The Catholic Archdiocese of Monrovia has announced Mr. Frank Sainworla, Jr as the new station Manger of the Catholic owned Radio Veritas.
Mr. Sainworla, who first worked for the Catholic Media outfit as News Director for six years until his departure in 2008 for the West Africa Democratic Radio, WADR in Dakar, Senegal, has been charged with the responsibility of overseeing the re-vamping and restructuring the “new Radio Veritas”.
The Catholic run radio station was shut down by the Church in Monrovia in October 2012 and its paid off to enable the re-vamping and restructuring to make it serviceable and people oriented in terms of content and programs.
In his appointment letter signed by Catholic Archbishop Lewis J. Zeigler dated June 9, 2013, Mr. Sainworla has been urged to uphold the values and aspirations of Radio Veritas.
In acceptance of the position, Mr. Sainworla assured the Catholic Church that he was prepared to work with the team to revive the station which had in the past been renowned for its commitment to pursuing the truth, being the voice of the voiceless and promoting good Journalism and high ethical standards.
Mr. Sainworla maintained that his acceptance was made after sober reflection and based on the high esteem he personally has for the office of the Archbishop and in honour of his predecessor, the late Archbishop Emeritus Michael K. Francis.
The Station is expected to start official broadcast in early August with its regular programs including its hall mark news programs, News break and News Update which were aired at 1:30pm and 9:30pm respectively.
