Now hear this: National Catholic Register to debut radio news show August 30, 2011

The newspaper’s media empire — growing in collaboration with its new owner EWTN — continues to expand:

The National Catholic Register, a long-standing national biweekly newspaper, announces the launch of its first-ever radio program, Register Radio.

“Register Radio will possess the same vibrancy and incisiveness to media coverage surrounding the Catholic faith that the Register brings to its print and electronic editions,” says managing editor Tom Wehner. “It’s a natural outgrowth of what we do already.”

Register Radio, which will air its first episode on September 2, is hosted by Thom Price, director of programming and production for EWTN Radio, and the Register’s senior writer Tim Drake.

Tim Drake is no stranger to this medium. He has appeared on Vatican Radio, EWTN, Fox News, Ave Maria Radio, and Relevant Radio.

Register Radio airs on Fridays at 2 p.m., with encores at 7 p.m. on Saturdays and 11 a.m. on Sundays (all times eastern). The show runs for 30 minutes and will include interviews with the writers, bloggers and newsmakers behind the prominent news stories featured in the Register and on

Register Radio will also cover the news stories affecting the Church and the world, entertainment reviews, interviews with the Register’s leading bloggers and listener feedback.

“Another feature we’re excited about is Media Watch, where we’ll shine the light of truth on how the media is reporting on events surrounding the Catholic Church. As the host, I’m excited about bringing the Register’s distinctive voice to new and different audiences,” says Drake.

  1. I am glad to read that a show covering the Church and the world is in the works. My favorite show on Sirius/XM’s The Catholic Channel was Across the Nation with Bob Dunning and evidently it has been discontinued. (Is it available elsewhere? Am I mistaken?)

  2. Love it that this is now under the EWTN banner. Now if they can take over a number of other Catholic media organizations, we might have solid Catholic teaching with some consistency.
