Immaculate Heart Radio now reaches another 6.8 million people, as today we increase the power of our San Diego station, KCEO 1000 AM. This signal expansion allows KCEO to stretch from southern Los Angeles county all the way to the Mexican border – covering nearly all of the Diocese of Orange. With 1.3 million Catholics in the Diocese of Orange, we are excited to share the best Catholic programming with Catholic and non-Catholic alike.
“Radio is so accessible,” said Doug Sherman, president of Immaculate Heart Radio. “Just look at the freeways – so many people are tuned into the radio. So we try to give encouragement and solutions to everyday problems from a Catholic perspective.”
The Diocese of Orange will produce one hour of original programming each week, Orange County Catholic Radio, which will air Thursdays at 11 a.m. The program will be produced from the Christ Cathedral Campus in Garden Grove, CA. Most Rev. Kevin Vann, bishop of the Diocese of Orange recently said:
“In a lot of ways, Catholic radio has a long history of evangelizing. I used to listen to Catholic radio in Rome. Now to bring it to Orange County is a chance to pray and listen and inform people while they are in their cars. It is an opportunity to communicate with all types of people.”
