Defying the odds against success, the world's largest producer of original English-language Catholic radio programming, Ave Maria Radio, is celebrating its 15th anniversary.
"Our Lady is surely pleased to lend her name to such a great mission!" EWTN Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Doug Keck said in light of the anniversary.
Keck said he and everyone at EWTN want to congratulate the "faith-filled professionals" of Ave Maria Radio for their "'Fiat' to the work of Catholic media evangelization.
In 1997, Tom Monaghan, founder of Domino's Pizza and former owner of the Detroit Tigers, took up an offer of free radio programming from EWTN founder Mother Angelica for any Catholic radio station.
