This morning, at 9 a.m. CST, marks the launch of a new radio program on Relevant Radio affiliate KYES - 1180 AM, featuring myself as host.

The inaugural show of “Voice from the Cloud” focuses on the topic of religious vocations and features guests Father Gregory Mastey, vocations director of the Diocese of St. Cloud, Minn., and Father Michael Najim, vocations director of the Diocese of Providence, R.I., and author of Radical Surrender: Letters to Seminarians and the blog Live Holiness. Program director David Rydberg chose the music and is operating the equipment. KYES hopes to air the program every Friday from 9-10 a.m. CST.

While I’ve been a frequent guest on radio programs such as Lino at Large, Vatican Radio, Al Kresta, Drew Mariani, Teresa Tomeo, and even guest-host with Greg and Jennifer Willits on “The Catholics Next Door,” this is my first time hosting a program. The focus of the program will be a look at Catholic news and topics both national and universal. It is my hope and prayer that the radio venue might augment my Catholic writing work and vice versa.

Listeners in central Minnesota will be able to hear the program on their radios at 1180 AM. Those elsewhere can listen to it online at KYES.
