Hi, my name is Michelle Laque Johnson and I am the Director of Communications at the EWTN Global Catholic Network in Irondale, Ala. and author of “Walking the Way of the Cross for Caregivers: How To Cope Practically, Emotionally, and Spiritually When a Loved One Has a Serious Illness,” available from EWTNRC.com: https://bit.ly/ERC91400. EWTN is the largest Catholic media network in the world — broadcasting to 425 million households in four languages on 11 networks in over 160 countries and territories!
EWTN platforms also include radio services transmitted through SIRIUS/XM, iHeart Radio, and over 600 domestic and international AM & FM radio affiliates; a worldwide shortwave radio service; one of the most visited Catholic websites in the U.S.; as well as EWTN Publishing, its book publishing division.
So who are we? What’s it like to work here? What are we planning to air in the coming months? Find out more in my “Inside EWTN” blog. Find it at http://insideewtn.wordpress.com!
Let me tell you a little bit about myself! I have worked in journalism and communications for more than 25 years, as Editor-in-Chief of an 85,000 circulation newspaper, as an editor/reporter for a metropolitan daily newspaper and several national publications, including “Investor’s Business Daily,” and now as Communications Director for the largest religious media network in the world.
I’ve given workshops for journalists at national and regional press conventions on how to use social media to expand their publications’ outreach and increase circulation, and have trained journalists on how to become an expert in their niche for a national publisher.
I also love using social media and other PR tools to promote organizational goals and create communities. I am the founder of the Facebook group, Caregivers of the Cross, https://www.facebook.com/groups/caregiversofthecross, and this blog. Please come join me at http://insideewtn.wordpress.com!
