Carmina Barnett

Dir of Operations & Programming
Mortenson Broadcasting

Carmina Barnett has always had a love for Gospel Music, so it seemed to be a natural progression for her to pursue a career where she could share the music she loves. She began her broadcasting career in 2000, and after a year of growing and perfecting her skill, the door opened for her to join Dallas and Fort Worth’s only 24-hour Gospel Music Station, Heaven 97 KHVN. Since then, she has become the host of the Praise Drive heard each weekday from 2 pm to 6 pm. She also hosts the Homegrown Gospel Show on Saturdays, 9:00 am to 10:00 am. Homegrown Gospel has been a tradition at KHVN for many years. Developed by the legendary Bro. Joe Bagby, the legacy continues with Carmina. This phenomenal show focuses on up-and-coming Gospel Artists from the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and surrounding areas by giving them a spotlight to share their music and their ministry. In addition to her on-air responsibilities, in September 2010 Carmina became the Program Director for KHVN. As of July 2016, she was appointed Director of Operations for the Mortenson Broadcasting Dallas Office. She also coordinates the station promotions, production and music programming.

Carmina is most fulfilled by being afforded the opportunity to serve in the community. She is dedicated to contributing and having a positive impact within our community and has developed partnerships and involvement with many local schools, educational organizations, ministries and non-profit organizations.
