Tonight at 7:30 p.m. (ET), the Diocese of Brooklyn's New Evangelization Television (NET) will launch Currents, a nightly half-hour news magazine program that is being billed as the first of its kind on Catholic television. The program will be available on cable in Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island and Manhattan, but viewers can also catch live streaming or download podcasts at the Currents Web site.
Deacon Greg Kandra (of The Deacon's Bench) is news director for Currents. NET, which was launched Dec. 8, is a new ministry of the Brooklyn Diocese, replacing The Prayer Channel in an attempt to reach a younger, hipper audience a la The Catholic Channel on Sirius/XM Satellite Radio.
