Relevant Radio® Comes To The East Coast
(GREEN BAY)-Rev. Francis J. Hoffman, Executive Director of Relevant Radio, was pleased to announce that Relevant Radio entered into an agreement with Salem Communications to purchase WBZS 550 AM located in Providence, Rhode Island, on January 6th, 2012. The official FCC Application was filed on January 17, 2012.
“Through the unbelievable generosity of a supporter, a gift was given with the hope of expanding the foot print of Relevant Radio,” said Fr. Hoffman. “After much discernment and prayer, plus consultation with His Excellency Thomas J. Tobin, Bishop of the Diocese of Providence, the Board of Directors selected WBZS based upon the signal coverage and strength, the size of the Catholic population and the affordable purchase price of $750,000.”
Fr. Hoffman stated, “For the New Evangelization we pray first; sacrifice second; and then get to work. We are thrilled that Relevant Radio can step out with faith into Providence in this upcoming Year of Faith. Our first station license was granted on December 12, 2000, the feast day of our Patroness, Our Lady of Guadalupe. It is fitting that both parties entered into the agreement on the feast of St. Andre Bessette, January 6, 2012. He had a great devotion to St. Joseph, and St. Joseph had a hand in this transaction.”
Since December of 2000, Relevant Radio has been helping people bridge the gap between faith and everyday life. Thought-provoking and engaging dialogue, commentary and listener call-in programs are the hallmarks of Relevant Radio twenty-four hours per day, seven days per week. The Relevant Radio network is currently serving the Church with 12 stations and 21 affiliates in 12 states with a potential listening audience of 28 million. The national headquarters of this listener-supported lay apostolate are located in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
