Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) is the dominant Catholic religious television and radio network in the United States. EWTN claims to be the largest religious media network in the world.

Founded by Mother Angelica in the early 1980s, it is headquartered in Irondale, Alabama.

The network is operated by a Franciscan order but is solely supported by viewer and listener donations; it does not receive funding from the Catholic Church or any of its orders, nor any of its media partners; it also does not sell commercial advertising.

In addition to its broadcasts it owns the National Catholic Register (which it purchased in 2011) along with the Catholic News Agency.

Programming

EWTN's programming consists of shows of many different genres, such as talk shows, documentaries, newscasts, music, documentaries, and live broadcasts from the Vatican. Every day, there is a Mass broadcast live from Irondale Church and Monastery.

In 2016 the network released a documentary about Marxist community organizer, author and activist Saul Alinsky titled A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing.[1][2][3]
