KSWZ-LP, The Sword, is a low-powered FM station broadcasting at a frequency of 105.3 . As is true of all LPFM stations, The Sword is non-commercial. That means it relies entirely on its listeners' donations and underwriting for financial support.
Veteran radio broadcaster, Lee O'Day, joins us as our programming director and on-air personality. Being an EWTN affiliate station, Lee has access to all of EWTN's radio programs and has chosen from their very best of to craft our line-up.
Completing the line-up , Lee will be producing Morning Prayer and Praise, featuring daily Mass readings and prayer from the Daily Office. In the evenings he'll air the Family Rosary for Peace, which will feature families throughout the area praying a decade of the rosary. This will be a work in progress as new families are added.
The Sword's over-the-air footprint has the potential to reach about 70,000 souls with God's Word. See the coverage map. Within this area are thousands of young, college-aged adults whose formation may be shaped, in part, by Catholic radio before they go out to make their own impact on our society and our parishes.
On the internet, the potential is unlimited. Listen Live on your computer or download the apps for your iOS device or Android. We are everywhere you are. Leveraging this accessibility, The Sword is poised to become the regional voice of Catholic radio to the 9 counties of the western Archdiocese of Kansas City, in KS and beyond.
