.- Catholic News Agency (CNA) and EWTN News have named veteran Catholic journalist and author David Scott as editor-in-chief of the two agencies.

The move is the latest in a growing collaboration between the two large news companies to expand their operations in the global Catholic digital and multimedia market.

With news bureaus in North and South America and Europe, CNA is one of the largest and fastest growing independent Catholic media outlets in the world. EWTN News is the news arm of EWTN Global Catholic Network, which provides multimedia services to more that 140 countries and territories and is the world’s largest religious media company.

In selecting Scott to serve as editor-in-chief, the companies have turned to a respected name in religious journalism who also has extensive experience working with top leaders in the Catholic Church in the United States.

“David brings a tremendous skill set to the post of editor-in-chief and is highly respected within Catholic journalistic circles,” said Michael Warsaw, president and chief executive officer of EWTN Global Catholic Network. “Having him on board will allow us to take our services to the next level.”

Alejandro Bermúdez, executive director of CNA and its Latin American-based sister news company ACI Prensa, said Scott has been a friend and colleague for nearly two decades. 

“His qualities as a writer and editor need no comment. He is simply one of the best,” Bermúdez said. “It is a true blessing to have him with CNA.”

During his 20-year career in religious journalism, Scott has held top editorial posts, in addition to publishing hundreds of articles in periodicals and journals in the U.S. and abroad, including in the Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano.

Scott said he is excited by the opportunity.

“I’m honored,” Scott said. “CNA and EWTN News have gathered some of the finest young talent in the Catholic press. They’re good writers, good editors, and they’re faithful Catholics. And they have a creative, energetic vision for Catholic journalism. We’re going to be able to do some great things for God and his Church.”

From 1993-2000, Scott served as the editor of Our Sunday Visitor, the largest-circulation independent Catholic newspaper in the U.S. In recent years, he has served as a consultant and close collaborator to top leaders in the U.S. Church. He has also served as editorial director of the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology, a research and educational institute.

Scott’s essays and reporting have appeared in such publications as: National Review, Commonweal, Crisis, Inside the Vatican, National Catholic Register, U.S. Catholic, Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, Godspy.com, Beliefnet.com, and Catholic News Service.

Among his books are “The Catholic Passion,” an introduction to Catholicism, and a spiritual biography, “A Revolution of Love: The Meaning of Mother Teresa.”
