Mother Angelica, founder of EWTN Global Catholic Network, was named the Alabama Broadcasters Association's Citizen of the Year.
At the annual convention, May 15, the organization’s director, Jerdan Bullard, said the award was “long overdue.”
The 81-year-old nun was unable to attend the event. EWTN news director Raymond Arroyo received the award on her behalf.
EWTN is in its 23rd year.
