Catholic 540-AM Divine Mercy Radio is starting its Spring 2022 Live On-Air Pledge Drive on Wednesday April 27 through Friday April 29.

We need new and returning donors to donate money to keep our listener supported radio station ON THE AIR.

Donations and business underwriting are how Divine Mercy Radio raises its operating funds.

Please use the red donate button on our web site (catholic540am.org) to make your monthly or one-time pledge now. You can also call 919-300-5400 and make your donation by phone.

Divine Mercy Radio is introducing TWO NEW DONOR SOCIETIES to recognize and thank our most loyal supporters for their commitment to sharing our faith with listeners across the state and around the globe!!

The first donor club is the Saint Monica Society, which is modeled after the faithfulness of St. Monica as she fervently prayed that her son St. Augustine would return to the Church. Open to monthly donors of $25 or more, the Saint Monica Society is central to Divine Mercy Radio’s strategy to lovingly invite fallen-away Catholics back into the arms of Mother Church through consistent prayer and effective radio programming.

The second donor club is the Broadcasters Circle, which is built upon Christ’s parable of the sower, who broadcast seed across the landscape in the hope that it will one day bear fruit. Members of the Broadcasters Circle make an annual commitment of $1,000 or more, and they join in our mission to broadcast the seeds of faith across Central and Eastern North Carolina in the sure hope that Christ’s message will take root in the fertile ground of our listeners’ souls.

During our Spring 2022 Live On-Air Pledge Drive, each and every gift to join the Broadcasters Circle or the Saint Monica Society will be positioned as a challenge gift to listeners across our broadcast area. This means that your gift will not only support Catholic Radio’s mission of Saving Souls for Christ, but will encourage passive listeners to get engaged in the daily work of the New Evangelization!

Whether you join the Saint Monica Society, the Broadcasters Circle or simply make a one-time pledge, please give whatever amount you can to help keep Catholic radio on the air across eastern and central North Carolina.

Donate to Divine Mercy Radio today, thank you and God bless you.

On a day where hundreds and hundreds gathered together in Raleigh to celebrate the value of human life and the unborn, radio listeners in Raleigh and Charlotte, North Carolina heard the birth of the (unofficial) North Carolina Catholic Radio Network.

With a team of volunteer engineers, producers, anchors and support staff from Catholic 540-AM Divine Mercy Radio (WETC-AM) stationed at Raleigh’s Bicentennial Plaza (and our Raleigh studio) to broadcast live from the annual North Carolina Right to Life Rally and March on January 15th, the almost 3 year old non-commercial radio station made a little radio history in North Carolina.

WETC’s live remote broadcast from the state’s premier Pro-Life event marked the first intrastate Catholic radio broadcast within North Carolina.

Catholic 540-AM Divine Mercy Radio anchored the transmission of the NCRTL Rally & March from Raleigh with AM-1270 Carolina Catholic Radio (WCGC-AM) simulcasting Divine Mercy Radio’s more than 90 minute live broadcast to Carolina Catholic Radio’s audience in Charlotte.

In addition to their combined potential radio audience of almost 4 million people within WETC & WCGC’s broadcast signals, the live broadcast was also streamed on each Catholic radio station’s web site and free app for iPhone and Android phones. Both Catholic radio stations (which are separately owned and operated) are 100% listener supported.
