Sacred Heart's radio station does more than cater to the Sacred Heart community. They cater to their listeners. And their listeners, in turn, support the station. “We feel it's critical to be in the communities covering local news stories,” says development director Gillian Anderson. Listeners can expect the amount of local programming and content to increase over the next few months as well, with the acquisition of two AM stations in Fairfield County. “Being funded by listeners means we're not subject to the ups and downs of the economy,” says general manager George Lombardi. “Our programming is not driven by commercial influence,” he says. The station also promotes local nonprofit organizations, in order to help those organizations better serve the community. “These organizations are really important to us, and we like to partner with them and help them promote all of their good work,” Anderson says.
