Sirius Satellite Radio to start Catholic-themed programming?
I'm sorry, but Sirius radio is still synonymous with Howard Stern in my mind...
NEW YORK - Sirius Satellite Radio Inc. said Wednesday it would create a new channel of Catholic-themed programming with the Archdiocese of New York.
The channel, which will launch in the fall, will carry live daily Mass from St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York as well as talk and music programming. Financial terms of the arrangement weren’t disclosed.
Sirius already carries other religious-themed programming, including Catholic-themed syndicated talk shows, news and teachings from the EWTN Global Catholic Radio Network as well as programs from FamilyNet, the broadcast arm of the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. Those shows are also available on terrestrial radio.
Programming on the new channel would be created especially for Sirius, company spokesman Patrick Reilly said. [source]
