Family Rosary Crusade Holds April 16 Fundraiser to bring Catholic Radio to Utica, NY

The Observer-Dispatch reports:

Members of the Family Rosary Crusade hope a semi-formal dinner dance fundraiser will help to raise the first dollars needed to support a radio station that will air the EWTN Global Catholic Radio Network.

The network offers the satellite service for free, and the local rosary crusade recently obtained an FCC license to air the feed, but now needs funds for leasing, licensing and engineering a tower, said Anna Marie Piacentino, founder of the crusade.

The organization isn’t sure exactly how much they need to raise, but are estimating about $75,000, Piacentino said.

They’ll receive some money from the Catholic Radio Association, but “we need the community’s help if we really want it,” she said.

Catholic Radio Hat-Trick in Pittsburgh!

Three new Catholic stations recently went on the air in the Pittsburgh area!  These stations cover the area on three signals… WPGR 1510am, WAOB 860AM and WAOB 106.7FM… The Diocese of Greensburg reports:

 A new Catholic radio network based in Westmoreland County, We Are One Body (WAOB), held its inaugural broadcast Feb. 14, airing a Mass celebrated by Bishop Lawrence E. Brandt at Blessed Sacrament Cathedral.We Are One Body — WAOB-FM 106.7, WAOB-AM 860 and WPGR-AM 1510 — will broadcast a Sunday Mass at 11:30 a.m. each week until March 19, when a partial programming schedule of teaching and prayer, providing listeners with spiritual enrichment and faith formation, will begin, according to an announcement We Are One Body delivered this week.

WAOB broadcast Mass Feb. 21 at 11:30 a.m. from St. Christopher of the Lake Parish, Prospect. Pittsburgh Bishop David A. Zubik will be the celebrant and homilist. On Feb. 28 at 11:30 a.m., WAOB will air Mass from St. Vincent Basilica, Latrobe, with Benedictine Archabbot Douglas R. Nowicki as celebrant and homilist.

We Are One Body purchased the three stations from Sheridan Broadcasting of Pittsburgh last year. The stations had operated as WAMO-FM, WAMO-AM and WPGR-AM.  WAOB is a private company, independent of the Diocese of Greensburg, but has the support of Bishop Brandt, who is a member of its board of directors.

Listen to Catholic Radio on Obama’s New Free Nationwide WIFI Network!

Reuters reports that a nationwide free WIFI network is in the works!

U.S. regulators may dedicate spectrum to free wireless Internet service for some Americans to increase affordable broadband service nationwide, the Federal Communications Commission said on Tuesday.The FCC provided few details about how it would carry out such a plan and who would qualify, but will make a recommendation under the National Broadband Plan set for release next week. The agency will determine details later.

One way of making broadband more affordable is to “consider use of spectrum for a free or a very low cost wireless broadband service,” the FCC said in a statement.

$9 Million Catholic Radio Explosion in Pittsburgh! – Three New Catholic Stations Go On-Air Sunday March 19!

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that three new Catholic stations will be going on the air in Pittsburgh on Sunday March 19!

A new Catholic radio network is about to launch on three local frequencies. WAOB (We Are One Body) will air on WAOB-FM (106.7), WAOB-AM (860) and WPGR-AM (1510). The frequencies formerly belonged to Sheridan Broadcasting’s WAMO-FM, WAMO-AM and WPGR-AM, which were sold last year.

The broadcast schedule begins this Sunday with a local Mass. A partial daily broadcast schedule, including a weekly Sunday Mass, will launch on March 19

Wikipedia reports:

On May 15, 2009, Sheridan announced that it has sold WAMO, WAMO-FM and WPGR to St. Joseph Ministries for 9 Million dollars. When the deal is approved by the FCC, the stations will all flip to a religious format. All 35 employees will be let go after the sale closes, leaving Pittsburgh without a Urban formatted outlet.[1][2] On September 1, 2009 WPGR signed off the air. It returned to the air February 15, 2010 with a live broadcast of a Catholic Mass, simulcast from the newly-renamed WAOB-FM. After its conclusion, the station announced that it will begin regular programming on March 19, with only Mass broadcasts being carried in the interim.[3]

Aggie Catholics get Second Catholic Radio Station serving Bryan Texas!

Bryan Texas is currently served by with 96.9 KACB. This is a low power station serving the student population – but a second station is in the works!

But, I am also guessing that very few know that Bryan/College Station is going to soon have a second Catholic radio station – KEDC 88.5 FM.  This radio station is being started by a group of local Catholics who have a passion for evangelization, of course most of them are Aggie Catholics.  They believe they will go live by March and they will carry a mix of shows from both EWTN Radio and Relevant Radio.  Later they will develop a few local shows, but remain mostly the mix from EWTN and Relevant.  The group that started the station is RED-C Apostolate (Religious Education for the Domestic Church).
