A Catholic Voice For Northern Michigan

THE INCEPTION OF BARAGA BROADCASTING Baraga Broadcasting, is part of a new and exciting phenomenon that is reaching across the nation's and world's landscape-Catholic Radio! ... See more The inspiration to bring Catholic Radio into the Diocese of Gaylord and Marquette began with Knights of Columbus insurance agent Tom McMahon. Initially, Tom was inspired and transformed when he accidentally stumbled upon a radio station while driving his car. The station was Ave Maria Radio (WDEO) in Ann Arbor, Michigan. When Tom opted to relocate to Northern Michigan, he shared this dream with Bishop Patrick Cooney. Duly impressed, the bishop directed Tom to Fr. Harry Speckman of Cross in the Woods Shrine-Parish, who had similar ideas about the effectiveness of radio as an evangelizing tool. Thus began the venture now named Baraga Broadcasting, Inc. The name Baraga Broadcasting was derived from the famous Bishop Frederic Baraga, better known as the "Snow Shoe Priest". Subsequent to these two men sharing their dream, Baraga Broadcasting has now blossomed into a well organized initiative. They assembled an amazingly talented development committee with expertise in business, accounting, sales, banking, broadcasting, media technology and theology. Furthermore, as required by the corporation's bylaws, a Board of Directors with exemplary credentials has been seated, including Bishop Bernard Hebda, Ordinary of the Diocese of Gaylord. Baraga Broadcasting is a corporation with a non-profit 501(c)3 status, mission statement, bylaws, business plan and development strategy. Specific committees have been formed in the areas of marketing, fund-raising, technical advisory, engineering and finance. Baraga Broadcasting, now has four Catholic Radio stations on the air 24 hours a day, seven days a week. WTCK 90.9 FM (Main Broadcast Facility) with its studio in Indian River, WIDG 940 AM St. Ignace, W221CA 92.1 FM in Gaylord and W237CF 95.3 FM in Mackinaw City. We are also transmitting on a sub-carrier belonging to MacDonald Broadcasting. Subsequently, our mission to bring Catholic Radio to the Diocese of Gaylord and Marquette is in motion. With your prayers, support and contributions--it will come full-circle. Praise God!
