Amarillo—The annual St. Valentine radiothon will take place Wednesday, Sept. 30 through Friday Oct. 2 from 8am-5pm all three days, according to St. Valentine Radio General Manager Sister Miriam Grady.
“Hosting our radiothon this year will be Jerry Usher, the longtime host of Catholic Answers,” said Sister Miriam.
“Jerry will be in the St. Valentine Radio studios in downtown Amarillo, where he’ll interview a number of local guests during the three-day radiothon.”
How does the money from the radiothon help St. Valentine Radio?
“The monies raised go toward the operational costs of St. Valentine Radio for one year,” said Sister Miriam.
“The money will also assist us in our upgrade project. At this time we are in the midst of a upgrade to our signal.
“The building to house the new equipment is finished and the construction for the five new radio towers that will handle our upgrade to 6,000 watts will begin in the next several weeks.”
Sister Miriam added that St. Valentine Radio is very appreciative of the support it has received in the past three years and prays that those who support Catholic Radio in the Texas Panhandle will help with this year’s radiothon.
“We realize these are tough times for many in our area,” she said, “We know that these are trying times. We appreciate all the generosity and faithfulness in supporting our ministry these past three years, despite the hardships. Thanks for your support. Please help us this year with a contribution. Every donation received will be gratefully welcomed.”
