Catholic News Radio Is a Tool in Times of Trial

One does not need to look far before finding horrible events that can shake our faith. The world can be a difficult place, and so often we hear about or experience events that are challenging to even fathom. Every day, new stories can be found that demonstrate the depravity existing around us. Often, we are either immune or numb to these events around the globe, but even when terrible things are happening outside our own backyards, it can make us question why they are even allowed to happen. Some media outlets can spin stories to accomplish an agenda. Alternatively, they can focus on the gory details to entice us to stroke the sin within us and gain viewers or listeners. So quickly can we be taken in by these tactics that we can lose sight of what is truly important, how we are to live, or even to pray.

Suffering Surrounds Us

The recent events in Paris are simply beyond understanding. So casually taking so many innocent lives for the purpose of pushing the evil hatred that is a particular group’s message seems otherworldly. However, as we also know, these major terroristic events are not something a world away. The September 11 attacks and so many other events make it painfully clear that no matter where we live in the world, evil happens. We are continually bombarded with the stories of these major tragedies, as well as seemingly minor occurrences that turn the world our friends and family upside-down as well. The loss of a child in an accident, the burning down of a home, or the diagnosis of cancer in our own bodies seem so contrary to what our minds tell us we should believe and feel. As Catholics, we have the advantage of understanding that God is in control in all things. Even though we may not understand them now, we can rest in the knowledge that anything that happens is for his purposes, and his intentions are always good.

Fighting a Battle Within and Outside Ourselves

Knowing that, however, does not free us from the temptation to question God in these sufferings. It does not exempt us from questioning our faith, our beliefs, and our hope. Whether we are facing an incomprehensible reality in our own lives or hearing about them in someone else’s, we can be apt to throw our hands up in disgust, instead of throwing them around the comfort of the Lord. Catholic news radio cannot answer all these impossible questions. However, it can be a tool we use to stand firm when we are shaken, and look to the source of truth, not the father of lies.

Catholic News Radio is a Tool

As stated early, regardless of where you get your news, it can be challenging to find it from a source that aligns with our struggles and beliefs as Catholics. Politics, greed, agendas, and many other factors can color our news in ways we may not even realize. While we are not targeting any media sources specifically, we know firsthand that it can be challenging to present the news in a manner entirely objective. So, instead of claiming that Catholic news radio has no agenda, we unapologetically state the opposite. Getting your news from Catholic talk radio, is getting it from a source whose agenda is to love people as Christ loves us, to spread the message of his strength and power and to rest in his promises of hope and justice. Catholic news radio is a tool that we can use to help us understand the world around us, but also to do so with an attitude and practical application of a Catholic perspective. Catholic talk radio is not perfect. However, it can be trusted as a news source that certainly puts God in the center, and works hard to remain steadfast no matter how painful the story can be to hear.

Experience the Programming of KYES Wherever You Are

We often speak about how the technology to listen to the programming of KYES anywhere you are provides an exceptional opportunity for our listeners. Now, you can keep up on the latest Catholic news, your favorite KYES programs, and powerful messages to help in your daily life from anywhere. On the radio, your computer, or even a mobile device, KYES programming can stay with you whether you are here in Central Minnesota, or across the globe. Below you will find just a few ways that having this constant access to KYES can be a blessing to you and your family.

Across the Country

It may be a family road trip, a holiday visit, or a business conference that forces you to leave the comforts of Central Minnesota. While Catholic stations are popping up more and more, they can be difficult to find. Also, many of them have very limited broadcast ranges. Finally, none will be dedicated to the place you live, work, and raise your family. Thanks to technology, you can take KYES with you wherever you roam throughout this great nation. You will never have to miss your favorite shows, and you can always tune in for daily mass at St. Mary’s Cathedral back home. The wisdom, encouragement, news and information from a Catholic perspective you need is always at your side.

Across the World

On occasion, you may find that your travel takes you beyond our borders, and you need to spend time in another country. Finding another local Catholic station to listen to in another country can be extremely challenging. There are far fewer Catholic based stations outside of the United States. Also, depending on the country, even if you do find a Catholic talk station, you may not know the language to understand it. Again, technology steps in and despite the distance allow you to listen to KYES in any country where internet access is available. From your laptop or mobile device, your station will be available as if you’d never left. Just remember to keep in mind the time change!

Across Town

In life, we do a great deal of waiting. From the doctor’s waiting room to your oil change at the shop, sometimes we have a lot of time to fill. Everyone is busy, and these delays can cause frustration and stress. Some will spend the time playing a game on their phone, or scrolling through their Facebook feed. However, when we have no choice but to wait, we suggest grabbing a set of headphones and plugging into the programming of KYES. Not only will this help alleviate the frustration, but it is also a wise use of our time to receive the wisdom and Catholic-focused information to help us walk as God commands. Wherever life may take you, here in Central Minnesota or to far off nations, KYES will be there!

Catholic Talk Radio: Heard Loud and Proud Across the State

Catholic talk radio stations are experiencing exceptional growth across the nation. What used to be difficult to find, is not available anywhere thanks to online radio programming and more powerful Catholic broadcasts. Even with this growth and technology, there are still many places that Catholic talk radio can be hard to find. Here in Central Minnesota, we have the unique distinction of having a vast broadcast area thanks to our powerful equipment and signal strength. Instead of reaching only one town or area, as many small Catholic stations offer, Catholic Talk AM 1180 KYES can be heard loud and proud all across this great state.

Higher Watts Equals Wider Range

The ability to listen to radio waves on your car radio or home stereo is made possible through the use of wattage. The more powerful a transmitter, and the more watts that push the signal out, the farther people can pick it up. KYES is blessed to have a radio tower and transmitter that is powered by 50,000 watts. This is almost unheard of for a Catholic talk station and is even equal to that of Twin Cities powerhouse WCCO. Because of this, our signal reaches a broadcast area that spans the state and provides listeners with the exceptional programming, encouragement, and information that will help them in their Catholic faith and walk.

Across the State, Or Across the Country

Along with our massive power to broadcast traditionally, KYES is proud to provide the option to listen online, through your phone, laptop, or other mobile device. That means that whether you live outside our listening area, or are travelling and want to continue listening to our shows, you have 24/7 access easily. You can listen through our website, or our excellent mobile app anywhere in the world, and hear crystal clear Catholic programming wherever you can access the internet.

Why Is This Important?

There is a lot that Catholics and anyone must face in our busy modern world. It can be so easy, and so devastating when we have nowhere to turn for help. Living the Catholic life is complicated; being bombarded daily with temptations and messages contrary to the faith. It is so easy to lose sight of what it important, make poor decisions, and give in to the temptations so prevalent within society. Whether it is an ethical decision you are struggling with, a kernel of doubt, or a question about being Catholic, the programming on AM 1180 KYES is designed and carefully implemented to help. We believe our message is vital, and we think we have a responsibility to fill these needs for as many people as possible. You can count on us to continue delivering Catholic talk radio, heard loud and proud and proud across the state, and across the world.

Why Catholic Talk Radio Inspires, Supports, and Celebrates Christian Values

It does not take long to see that we live in challenging times. With technology, rapid access to information, and a surge in anti-Christian sentiment, it can be difficult to hold fast to our Christian values, and live our lives in accordance with Christ. In our modern environment, we as Christians must seek out, support, and work to enlarge any outlet that provides us with the help we need to stay the course. One such outlet is Catholic talk radio. The programming provided by Catholic talk stations throughout the world is crucial. Catholic talk radio inspires, supports, and celebrates Christian Values by design. At Catholic Talk AM 1180 KYES, our mission is to be an outlet that does all that and more. We honestly believe that with the help of our listeners, we can face the world’s challenges, and help all Christians to remain strong with the assistance of our work.

Catholic Talk Radio Inspires

Thanks to talented and faithful radio personalities, listening to Catholic talk radio can be an excellent source of inspiration. Our programs are known for awakening Catholics to things in their lives that need to change. Whether it is a caller sharing struggles similar to your own, or wisdom from clergy, people become inspired to make those changes. Perhaps even more powerful, hearing the positive messages of hope and healing often drives everyday people to do amazing things in the name of our Lord. It may be a surge of energy for seeking out the lost, or a sudden passion for counseling others in need. While the results of the inspiration Catholic talk radio provides may differ, there can be no doubt that inspiration may be found through it.

Catholic Talk Radio Supports

We believe that our responsibility to our listeners is to provide ample support to navigate life’s journey. One of our primary goals is to be there for people, to offer them a source of comfort in times of trial, to deliver sound Christian advice in the midst of confusion, and give hope when all seems lost. In fact, we so strongly believe that we hold this responsibility that failing to provide this support would undermine all we work to do. Because of the troubling world we face, support is perhaps the most important and valuable thing we can provide. Simply sharing with people the knowledge that they are not alone, that God is with them, that others face the same struggles, and that there is a purpose in it is worth more than gold.

Catholic Talk Radio Celebrates

Again, the world can be troubling, yet there is still much to celebrate. We are all called to be joyful in all circumstances, and Catholic talk radio shares this joy with anyone in range of our signal. As Catholics, we have the privilege of knowing God personally, of communicating with him, and submitting to him in order to become like Christ himself. The good news of the gospel is always a reason to celebrate, and we not only do not shy away from sharing our joy, but we proclaim it loudly and proudly. It is always a good time to be a Christian, for we are his children and the heirs of unimaginable joy.

There is great importance in Catholic talk radio. Its growth has been strong, and its number of listeners has been steadily increasing. This tells us that if we continue to provide inspiration, support, and joyous celebration, our work is blessed. We also understand that we are held to lofty expectations and believe that our responsibility to our listeners is great. We do, and will continue to do everything in our power to meet those responsibilities, and offer great value to all who hear us.

Stimulating Catholic Talk Radio at Your Fingertips

There countless stimuli that are competing for your attention on a daily basis. Some are helpful and necessary things, and others are merely a way to zone out and waste time. One of the more popular forms of stimulus is radio. Whether you listen through a stereo or over the web, most Americans spend at least some time interacting with radio programming. For Catholics, as it is with many things, the radio can have an adverse effect on our faith. What we listen to has a powerful effect on our minds. Even as we habitually listen in our car or as we do are work, it may seem like you were not paying attention and wouldn’t be able to repeat what was heard. However, our subconscious mind heard every word, every lyric, and will affect us whether we realize it or not.

It is for this reason that the radio we choose to listen to should be carefully chosen. Allowing worldly media to root itself in our minds can be very dangerous. Though it may be stimulating, we need to guard ourselves against content that can harm our relationship with Christ. Fortunately, there is another option that is both stimulating, entertaining, and exceedingly beneficial to our Catholic faith.

Current Events and Politics from a Catholic PerspectiveRelevant Radio Logo

Whether you love politics or would rather have nothing to do with them, it is valuable to understand the current state of our world from a positive Catholic viewpoint. Politics can be very stimulating and thought-provoking, and it is easy for us to draw conclusions and form opinions that are less than Christ-like. Having programming like the Drew Mariani Show, and A Closer Look with Sheila Liaugminas help us to understand and think through the issues facing us while boosting our faith.

Sound Wisdom and Solid Advice

We all face numerous choices and challenges every day. Some seem small and insignificant while others may be life-altering and painful. It is so easy for us to lose sight of our faith in these times of trial, and begin to question the truth we need to cling to. Programs including Go Ask Your Father, and On Call provides programming that helps answer those questions and guide us to a better relationship with Christ. Even if you do not call in and ask a question you are struggling with, you may be surprised to learn how many others have the same challenges.

So Much More

These are just a few of the stimulating programs provided through Catholic talk radio, but there are many others. Whether you are intently listening, or it is playing in the background of your life, the benefits it provides to your mind, body, and spirit should not be underestimated. If you find yourself in the habit of listening to radio programming that seems mindless, or worse, that is harmful to your faith, perhaps it is time to give Catholic talk radio a try. Catholic talk radio is right at your fingertips and couldn’t be easier to access both over the air and online. Give it a try, and see for yourself the stimulating and beneficial programming that can truly make a difference in your day.
