Here's some great news from EWTN CEO and Register publisher Michael Warsaw:

I am pleased to announce that veteran Vatican reporter Edward Pentin will be joining EWTN as the full-time Rome correspondent for the National Catholic Register on September 1st. This allows the Register to dramatically expand our papal and Vatican news coverage. Previously, along with his part time work on articles and blogs for the Register, Edward has also reported for a number of other publications including Newsweek, Newsmax, Zenit, The Catholic Herald, and The Holy Land Review. Edward's 13 years of reporting from Rome, his extensive knowledge of the Vatican and Catholicism, and his faithfulness to the magisterium allow the Register to offer invaluable news to our readers. We are excited Edward is joining us on a full time basis and look forward to providing you with the best coverage of news from the heart of the Church. You can learn more about Edward Pentin at his blog and on Twitter @edwardpentin.
