Canada’s Salt and Light Television receives 2008 Gabriel Award for “Television Station of the Year”

August 5, 2008
Canada's Salt and Light Catholic Television Network has been chosen as recipient of the 2008 Gabriel Award for "Television Station of the Year" by the Catholic Academy for Communications Arts Professionals. The news was made public on July 30, 2008 by the Catholic Academy's Headquarters in Dayton, Ohio.
The Gabriel Awards were established in 1965 by the Catholic Broadcasters Association "to recognize oustanding artistic achievement in a television or radio program or series which entertains and enriches with a true vision of humanity and a true vision or life."
The Salt and Light Catholic Television Network was founded only five years ago at the conclusion of World Youth Day 2002 in Canada. Upon learning of the award, Salt and Light CEO Fr. Thomas Rosica, C.S.B. said: "It is a great honor for us to be awarded the prestigious Gabriel Award, not for a specific program but rather for our entire network! Much has been accomplished over the past five years, and our Salt and Light team of young adults is the greatest asset of this wonderful project of the New Evangelization. The Gabriel Award is a tribute to their dedication, commitment and key roles in Catholic Media in North America."
The Gabriel Awards will be presented at a ceremony on October 25, 2008 at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, California.
