EWTN Global Catholic Network continues to grow its programming and expand its reach on television, radio and through its digital and news platforms. The Network heads into 2021 with a renewed commitment to bringing the rich traditions of our Catholic faith to people all over the world.
Among the many television projects which the Network is excited to preview for 2021 is a new program: EWTN News In-Depth which will begin production in January. This new weekly, one-hour news discussion program offers the Catholic perspective and analysis on the top stories of the week. Hosted by Montse Alvarado, the program welcomes newsmakers, experts, and correspondents from EWTN’s global news bureaus in a discussion of current events in the Church, politics, and culture, all through the lens of the Catholic faith. The show’s host, Montse Alvarado, is already well-known to EWTN audiences as an inspiring and brilliant woman who also serves as Vice President and Executive Director of the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty.
Additionally, the Network’s 2021 plans include further strategic investment in its news gathering operations in the U.S., and around the globe, so that EWTN news outlets can cover even more topics of interest and concern to Catholics throughout the world. Developments include continued expansion of the ACI Africa news services launched in 2019 from Nairobi, Kenya as well as additional projects in the Middle East and Europe.
The new year will also see the continued expansion and development of EWTN España, a new television service customized for viewers in Spain which launched in mid-December.
EWTN Radio is also excited to announce the expansion to two hours of the daily broadcast of The Son Rise Morning Show beginning in January. Produced by Sacred Heart Catholic Radio Network, The Son Rise Morning Show is hosted by Anna Mitchell, a seasoned journalist and radio broadcaster well known to EWTN audiences. The program covers current affairs from a Catholic perspective and includes inspirational interviews and prayer. This expanded version of The Son Rise Morning Show replaces Morning Glory in the radio lineup.
EWTN Radio is also pleased to announce the addition of EWTN favorites, Father Brian Mullady, O.P. and Father John Trigilio as additional hosts of the popular daily program Open Line.
In addition, EWTN Radio also recently added a new weekly program Beloved and Blessed from Kimberly Hahn. The show speaks to the desires and strengths of women in all walks of life. Beloved and Blessed replaces Church Alive.
