The National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) has announced KGEB TV as the 2016 TV Station of the Year Full Power. KGEB TV is a station under the purview of Oral Roberts University's GEB America Network.

The award was given as part of the 2016 NRB Media Awards, which recognize this year's most outstanding ministries, facilities, and programs/producers in the world's preeminent association of Christian broadcasters and communicators.

NRB's Annual Media Awards program is designed to encourage excellence in production, service to the community, faithfulness to the mission, commitment to the gospel, and personal integrity. There are seven areas of focus for the 2016 awards: Church Media, Intercollegiate, International, Internet, Radio, Television, and Special Service.

KGEB programmers from around the globe shared their congratulations and appreciation for the station:

  • "We love being a part of the GEB Network! With an amazing drive for excellence, KGEB faithfully delivers 'The Jim Bakker Show' every day and continues to advance the words of Jesus to the world for the Glory of God," said Jim Bakker. "KGEB broadcasting is vital to our ministry and television program."
  • "We sincerely value our relationship with the GEB network! Many viewers have responded to our television program 'Jewish Voice with Jonathan Bernis' and have become partners with our ministry, enabling us to fulfill our mission to reach 'the Jew first and also the nations' with the good news," said Jonathan Bernis. "We consider KGEB an important strategic partner in expanding the kingdom of God by proclaiming Biblical truth to our nation at this critical moment in history."
  • "Our ministry has been greatly blessed by our partnership with KGEB!" said Gary and Drenda Keesee hosts of "Fixing the Money Thing and Drenda." "Everyday, we receive testimonies from viewers who have experienced real change in their lives as they implement the strategies for success in the areas of faith, family and finances we share on our programs. We're thankful for the opportunity to work with the outstanding staff at GEB America and for their strong commitment in building a top quality network focused on furthering His kingdom."
  • "We've aired 'Enjoying Everyday Life' on GEB America for many years and it has always proven to be a great match both in terms of reach and response," said host Joyce Meyer. "We absolutely love working with the great staff at KGEB. They always go the second mile to make sure we are taken good care of."
  • "It's such a joy to be able to present the gospel of Jesus Christ with KGEB viewers. Through KGEB, we are able to join with others who effectively share the love and grace of God," comments James Robison, co-host of "LIFE Today Television."
  • "I am delighted to be one of the GEB America programmers," said Perry Stone of "Manna-Fest." "The working relationship we have with the staff of KGEB is exceptional and we continually receive positive response from the KGEB viewers. I look forward to a great future as we continue working together."
