Holy Family Radio, Inc. is a lay apostolate of Catholics in communion with the Holy Father and the Magisterium, placing ourselves in the hands of the Holy Family – Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. Through the inspiration of Saint Maximilian Kolbe and all the saints and martyrs, we will use our gifts and talents to actively work through these radio broadcasts to make known the Good News of Jesus Christ, for the honor and glory of God and the salvation of souls. Embracing the call of Vatican II for lay evangelization through the power of the media, we at Holy Family Radio, Inc., intend to utilize radio broadcasts to provide, through prayer and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the Truth of the Holy Catholic Church for the nourishment of our Catholic Family and to share our Faith with others.
WHYF am720 is owned by Holy Family Radio, Inc. (a non-profit 501 (c)3) and is a listener-supported, non-commercial radio station. The professional staff includes Joseph Nebistinsky, Station Manager and Russell Fry, Community Relations Coordinator. The rest of the staff is comprised of a group of dedicated volunteers. The station is an EWTN (Eternal Word Television Network) Global Radio Network affiliate. EWTN is the largest Catholic broadcast network in the world. WHYF is its only affiliate in Central Pennsylvania. In addition to the EWTN programming, we also produce our own local shows. Daily Mass is also an important component of the schedule. We broadcast Mass live every day at 8:00 am with an encore at 1:00 pm. Our listeners have expressed that is one of the most important programs that we provide. Our listeners tell us that we are a valuable teaching tool for Catholics and non-Catholics alike. Popular call-in shows allow listeners to engage the hosts to get answers to pressing questions and explore the depths of their Catholic beliefs. We believe that Catholic radio is a source of truth that allows Catholics to grow in their faith and recognize the true mission of the Catholic Church.
EWTN works in concert with the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. They deliver programs to over 500 domestic and international radio affiliates. EWTN is the largest religious media network in the world. They also have print news services including Catholic News Agency, The National Catholic Register newspaper, and several news-wire services, as well as EWTN Publishing, their book publishing division. We are proud to be a part of this important network.
