The latest Catholic Radio Directory from the Catholic Radio Association lists over 300 Catholic stations in US alone. Of these – 88 are listed as new or soon to be on the air! That is a 28% increase! I can’t think of much else these days that is growing at that rate. Back in 1997 there were only about 7 Catholic stations in the US. The CRA was instrumental in helping numerous local organization file for FCC licenses during the recent open application period.
