CBS RADIO News KYW-A/PHILADELPHIA has launched a special HD RADIO digital channel devoted to the POPE's pending visit to the DELAWARE VALLEY. "POPECAST" is airing around the clock on sister Top 40 WZMP (AMP 96.5)'s HD3 channel and online at CBSPHILLY.COM.
The programming, produced by KYW's staff, includes interviews with officials responsible for the events, travel information, security, housing, logistics, and reports about the 1979 Papal visit to PHILADELPHIA. The channel will also complete coverage of POPE FRANCIS' appearances, including the SEPTEMBER 27th Papal mass.
Dir. of News and Programming STEVE BUTLER said, “We’re excited to provide this great information service when there are so many important aspects of the POPE’s visit. HD RADIO technology allows us to offer listeners a wide variety of niche programming and this is a great demonstration of its capabilities whether you’re listening in your car, home, or online."
