Sports/Talk radio would probably be expensive, and the demographics probably wouldn't match. NPR doesn't run commercials (that's why they keep begging for money) and nobody listens to it anyway. Catholic radio would work best. The audience is already mostly Catholic, and advertising during the right programs would bring the highest yields. If you have to choose between the EWTN and the Catholic Channel, go with the Catholic Channel. Their programs are more entertaining. You would do well to advertise during The Catholic Guy show, even though Lino Rulli has one of your competitors (Anthony Buono) as a guest from time to time.

Though conservative or EWTN radios might target the already converted Catholics, we must try to reach beyond the "secure" ways. We should reach out to folks all of kind of beliefs in order to bring them in to join our Faith - the true Faith, and one way in doing this - using media that is very popular.

Catholics incompass the normal distribution curve (bell curve) of any large sample within a population in regard to religious, political, and personal moral behaviors. I think the best way to reach them is simply through each local parish's sunday paper. Mass is a one hour gathering of diversity each week.

Partial to EWTN, as they were pivital to my cnversion. I had know clue what Catholics believed. Searched for years and found it so hard to think no one else believed as i did after reading and studying the bible. I'm happy now. My first communion with my Catholic bretheren was just this year. Nearly six months and I still tear up and smile as I think.

EWTN would be good, but I voted for conservative talk radio. A Catholic advertisement on something like that, listened to by a lot of people who share basic conservative Catholic values but who are not Catholic, might be good for helping people to convert.

I would initially say..EWTN or Conservative talk radio. Those would be the logical choices..........but, I realize many more Catholics probably listen to Top 40 stations than EWTN....so, perhaps maintainstream stations...or, try a mix of different stations and see where the response comes from.

You can't choose one type of format, diversity is just too great....now if its cost the concern then would have to
consider seasonal contracts where audience is at its peak....you'll reach a variety of listeners. Sponsor concerts, and

NPR doesn't do advertising, only underwriting. That wouldn't be effective. Short ads on EWTN directing listeners to the Website would be good. And I reluctantly recommend conservative talk radio, too, simply because serious young Catholics tend to skew conservative. (Age and having children will make you more liberal. Trust me.)

I also am from the south, west Tennessee, Diocese of Memphis. We Catholics are called "fish eaters", at the best. Times are changing though. I think the best place to advertise would be where the greatest number of Catholics would be reached. I think that would be on either the Sirius or EWTN radio programming. NPR would be good if we were trying to reach outside our Faith, but that`s the whole point, to meet someone who we share a common belief and Faith in.

What better way to reach like minded Catholics then to advertise with A Catholic network like EWTN or the Catholic channel on Sirius. The reason I am on Catholic Match is to try to meet Catholics women who share the same faith values. The Top 40 up north would reach more Catholics the down south where I am from Catholics are growing in number down here but we are still looked at as non Christians in some locations.

I actually work for a great station in my area run by the Diocese of St. Petersburg, it's called Spirit FM 90.5! We play modern Christian music (alot like Air-1, K-Love etc..) plus Catholic programing. It is also accessable world-wide at spiritfm905.com. Ok that's enough with my station plug :) Send me a message if you're interested.

The way our culture is devolving into a hedonistic mess headed straight for hell, we should fill our hearts and minds w/ reverent, holy music like they play on EWTN.. This beautiful music helps guide our thoughts toward God and Heaven. We could all use a little help in that direction.

I consider myself the average "John Doe" or should I say "Kevin". Saying that most people believe in basic commonsense which falls these days mostly in the word Conserative. I guess I'm a proud Conserative. Those thinking that 1+1 is 3 is where Catholic radio should be targeting, Meaning those who believe otherwise such as it's ok for men to marry men and vise versa, throw blame at others, not taking responsbility for the own actions etc. We need to educate these misguided folks. Therefore why preach to the choir when others need help and clarification that 1+1 still = 2.

what you're voting for here are your future potential matches, and possibly your future spouse. it doesn't matter what YOU listen to... it matters what your future spouse might be listening to, so that the seed of joining this site is planted. That's the whole idea. At this point in my life I can't be on a mission to change someone, so I have to find someone who really seeks Truth, and just as important: knows where to seek it. She's not going to find it in top 40 radio, idealogical talk radio, or sports babble. So if you know someone who might vote for this but hasn't, please ask him/her to think about it a little more deeply. I don't think it's good for more 2/7, 3/7, 4/7, etc "Catholics" to be on here... there are plenty already. Let's get more members who actually get it, and are at least basically qualified for sacramental marriage = )
