Catholic Radio and Television Network: A new way to look at Christian unity through shows

2014-03-16

Catholics and Orthodox may not have the same Pope, but they can still enjoy the same Christian TV shows

That's where the Catholic Radio and Television Network comes in. It's an online platform where producers can find and use Christian content in Spanish, English and Russian.

MARK RIEDEMANN
Director and Head of English Programming, CRTN 
"What this means, I hope, is that programs that previously would have been limited to their market, for example, Spanish programs in  Spanish markets, English programs in the English market and the Russian programs in the Russian markets suddenly can translate across borders.” 

In the late 80's Russia played a key role in making CRTN a reality. Twenty five years later, it now has its own online platform, offering content to its sister stations, through the umbrella of ecumenism. 

NICK GORYACHKIN
Russian Department, CRTN
"We are kind of the model between Orthodox and Catholic.  We are the model for dialogue between two Church sisters. What John Paul II said, we're two Church sisters, we have to be above the contradictions.”

Latin America is the third leg of CRTN. The mission of the platform remains the same, which is keeping  producers, broadcasters and the Church connected, despite all the logistical challenges that come very now and then. 

LEANDRO LANZOTTI
Responsable Spanish speaking Department, CRTN
"We help publicize the products of those that don't have a structure or marketing department because of their low budget. So we publicize those shows in Spanish speaking markets and also in other places around the globe.” 

So with a network of producers from all over the world, CRTN says one of its main goals is giving and publicizing high Christian quality content across the board.
