Immaculate Heart Radio AM 1010 is on the air

Catholic radio reached Utah for the first time in 2009!

The Most Rev. John C. Wester, Bishop of the Diocese of Salt Lake City, throws the switch to turn on 50,000 watts of Catholic radio, which flowed through the transmitter building into the towers past Ogden to Southern Idaho and south beyond Provo Aug. 22.The Catholic radio station is Immaculate Heart Radio AM 1010.

“This is a very historic moment for our diocese and also for Immaculate Heart Radio as we add this new station on to the network of 23,” said Bishop Wester. “I want to thank Doug and Janet Sherman for all you are doing for us and for your wonderful work here in this very important apostolate.” Doug Sherman is the founder and president of Immaculate Heart Radio.

New Catholic radio station launches ‘channel of evangelization’ in Phoenix

The Catholic News Agency reports:

A new Catholic radio station launched in Phoenix on Thursday, becoming the 24th station of the Immaculate Heart Radio network in the western United States. The local bishop says it will be a “channel of evangelization.”The new station, broadcast at KIHP 1310-AM, is the result of a five year effort to bring Catholic radio to the Phoenix market, the Phoenix Business Journal reports. The last three letters of its call sign stand for Immaculate Heart Phoenix.

Though the radio station used by KIHP was priced at four or five million dollars five years ago, it was purchased for only one million because the recession caused a lower asking price.

Doug Sherman, president and founder of the Sacramento-based Immaculate Heart Radio, said the purchase was funded by donors, the majority of whom were local.
