Divine Mercy Radio brought up WETC on 540AM February 4, 2019 at 3:55pm. We are blessed to broadcast the excellent EWTN programs which spread the truth and beauty of the Catholic Faith. Our signal covers much of Central and Eastern North Carolina. Please see our map below for coverage area.
Many thanks to our generous donors who have made it possible to bring local Catholic radio to our area. We truly could not have done this without you! We urge all our listeners to help keep Divine Mercy Radio on the air by going to our DONATE page and starting a monthly donation today.

Please know that many AM stations are required by the FCC to lower their power at night. WETC is just such a station. See the Full Power Hours page for a list of times of full power and reduced power. Our next goal is to get an upgrade to our night power from the FCC. More prayers, more engineering, and yes, more donations will be needed to make this upgrade. Together we can do this.

After moving to Wake Forest from Long Island a few years ago, I began to sense that the Lord was calling me to apply to the seminary to discern the priesthood. However, I was afraid to heed His call. I was comfortable working as a teacher and I didn’t want my life to change. However, Jesus was persistent and would keep calling me for the next six years. I would listen to Divine Mercy Radio every day while driving to work and I kept hearing stories about the priesthood and listeners speaking about their own vocational struggles. One day, I heard a young man discussing his decision to apply to the seminary and how happy he was that he did. I knew that I couldn’t run from Jesus any longer. As a seminarian for the Diocese of Raleigh, I am truly grateful for Divine Mercy Radio for giving me the courage to apply to the seminary. May our Lord bless Divine Mercy Radio and may Our Blessed Mother watch over all who listen to this remarkable radio station!
