Hello Carolina Catholic Family. This is David Papandrea, Founder and Chairman of Carolina Catholic Radio. The New Church year has begun. Happy New Year! As we journey through Advent in preparation for the birth of our LORD, SAVIOR and KING… JESUS CHRIST… I want to
take a moment to extend my sincere thanks and gratitude to all who have helped grow ou
Carolina Catholic apostolate over the past five years… from inception in 2015 to incorporation
in 2017 to our first broadcast in January 2019.
I have truly been blessed with amazing volunteers, a passionate advisory board and supportive board of directors who share their time, talent and treasure as we build Carolina Catholic’s foundation for the future. I would also like to thank our dozens of donors, sponsors and advertisers for your financial support. We look forward to sharing all the ways you can get involved with us to grow Carolina Catholic in these extraordinary times when our world turned upside down.
Since Carolina Catholic signed on the air nearly 2 years ago we have purchased AM1270 Radio in Belmont, we are increasing our power from 2500 to 10,000 watts across Charlotte, and we are now operating on multiple platforms that include Broadcast Radio, Alexa and Tune-In… Audio Streaming on Internet and our Mobile App… Social media posting on Facebook… a YouTube channel… an Audio/Video On Demand section on our website and mobile app … and Direct Marketing through our weekly Eblasts.
In conjunction with EWTN’s outstanding Catholic network programs … Carolina Catholic has made a major commitment to Local Programming. We are now adding new local programs weekly based on the input we receive from you our Carolina Catholics. Every day I hear from someone who wants to do a program about something they’re passionate about!
Carolina Catholic was created for you… by you. It is a reflection of You! I look forward totalking with you about the goals of your parish, ministry or business and how to best promote it to the Carolina Catholic audience now numbering in the thousands. Let’s make 2021 a year to reignite our spirit and renew our commitment to learn, love and live our Catholic Faith across the Carolinas. Thank you for your prayers, your volunteering and your financial support. May God Bless You and Your family abundantly this Advent and Christmas season!
