Lee Witting serves as a chaplain at a major Maine hospital, pastors the Union Street Brick Church in Bangor, Maine, and is publications director for the International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS). His interest in NDEs began as a child, when he drowned in a lake and had his own near-death experience. Lee went through Presbyterian Sunday School before being raised Catholic, when his mother converted to that religion.
At Columbia University he minored in Eastern Studies, and developed a deep interest in Buddhism. Lee’s radio experience began at Columbia University’s WKCR-FM in New York, and was recently continued in a six-year run of "Earthtones," a WERU-FM community radio program he hosted, which was devoted to Native American and Eastern religious chant – along with weekly NDE stories from the files of IANDS. Lee Witting is the host of NDE RADIO on Talkzone.com.
