EWTN News Launches New TV Program

EWTN News is a service of EWTN Global Catholic Network


WASHINGTON, March 5, 2021 EWTN News In Depth, a new venture for EWTN News, is launching Friday, March 5th. The new one-hour show will be hosted by Montse Alvarado, who is well-known for her work as Vice President and Executive Director of the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty.


Unlike anything else on TV or online, EWTN News In Depth will be an exciting opportunity to provide a deeper analysis of the Catholic faith, the news, and where those two things intersect.

In discussing the show’s purpose, Michael Warsaw, EWTN’s CEO and Chairman of the Board, said: “My hope is that EWTN News In Depth becomes a resource for people around the globe that they can turn to have a better understanding of the most important, most significant issues that are impacting them today, but also impacting us for generations to come.”

Host Montse Alvarado added, “The Catholic Church is fundamentally about community. It’s about where you are and what matters to you. And after a year of global suffering, we really need it. This isn’t just a show, it’s an opportunity to hear and be heard, and re-discover our Catholic voice together.”

Facing the current moment, at home and around the world, is something Catholics can and should do with faith and confidence. EWTN News In Depth is the robust discussion that will empower Catholics with engaged and informed context that pays attention to their local narratives so that they may confidently live their faith in the world.

The inaugural show of EWTN News In Depth debuts this Friday, March 5th, at 8pm ET. This week’s distinguished guests include Cardinal Timothy Dolan (Archbishop of New York), Ramesh Ponnuru (American political pundit and journalist), and Erika Bachiochi (pro-life feminist legal scholar).

The show can be viewed each week on Fridays at 8pm ET or at one’s leisure online at
