Brussels, June 18, 2019 (Zenit / Vatican News) The Archdiocese of Singapore has launched “The Catholic Singapore Radio”. The project was inaugurated on June 2, which coincided with the World Communication Day.
“This is a new concept of radio. It is an online streaming platform on which to channel a stream of podcasts and audio content. It is available through an App and will also be available for web streaming via the Internet through our website”, explained Andre Ahchak, Director of Social Communications in the Archdiocese.
Illustrating the reason for the project, Ahchak stated: “It is a way to reach and bring the proclamation of the Gospel through new technologies. We wanted to broaden the horizon and also connect with those who can or loves to listen. We see that the trend of podcasts is becoming increasingly popular especially in the last year. So we asked ourselves: can we share the Gospel of Jesus with listeners? This gave us the impulse to start the radio project”.
