.- The Catholic media initiative Relevant Radio recently announced the expansion of its news commentary program, featuring Emmy Award-winning broadcast journalist Sheila Liaugminas.

The radio show “A Closer Look” will move from a short-form segment to a one hour interview program on weekdays from 5-6 p.m. CST and will premier April 4. Liaugminas is slated to discuss the Catholic perspective on current events with scholars, clergy, media specialists, elected officials and field experts.

“At the center of every story, about every topic and issue is the human person,” Liaugminas, said in a March 9 announcement. “I'm eager to engage the debate of the day with great guests from these fields of discipline in the news, and draw the focus back to the dignity of the human person at the center of it all.”

With experience in both secular and religious journalism, Liaugminas’ writing and broadcasting has touched on the spheres of faith, culture, politics and the media. She has reported for Time magazine and has written for the Chicago Tribune, Crain’s Chicago Business, the National Review Online, the National Catholic Register, Crisis Magazine, Adoremus Bulletin and Voices. Sheila also covers news and analysis on InForumBlog.

“More and more in my daily news gathering and media coverage, and through prayerful discernment, I've become more keenly aware of that moral and ethical dimension of the news and news media, and social communications in our time,” Liaguminas said.

“In a cultural climate of confusion and scorn, I'm eager to engage the issues of the day with clarity and charity.”

Relevant Radio is listener-supported lay apostolate headquartered in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The network, which provides 24-hour programming seven days a week, is recognized by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops as a national media outlet and has 12 stations and 21 affiliates in 12 states with a potential listening audience of 25 million.
