Faith With Frequency!

  1. To equip faith-filled Catholics with the tools they need to live and share their Faith and to draw our youth into wholeheartedly embracing the Faith

  2. To draw inactive Catholics back to the Church and to bring others into the Catholic faith

  3. To connect the Catholics of Northwest and North Central Ohio with each other and with the Bishop of the Toledo Diocese. We follow the teachings of the Magisterium of the Catholic Church and are in full communion with our Holy Father Pope Francis.

Annunciation Radio is a Catholic media apostolate. In response to God’s call, our mission is to proclaim the truth in love. Our goals are to evangelize, educate, and encourage God’s people through the use of broadcast and other media.

Following the call of The New Evangelization, the goal of Annunciation Radio is to bear witness and proclaim the truths of the Catholic Faith to the people in a fresh, positive way. Our media will help enable listeners to experience a personal and profound meeting with the Savior in presenting the teachings of Christ and His Church.
