Beginning January 1st, Redeemer Radio is now on the air with its line-up of full-time Catholic Radio programming on 1450 AM WLYV in Fort Wayne. WLYV is the first Catholic radio station in Fort Wayne and the first Catholic station in the Diocese of Fort Wayne – South Bend. Members of the public joined in the inauguration by touring the studio during an Open House held on Tuesday, January 3rd. As part of the Open House, Bishop John M. D’Arcy blessed the studio and staff.

Redeemer Radio is a 501c3 non-profit group of lay Catholics, separate from the diocese of Fort Wayne – South Bend. The mission of Redeemer Radio is to evangelize the Catholic faith through radio in the diocese, under obedience to Bishop John M. D’Arcy.

According Redeemer Radio president Chris Langford, “Catholic radio is very effective because it is available anytime and everywhere: at home, in the car, in the office. It also reaches everyone: rich and poor, young and old, and those who may not be active in any faith.”

Redeemer radio can be reached via email at info@redeemerradio.com, by phone at (260) 436-9598, or by visiting the website at www.redeemerradio.com. The street address is 4705 Illinois Road, Suite 104, Fort Wayne, IN 46804.

Mr. Langford also says, “Our lives have changed more in the last 50 years than in the 500 years prior to that. We’ve been inundated with more information than we can process, but the need for meaning, perspective and truth persists. It’s about time Catholic Radio “stepped up to the mike” to share catholic teaching on today’s critical issues.”

WLYV transmits at 1000 watts day and night. The signal can be heard throughout Allen County and across most of the surrounding counties, including those in Ohio.
