Finally a World Wide Pro-Life Evening News Program
By Ernest Ohlhoff
The Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) will begin broadcasting a nightly news program from Washington, DC on Tuesday September 3rd.
Colleen Carroll Campbell will be the news anchor for the new program. Colleen is a 38-year-old journalist and author who has written speeches for President George W. Bush and earlier this year anchored EWTN’s live television coverage of the papal conclave from Rome.
Now, in its 28th year, EWTN has become the largest religious media network in the world, airing programs to more than 225 million homes in four languages in over 144 countries and territories. EWTN transmits programming 24 hours a day on more than 4,800 cable systems, wireless cable, Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS), low power TV, individual satellite users, and short wave radio.
EWTN was one of the first institutions to file suit against the ObamaCare regulations, which attacked religious liberty.
Throughout their entire 28-year history, EWTN has made pro-life advocacy a cornerstone issue in its programming. Thousands of programming hours have been dedicated to focusing on the horrors of abortion, euthanasia, and embryonic stem cell research.
EWTN’s deep commitment to the pro-life cause was evidenced when EWTN’s Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Doug Keck and Director of Communications Michelle Johnson attended and spoke at National Right to Life’s 2013 annual convention in Dallas, Texas.
EWTN Nightly News will be broadcast each weekday at 6 p.m. Eastern Time beginning on Tuesday, September 3rd. The show will also re-air on TV each night at 9 p.m. Eastern Time and 2 a.m. Eastern Time and air on EWTN radio at 9 p.m. Eastern Time.
The Nightly News Program will be broadcast from a new studio located on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. EWTN will be a welcome alternative to the big three highly biased networks who for too long have had a monopoly on the content of news, which has all too often been spoon fed to the American public.
