An Oklahoma broadcaster calls the expansion of a Catholic radio network an example of divine orchestration.

He said the network has been offering limited programming on KTLR AM 890. He said the new station that will feature the expanded programming is KKNG on the following frequencies: 97.3 FM in Oklahoma City, 94.9 FM in Tulsa, 88.3 AM in Lawton, 88.3 FM in Prague, 105.7 FM in Bristow and 90.3 FM in Antlers.

Finnell said after the two weeks of overlapping programming, the network will air Spanish-language programming from 5 p.m. until dusk on KTLR AM 890.

He said a thrill for him is the realization that the network will now be able to provide live coverage of the coming papal election because the network is an affiliate of Eternal Word Television Network, an international TV, radio and news network.

Finnell said the timing of the network's expansion couldn't be better as Catholics across the globe await papal succession.

“Now, by our coverage with the Oklahoma Catholic Broadcasting Network, we'll be able to share that moment with radio listeners across Oklahoma.”
