The Catholic Channel is a Roman Catholic lifestyle radio station on Sirius XM Satellite Radio (Channel 129) and is operated by the Archdiocese of New York. It carries daily and Sunday Mass live from St. Patrick's Cathedral, as well as talk shows, educational programming and a small amount of music. Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan, Archbishop of New York, is a regular contributor. The channel also is the home for the play-by-play of University of Notre Dame football and basketball.

Most of the programming consists of call-in talk shows hosted by Roman Catholic personalities, such as the Busted Halo Show, featuring a Catholic Priest with the Paulist Fathers. Catholic doctrine and lifestyle is discussed, such as current events, political issues, comedy, psychological issues, family life, among other things. The channel is an arm of the Archdiocese of New York in Manhattan.


The Catholic Channel was founded by Cardinal Edward Egan, Archbishop Emeritus of New York, in 2006.[1] The intention of the channel is to discuss Catholicism in a nontraditional manner, serving as an alternative to other Catholic media programs like EWTN. It began broadcasting on Sirius Satellite Radio channel 159 on December 4, 2006. Initial personalities still on the air include Lino Rulli, producer and former television host, Gus Lloyd, radio veteran, and Father Dave Dwyer, ordained priest. Cardinal Edward Egan also hosted a show, A Conversation with the Cardinal, before being replaced by current Cardinal Archbishop of New York Timothy M. Dolan.
