Dec. 4, 2012 - PRLog -- Christendom College announces the launch of its new EWTN Catholic radio station WXDM 90.3 FM. The station officially started uninterrupted broadcasting on Friday, November 30.

WXDM is the first Catholic radio station to broadcast from Virginia. The radio station is broadcasting the EWTN Global Catholic Radio Network, which will provide an around-the-clock feed of authentic Catholic radio coverage. With a 190W-powered signal, the station covers the entire Front Royal area and is currently reaching as far north as Winchester, Va., and as far south as Bentonville, Va.

"We are very excited about this," College President Dr. O’Donnell says. “It couldn’t be more fitting to launch this station during what Pope Benedict XVI has declared as the ‘Year of Faith.’ Our hope and prayer is that the programming on this station will change hearts and lives in our local community. It certainly will be a great complement to the college’s mission, ‘to restore all things in Christ.’”

The College will celebrate the launch of the station with Arlington Bishop Paul S. Loverde on January 18. The bishop will celebrate Mass and bless the station’s tower, which is located behind Crusader Gymnasium.

Currently the station is broadcasting EWTN solely, but the College plans to incorporate some of it’s own programming over the coming years.
