The Register’s going to be on TV and radio. It was just a matter of time.

Now that the Register is owned by the world’s largest religious broadcasting network, it makes sense that EWTN and the Register find ways to leverage their collective strengths. Earlier this year, Register senior editor Joan Frawley-Desmond appeared on Raymond Arroyo’s “The World Over.” Tomorrow, I’ll be appearing on Doug Keck’s “Bookmark” program talking about the National Catholic Register, and our newest endeavor—“Register Radio.”

In case you’d like to watch “Bookmark,” it airs (tomorrow) Sunday, August 14, 9:30 AM & 11:30 PM; Monday, August 15, 5 AM; and Wednesday, August 17, 5:30 PM. You can watch it on EWTN or online.

As you may, or may not, have heard, the National Catholic Register is launching “Register Radio” on EWTN’s radio network beginning Friday, September 2nd. Think of it as everything you love about the Register in an audio format. The program will air every Friday at 1:00 p.m. ET, and re-air on both Saturday and Sunday, as well as be available online and as a podcast. EWTN’s Thom Price and I will be hosting the program.

“Register Radio” will dig deeper into the news stories and blog topics covered by the Register each week. We’ll be interviewing Register writers and newsmakers and covering the news about the Church and the world through the eyes of the magisterium.

And, while we’re at it, you might be interested to know that the National Catholic Register has been nominated for the “Best Group Blog” and the “Best Overall Catholic Website” categories in the Catholic New Media Awards.

If you’re a fan, visit the Catholic New Media Award website and vote for the Register. In addition, our very own bloggers Simcha Fisher, Jennifer Fulwiler, and Mark Shea have been nominated in their own right, so be sure to vote for Fisher’s “I Need to Sit Down” in the “Funniest Blog” category, Fulwiler’s “Conversion Diary” in the “Best Written Blog” category, and Shea’s “Catholic and Enjoying It” in the “Best Blog by a Man” category. They certainly deserve the kudos.

Finally, thanks to all of you for making what we do possible. Without your reading, commenting, advertising, subscribing, and financial support, we could not continue to do what we do each and every day.
