Last edited 25th March 2014

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 RIEDEMANNDirector 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.”

The Separation of Church and State - Christopher Stefanick
Last edited 23rd March 2014
