Pledge Drive Update

We are so grateful for all of our listeners who called in and pledged during our December Pledge Drive last week! We are very close to being fully funded for the next quarter, but we have had some listeners ask exactly how much their local station still needs to be fully funded. Below is a table that shows how much is still needed for some of our stations. If your station isn’t listed that means it has already met it’s financial goal!

You are always welcome to donate to a station that still has a financial shortfall. To do so, you can give us a call at 888-887-7120 or give safely and securely online.

Catholic Radio Returns to Los Angeles

cwrkhjCatholic World Report recently covered the launch of our new station in Los Angeles, KHJ 930 AM, and showed the support we have received from Catholics in Southern California:

“I was never a talk radio guy. Some friends suggested I tune in to IHR, however, and from day one I was hooked,” [former professional baseball player Mike] Sweeney said. “I love its Catholicity. It is 100 percent, unabashed Catholic.”

He added, “It’s given me a greater love and appreciation for my Catholic faith, and helped me answer our Protestant brothers and sisters when they ask me questions.”

He had never enjoyed California traffic, he said, but once AM 1000 began broadcasting, “I look forward to it. I can listen to so many outstanding Catholic shows. All my vehicles are set to AM 1000.”

Father Ed Benioff, the archdiocesan Director of New Evangelization, believes it is important to use Catholic radio and other forms of media to spread the Gospel. “One of my favorite saints, John Bosco, had an oratory game room so that his priests and brothers could play games with the kids they served,” Father Benioff said. “He reasoned, ‘If we enter their world, they’ll enter our world.’ We need to enter the wider culture so that we can present to them the gift of salvation.”

While secularism is prevalent everywhere, he said, it is particularly so in cities like Los Angeles. “People are tempted to pursue money, power, pleasure, and honor and to throw away spiritual values,” Father Benioff said. “It presents a greater challenge for us to evangelize, and the radio is an important tool to help us do so.”
