Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) is the recipient of the Irondale Commercial Development Authority (CDA) Business of the Month award for March 2015. This monthly award is presented to an Irondale business that exemplifies; excellence in their industry and a solid commitment to community partnering.
When Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN) was launched on August 15, 1981, many felt there would be little demand for a Catholic network. Now, in its 34th year, EWTN has become the largest religious media network in the world, transmitting programming 24 hours a day to more than 238 million homes in 140 countries and territories on more than 4,800 cable systems, wireless cable, Direct Broadcast Satellite (DBS), low power TV and individual satellite users.
The Irondale CDA will host a special award reception this month in honor of EWTN. Irondale officials will be in attendance along with EWTN CEO, Michael Warsaw. According to Darryl Washington, Irondale CDA Chairman, ” EWTN exemplifies excellence in business and is a globally recognized brand. We are proud to call EWTN a true neighbor in the Irondale community.”
