EWTN Global Catholic Network appoints Catholic leader and news show anchor Montse Alvarado as been named President and Chief Operating Officer of EWTN News Inc., effective March 6. Alvarado will oversee EWTN's global news media platforms, which create content in English, Spanish, German, French, Portuguese, Arabic and Italian. Its holdings include Catholic News Agency, the National Catholic Register, the ACI Group, ChurchPop and a lineup of radio and television news programming.

"As a seasoned executive, Montse will bring new energy and perspective to our global news services," said EWTN Chairman and CEO Michael P. Warsaw. "Her background in organizational management, understanding of the Church, and experience in the public square are key elements that make her ideal for this role. This combination of skills will allow EWTN News to become even stronger in delivering critical reporting and analysis."

Alvarado began her career at the Becket Fund, a non-profit defending religious freedom as a human right at the Supreme Court, and rose to its leadership over the span of 14 years of service. In that time, the team secured 12 victories at the Supreme Court on behalf of Little Sisters of the Poor, Muslim death-row prisoners, as well as charitable groups, such as Philadelphia Catholic Social Services, among others.

Alvarado serves as the founding anchor of the news program "EWTN News in Depth." Celebrating two years on air this March, the show was launched as a weekly one-hour discussion of current events in the Church, politics, and culture, from a Catholic perspective.

"Montse and the 'EWTN News In Depth' team understand how to bring the news to our viewership worldwide -- covering the underreported stories and clarifying the Church's position on key teachings with a focus on the laity's needs and concerns," said Warsaw. "In its nearly two years on air, this show has been a model of how to cover the issues facing the Church and the world today by reflecting the universality of the Church and diversifying the voices featured in the discussion."

"Mother Angelica's vision for EWTN was entrepreneurial, committed to excellence, and reliant on Providence," said Alvarado. "The team at EWTN is remarkable and called for such a time as this to respond to the need for Truth in journalism. I look forward to leading this team of news professionals to play our necessary part in bolstering civil society through the free press."
