radio with real presence

Click here to read what the TN Register says about Risen Radio.

In an era when talk radio is the fastest growing and most popular format in the country, Tennessee Catholics have been silent. Until now.

Risen Radio, Inc is a non-profit, tax exempt Tennessee corporation formed by lay Catholics for the purpose of providing Catholic teaching, programming, and evangelization to the Middle Tennessee area. Phase 1 is complete; WRSN-88.1-FM, Lebanon is on the air and live.

WRSN serves over 100,000; blanketing Lebanon, Mt. Juliet, Gallatin, and Hartsville; and reaching parts of Nashville, Hendersonville, Portland, Westmoreland, and Lafayette. Fundraising for a new station in Nashville has begun, and then on to Cookeville.

We hope to be covering most of the diocese with Catholic radio in 2013, but we need your help!

“The era of missions is not over. Christ still needs generous men and women who will become messengers of the Good News to the ends of the earth. No believer in Christ, no institution of the Church can be separate from the supreme beauty of proclaiming Christ to all people” (Pope John Paul II).


Touching Lives, Saving Souls

     “Radio offers perhaps the closest equivalent today to what Jesus was
      able to do with large groups through his preaching” (Pope John Paul II,
      Address to the Catholic Media Association).
