When Pope Francis Arrives in North America, There is Only One Network to Watch: EWTN Global Catholic Network
Media: Experts Are Available for Commentary
Irondale, AL (EWTN) – If you really want to know what Pope Francis says and does during his visit to the United State and Cuba, there is only one network to watch: EWTN. From the Pope’s arrival in Havana on Sept. 19 through his departure from Philadelphia Sept. 27, the Network will be live on-the-ground with the most experienced news teams and the top experts in Catholicism. EWTN will not only cover, but explain – in English, Spanish, German, Portuguese, and Italian -- everything the Pope says on his journey across North America.
Media: Please contact EWTN for expert commentary.
“Covering the Pope is what we do year round on a daily basis,” said EWTN President & COO Doug Keck. “No one else possesses the depth of understanding and the expert commentators like EWTN.”
EWTN will not only cover the Pope’s trip on EWTN television, but on EWTN radio, via its multiple news services and social media sites, and in multiple languages. Viewers can also see it live streamed and get details of EWTN’s coverage at www.ewtn.com/america or on their mobile phone with the EWTN app (www.ewtnapps.com).

On the English side, EWTN News Director Raymond Arroyo, who has anchored more papal events than anyone in the industry, will host our live coverage from New York, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia. The “EWTN News Nightly” (ENN) team, led by ENN Anchor Brian Patrick, will also be on-the-ground providing news and reports during the Pope’s visit to all three U.S. cities, while ENN Producer Susanna Pinto will offer English-language reports from Cuba. In addition, Spanish-language coverage in Cuba will be anchored by EWTN’s Alejandro Bermudez, executive director of the ACI Group, and host of several Spanish-language programs on EWTN Spanish-language television and radio networks.
EWTN President & COO Doug Keck and “Women of Grace” Host Johnnette Benkovic will host coverage of the “World Meeting of Families” (WMOF) in Philadelphia, which airs Sept. 22-25, just prior to the Pope’s arrival in Philadelphia. Keck will also provide regular updates on the Pope’s travels around the U.S. In cases where EWTN’s papal coverage coincides with keynote speeches and Masses at the WMOF, EWTN will live stream the events at www.ewtn.com/wmof2015.
