National Catholic Register is first member in editors' service

.- Catholic News Agency and EWTN News have announced that the National Catholic Register is the first official member of their new service for Catholic editors.

The Register, an independent Catholic bi-weekly owned by EWTN, will use the CNA Editors Service as its primary source for news wire copy both in the print edition and on its website, NCRegister.com.

“CNA and the Register are a sensible fit,” said David Scott, editor-in-chief of Catholic News Agency/EWTN News. “We share a similar vision. We both believe that Catholic journalism today should reflect the highest professional values. We also believe that it must truly be ‘Catholic.’”

Launched May 31, the CNA Editors Service will supply a full range of news, features, commentary and photojournalism.

All content will be provided free-of-charge for publication in print or on the web. Editors will be required to pay small fees for the use of photos provided by Getty Images, one of the world’s top names in news photography.
In addition to news, editors will have free access to CNA’s wide range of columns. These include its “Catholic Womanhood” columns and “Bishop’s Corner,” which features opinion writing by leading U.S. bishops.

CNA is also offering a new weekly column, “Answering the Tough Questions,” by Father Rocky Hoffman, a canon lawyer.

The new service includes feature packages on special themes, such as health care and senior citizens. Editors will also have access free-of-charge to CNA’s video offerings, as well as to news and analysis in Spanish, through CNA’s sister agency, ACI Prensa.

The first partner in the new service, the National Catholic Register, is one of America’s oldest independent Catholic newspapers, founded in 1927.

Tom Wehner, the paper’s managing editor, said, “CNA’s reputation for comprehensive, solidly Catholic journalism, combined with its loyalty to the Pope and the magisterium, fits perfectly with the mission of the Register.”

EWTN News, Inc. was launched as a subsidiary of EWTN Global Catholic Network to expand their operation in the global Catholic digital and multimedia market. In 2010 it started a partnership with Catholic News Agency and in February of this year, EWTN acquired the National Catholic Register.

“I am pleased to see this partnership come to fruition,” said Michael Warsaw, EWTN’s president and chief executive officer, and publisher of the Register. “We live in an age where there is so much distortion and misrepresentation of the Church’s teaching by forces who oppose her message, particularly in the secular news media. It is encouraging to see two faithful Catholic news sources joining forces to serve the Church, and EWTN is proud to have the Register and CNA as part of our family.”
