The National Catholic Register Wins Best Catholic Newspaper Award for Two Consecutive Years
Irondale, AL – The National Catholic Register has won the About.com 2012 Readers’ Choice Award for Best Catholic Newspaper for the second year in a row. Now in its fifth year, the About.com Readers’ Choice Awards honor the best products, features and services across more than a dozen categories, ranging from technology to hobbies to parenting and more, as selected by About.com readers. The Register was nominated in five different categories.
“This year’s Readers’ Choice Awards program had a record number of nominations submitted across dozens of categories and featured hundreds of finalists,” said Margot Weiss, managing editor of About.com. “We are thankful to all our readers for their participation and congratulate the National Catholic Register on their success.”
The National Catholic Register has been under the direction of EWTN Global Catholic Network since February, 2011. “Just over a year ago, the Register became an important part of the EWTN family. This award is a great affirmation that the content of the Register continues to meet the needs of the faithful as they grapple with the challenges of our times,” said Michael Warsaw, EWTN’s president and chief executive officer and the publisher of the National Catholic Register.
“All signs are pointing upwards for the Register,” said Dan Burke, executive director of the National Catholic Register. “We continue to beat our monthly subscription goals, which is remarkable for a print publication in this day and age.”
The Register’s mission is to deliver a measure of hope and confidence in every issue and combat the culture’s aggressive disregard for the sanctity of human life, traditional family values and reverence for our faith. “The impact that the Register is able to have on the Church — by informing and inspiring people about the key issues of the day — is a blessing our entire team is proud to be a part of,” said Warsaw. “We pray that God continues to bless our efforts, as we work in faith to be the newspaper of record for the Church in America.”
