manager of a local Christian radio station for 15 years.        
     Don created Atlanta Christian Magazine, which is now in it's 30th year of publication and comes out every two weeks.
     He formed the Atlanta Christian Media Group in 1994, which helps businesses, churches and Christian schools to be more effective in using their advertising dollars on local media. 
     Don created the first Christian business guide ever published in Atlanta. Now, The Atlanta Christian Business Directory is in it's third decade of existence with the 43rd edition due out this Summer. It now comes out twice each year.
   He also created the AtlantaChristianWeb.com community, which includes this web site and
www.atlantachristian.com.
    In 2010, Don built an E-Blast newsletter program that now goes out twice a month to thousands of Christians in the metro Atlanta area. Details here..http://www.atlantachristianweb.com/E-Blast%20newsletters.asp

    A passion for sports led to numerous projects focusing on area teams. His company, Express Publications, created the Braves Express magazine, now in its 27th year of publication with a version covering the Gwinnett Braves, the Gwinnett Braves Express since 2009. The website for that is www.braves-express.com. A similar E-Blast newsletter program on the Atlanta Braves goes out twelve times during baseball season.
   Another sports magazine, The Georgia Tech Express, covering Yellow Jackets football, is in its 28th year of publication. A similar E-Blast newsletter program on the Yellow Jackets goes out weekly during football season and has recently expanded to cover all campus sports running throughout the school year.
    The website for that is www.georgiatechexpress.com.
    A publication called Georgia Football Magazine covering the Georgia Bulldogs comes out each fall. Football Atlanta covering the Bulldogs, Yellow Jackets and Atlanta Falcons has been in publication since 1996. The website for that is www.footballatlanta.com.
    Above he is pictured in the Georgia Dome press box for its final game in 2016, the NFC Championship Game. He covered nearly 900 events going back to 1996 at the Georgia Dome.
  
A similar E-Blast Newsletter program on the Bulldogs and Falcons goes out weekly during football season. Similar newsletters covering the Clemson Tigers, Florida Gators, Auburn Tigers and Virginia Tech Hokies go out to those fan bases as well.
    Another project is Healthy Living Atlanta Magazine, which provides helpful easy to use information on health, nutrition and fitness with columns by national and local experts. The website is
www.healthylivingatlanta.com.
A similar E-Blast newsletter program for Healthy Living Atlanta goes out twice a month.
  His latest endeavor is a website covering the growing athletic program at Kennesaw State University, www.KennesawStateSports.com. An E-Blast Newsletter is now in it's third year covering the new football team along with all other campus sports goes out to students over 25 times a year.

     Don graduated from Southern Illinois University in 1974 with a BS in Radio & Television Production, with a Special Major in Telecommunications and minors in Theatre and Spanish. 
     He worked his way through college as a disc jockey at WRAJ AM/FM, WSIU-FM, and at WJPF-AM Radio, all southern Illinois stations near the university. While there, he was elected president of TelPro, a student production company where he played a Dick Clark character in "SIU Bandstand." He also wrote the play, "Leave It To Gopher," as a satire on TV situation comedy of the 50s and 60s with future New York composer Barry Kleinbort playing the dad, Wart, and now well known west coast photographer, writer and NPR correspondent, C. Steven Short playing Willy. It was later produced by the Savannah Little Theatre with Don reprising his role of the wise cracking Eddie Hassle. In Atlanta, the Dunwoody Stage Door Players presented it in a series of one act plays with Don directing, and a bit too old for Eddie, switched to the dad part.
   Before moving to Atlanta in 1978, Don was a television weatherman on WSAV-TV in Savannah, GA. His anchor was an old high school and college friend, Eric Paulsen, who has been a staple on WWL-TV in New Orleans since 1977.
   Don has been married to Valerie since 1982. His daughter, Shannon (in the above photos at left, center and right) lives in Ogden, Utah with husband Shawn Capati and son, Desmond. Don's son, Shane (in the above photo at right), just graduated with a degree in Communications from Kennesaw State University.
