Denver Newsroom, Jun 11, 2021 / 13:00 pm (CNA).
Catholic News Agency’s award-winning flagship podcast CNA Newsroom is returning to weekly publication, in celebration of its 100th episode.
CNA Newsroom is a storytelling podcast, anchored by the latest Catholic news. Episodes have featured the voices of countless bishops, Catholic experts, and laity living out the Gospel in their everyday lives.
“I’m very proud of the stories we share on CNA Newsroom,” said Alejandro Bermudez, Catholic News Agency’s executive director.
“The podcast provides a crucial platform for CNA’s continued mission of evangelization, and will continue to do so for years to come.”
CNA Newsroom took home the prize for Best Podcast at the 2020 Catholic Press Association Awards. At the 2021 awards, the podcast won first place for Best Podcast — Expression of Faith.
“As far as I know, this is still the only podcast of its kind available,” said Jonah McKeown, co-producer and host of CNA Newsroom.
“We work hard every week to bring you thoroughly researched, highly-produced stories from a Catholic perspective that cover a wide range of topics, from theology to history, science, and of course current events.”
Drawing on the talents of CNA’s journalists both in the U.S. and abroad, episodes of CNA Newsroom often feature the voices of interesting people from around the world.
Rome correspondents Hannah Brockhaus and Courtney Mares have hosted several segments over the years, including a segment about Rome’s Purgatory Museum, and a story about the mysterious Holy House of Loreto in Italy.
“CNA Newsroom presents a great opportunity to get to know the voices of the CNA journalists you read every day,” said Producer Kate Olivera.
Occasionally, episodes are presented in innovative ways. A recent episode about the experience of deaf Catholics in the U.S. published alongside a video translating the episode into American Sign Language.
The podcast is available on every podcast platform, including Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Stitcher. It can also be heard on some terrestrial radio stations, including Redeemer Radio in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
