About Tri-State Catholic Radio and WTJW

WTJW took to the air at 93.1 FM in October 2015. Then-Bishop Charles C. Thompson of Evansville, now Archbishop of Indianapolis, granted the station status as a Catholic media outlet for five years by decree. Bishop Joseph M. Siegel has renewed that status for another five years. The station broadcasts 24/7, and its signal reaches the vast majority of homes in Dubois County and slightly beyond. WTJW is licensed by the Federal Communications Commission as a Low Power FM station.

WTJW is totally listener supported. It is a 501-C-3 nonprofit and, as such, does not broadcast or solicit paid advertising or other commercial income.

Steve Leugers of Jasper serves as president of WTJW 93.1, and Ralph Turpen of Newburgh in Warrick County is vice-president/engineer of the station. Linda Leugers and Julie Stone serve as administrative coordinators.

In addition to EWTN Radio programming, the station offers live broadcasts of special local events through the year. Local guests appear on a regular basis to update listeners on organizations’ activities and needs. WTJW also broadcasts public service announcements for local Catholic events and ministries.
