Vatican Radio's Newscast

The Vatican Radio newscasts produced by the “Central Information Services” department provide millions of listeners daily throughout the world with their particular view of world events and of the life of the Church. The Italian-language newscasts alternate with those in English and French with timely reports on the activities of the Pope and the Holy See, the latest developments on the international scene and ecclesial issues all over the world. There are also newscasts in German. Polish, Spanish, and Portuguese which are produced in the respective language units. The Vatican Radio newscasts focus on a wide range of themes among which the safeguarding of human life and the family, the defence of human rights and religious liberty, with special attention paid to the south of the world, the explosion of the phenomenon of terrorism, and on the other hand, the intensive ecumenical and inter-religious efforts aimed at promoting peace. All these issues that in some way belong to the sphere of ethics and human conscience are the subject of interviews and in-depth reports. Listeners are provided with a reading of international affairs in the light of the Gospel and the teachings of the Church, with a special sensitivity towards those peoples and events normally ignored by the global media, and with the liberty and neutrality of the Church with respect to economic and political powers.
All of Vatican Radio’s newscasts broadcast on FM, MW, SW and via satellite can rely on planetary diffusion thanks to the hundreds of Catholic and non-Catholic radio stations that rebroadcast their transmissions.
“The Pope’s Radio” avails itself of the wire services of major international news agencies and a network of approximately 150 correspondents in order to keep abreast of the latest developments in the news as it breaks and can often offer on-the-spot reports.
The Internet website of the pontifical radio station (radiovaticana.org), besides furnishing a written text of the bulletin, also allows visitors to listen to the principal programmes and to follow the newscasts live or on demand. The website is updated in real time allowing the Radio to make the most of the visibility guaranteed by the Net. The numerous letters of appreciation to the various desks testify to this as do the “links” that on many of the journalistic but also private Websites re-launch the news published by Vatican Radio, directing the visitor to the source.
The words of Benedict XVI referring to the progress of the media always accompany us in our daily work: “An ever better understanding of the perspectives and responsibility that their development involves becomes necessary” in the search for truth as in the respect of human dignity (Audience to journalists, April 23, 2005).
