Satellite Radio Inc. announced Wednesday that it plans to create a new
channel of exclusively Catholic programming in cooperation with the
Archdiocese of New York, reports the Associated Press.
The channel, which will launch in the fall, will carry live daily Mass from St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York as well as talk and music programming. Programming on the new channel would be created especially for Sirius.
Sirius already carries religious programming, including Catholic-themed syndicated talk shows, the EWTN Global Catholic Radio Network, and FamilyNet, the broadcast arm of the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention.
