EWTN Nightly News – A Hit in the Making

September 4th, 2013, Promulgated by DanielKane

I have long been a  both a fan and a critic of EWTN. A fan of its doctrinal orthodoxy, liturgy and catechetics.  A critic of its mediocre production values and its consistent focus on catechesis to the near exclusion of most everything else. My criticism is not directed to the content but the presentation. The EWTN Nightly (at the present weekly) News is a refreshing change for the better.  The production values are on par with any media outlet – CNN, Fox, NBC. The lighting and sound are excellent and if this show represents their “first draft” well, move over MSM; EWTN is here.

Colleen Carol-Campbell (whose essays and columns I admire greatly) has made a great transition to TV news media. She is very sharp, nimble on her feet and not afraid to ask direct questions after actually listening to the previous answer. Which is very rare.

Two thumbs up to an excellent first draft of a Catholic-centric news program.

    Her book “The New Faithful: Why Young Adults are Embracing Christian Orthodoxy” is stellar. She even saw the trend towards good liturgy (among young adults) prior to the election of Ratzinger to the papacy. She also gave an absolutely splendid commencement address this past May in Steubenville. (can be found on Youtube) She is an absolutely brilliant, lovely, and professional woman. Kudos to EWTN.

    I tried to find it on today’s EWTN line-up and it wasn’t there. I was wondering why a nightly show wouldn’t be on a weeknight. I did a search on the show and see that even though it is called “EWTN Nightly News” it is actually a weekly news show at this time, intending to go nightly, but they want us to get used to the name now, so when it switches later its not confusing. So I am sharing this in case anyone else is confused on this.
