Dear HRA families,
It is very exciting to share with you that HRA is involved with the new Catholic radio station project in Anchorage. Here is a brief note to inform you of what is happening:
Catholic radio is an important component of the new evangelization. A recent survey of listeners found that 94% became more spiritually engaged as a result, while 63% felt better prepared to hand on the faith to their children. This is a phenomenal effect and demonstrates that without a doubt, KHRM will have a positive impact in Anchorage.
KHRM is licensed as a low power FM station that will be located at 94.1 on the dial. It will originate in south Anchorage and have a reach of seven miles, covering much of the Anchorage bowl. Plans call for the first transmission by August 1, 2015.
Once transmitting, the station will stream EWTN radio content around the clock. Gradually, local content will be added.
Although KHRM is owned by Holy Rosary Academy, the station must generate its own means of support. Therefore, donations are essential to establishing and maintaining the station.
