Catholic Library Association Honors
‘EWTN Bookmark’ Host Doug Keck
Keck hosts “EWTN Bookmark,” one of EWTN’s most popular and enduring programs. The show gives Catholic authors a worldwide platform on which to showcase their works and viewers have their faith strengthened by reading and sharing some of the world’s best Catholic books. Keck was the originator of “EWTN Bookmark” and has been the host since its inception in 1998.
“As an organization, we are grateful that your discussions with Catholic authors reach a large audience and assist in our work of providing religious materials for the public,” said CLA Interim Executive Director, Malachy R. McCarthy.
Keck was especially honored to receive this award because “EWTN Bookmark” is a show that is close to his heart.
“There are so many great Catholic authors who need the opportunity to get in front of a large audience, and so many people whose lives can be changed by the teachings they impart,” he said. “I am blessed, with the assistance of my long-time producer, Lee South, to be able to bring these books to the world’s attention and grateful to the CLA for its recognition of our efforts.”
