Catholic Radio Stations Report Record Growth, Number Set to Double to 220

Charleston, 09:03 am (CNA).- The number of Catholic radio stations is set to double, according to Catholic Radio Association president Stephen Gajdosik. The Catholic Radio Association has secured broadcasting licenses from the FCC for noncommercial educational FM radio stations across the country. The association has helped submit over 220 applications for new licenses in areas as far apart as Anchorage, Alaska and Key West, Florida.

“We pulled together dioceses, parishes, Knights of Columbus councils, lay apostolates, donors, lawyers, and engineers in the largest effort ever to acquire radio licenses for the sake of the Church’s work of evangelization,” said Gajdosik. “In our culture of 24/7 media consumption, the Church needs these tools to effectively proclaim the person of Jesus Christ. We exist to help her do that.”

The Catholic Radio Association offers start-up assistance services for new stations. There are currently 150 Catholic radio stations in the country.
