Knight’s 125th Supreme Convention draws major Catholic media coverage

.- The head of the Knights of Columbus has announced that their upcoming 125th annual convention is garnering more attention as three major Catholic media groups have said they will provide coverage of the event.

The outlets that have committed to cover the event are Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN), Salt & Light Television, and Sirius Satellite Radio’s The Catholic Channel.

The most extensive live coverage will be provided by EWTN, which will broadcast uninterrupted coverage throughout the opening day of the convention. The network will also bring in its News Director Raymond Arroyo to anchor the telecast. EWTN will provide translation for its Spanish speaking audience and as usual make its live broadcast available on the internet.

The American television network’s coverage will include the Opening Mass, which will be celebrated by the Vatican’s Secretary of State, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Supreme Knight’s annual report, and the States Dinner program. EWTN will also include live interviews and pre-recorded segments about the K of C throughout the day.

Salt and Light, a Catholic television network from Canada, plans to broadcast live segments of Tuesday’s activities, including the Mass, the Supreme Knight’s report and
States Dinner program. It will also be present throughout the convention to conduct interviews with delegates and Church leaders for its nightly program ZOOM and its weekly current affairs magazine, FOCUS.  Salt & Light will also be preparing a documentary on the Knights of Columbus during the convention.

Sirius Satellite Radio’s The Catholic Channel (channel 159) will broadcast its Busted Halo Show, hosted by Paulist Father Dave Dwyer, from the convention Wednesday, Aug. 8 from 7-9 p.m. (EDT). The Catholic Channel will provide periodic updates and interviews throughout the convention and Cardinal Edward Egan, Archbishop of New York, will record his weekly program, A Conversation with the Cardinal, from the event in Nashville.
