THE Catholic FM 103.7 radio station in Lae is back on air after five months.
The station stopped broadcasting last December after its old STL link was damaged, but, with support from local business Prima Small Goods, the station was able to resume its broadcast.
Station director Fr Brian Nonde CMM said the station and church was delighted to be back on air.
“Catholic FM 103.7 is a means of mass communication for the Catholic church in Morobe,” he said. “We will now resume our role of providing our listeners with valuable and inspirational messages, praise and worship songs.”
Fr Brian said the station would be broadcasting live masses, health programmes, educational programmes, important announcements and information concerning local events from both the church and the Morobe government.
He thanked local businesses for their help and acknowledged the church’s confreres overseas.
“Catholic FM 103.7 will continue to work with Radio Maria in Port Moresby. Between 8am and 5pm, Catholic FM radio will be airing the local programmes from within Morobe, and at night, it will switch to the programmes from Port Moresby on Radio Maria.”
Fr Brian said the quality of the broadcast reception would be improved and listeners could also follow the station on social media platforms such as Facebook and YouTube.
He said Snyder William, the new associate, would be helping with the live video programmes such as the bishops liturgy of mass and short inspiring videos.
