Rapture Predictor Camping's Radio Show Replaced

Thursday, 23 Jun 2011 02:23 PM

 

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The weekday Christian radio show hosted by failed apocalypse predictor Harold Camping, who suffered a stroke earlier this month, is being taken off the air.

The Oakland Tribune reported Thursday that Camping's Family Radio station would be replacing the 89-year-old's show, Open Forum, with new programming soon. The station has been playing repeats since his stroke.

Camping predicted Judgment Day would occur, first in 1994 and again last May 21.

Camping's media empire spent millions of dollars, some culled from his followers' donations, over seven years on billboards and other publicity for his 2011 predictions about the spiritual Rapture in May and the end of the world in October.

Judi Rathbone of Family Radio says Camping is still in the hospital continuing to recover from the effects of his stroke.
