Wilmington Catholic Radio’s 15th Anniversary on Carolina Catholic!

Start date: June 15, 2019 - End date: June 16, 2019

Wilmington Catholic Radio’s 15th Anniversary on Carolina Catholic!

For our June show, we celebrate the 15th anniversary of Wilmington Catholic Radio which went on the air in July 2004. We chat with Board members Bill Hamilton, Jim Edens, and Greg Decker. Bill will recount his idea for founding the radio station after he heard the Apparitions of Our Lady tape by Bud McFarland, Sr. Bill felt called to learn more about his faith, and the idea for a Catholic radio station in Wilmington was born.

Bill invited Jim Edens to join the Board and enlisted Greg Decker's help whose expertise in computers was the perfect fit when the Board had a vacancy. Over the years, these men have worked tirelessly to expand the coverage of Catholic radio including Southport.

This show will air on Saturday, June 15th at 11:00 a.m. and Sunday, June 16th at 6:00 p.m.
