Host Matt Weber to Appear on Live Talk Show of the CatholicTV® Network
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WATERTOWN, MA (August 20, 2012) – Host Matt Weber to Appear on Live Talk Show of the CatholicTV® Network
On Tuesday, August 21, 2012, Matt Weber, host of the award-winning program, ClearVoice™, will appear on the CatholicTV Network’s nationally broadcasted live talk show; This is the Day to discuss his debut book, Fearing the Stigma.
In Fearing the Stigmata, twenty-something Matt Weber—a Harvard graduate, television producer, and certified rosary-bead carrier—employs his sharp wit, earnest candor, and gift for great storytelling to illustrate for young adult Catholics both the real challenges and the immense joys of publicly living out the Catholic faith. The fact that Weber has discovered a way to have a deep, ever-growing faith life that also manages to be culturally relevant will offer hope to many currently disengaged Catholics in the 18-to-35 age range.
From smuggling ice-cream sundaes into cloistered convents to telling jokes to an outdoor statue of Mary at a busy intersection in Boston, Fearing the Stigmata amusingly but honestly explores the tension this layman experiences between wanting to be holy yet “fearing being made holey,” and wanting to be good yet not wanting the cost to be too high.
As a producer for CatholicTV, Weber hosts a weekly segment called “A Word with Weber”, which airs internationally to over 10 million viewers each week on ClearVoice™, which features news, topical stories of interest to Catholic and Christian viewers, a variety of different segments and reports from Rome and the Holy Land.
Weber is a frequent contributor to the Huffington Post and is also the host and producer of the Harvard Graduate School of Education's popular education podcast “The Harvard EdCast.” A series of conversations with thought leaders in the field of education from across the country and around the world, the Harvard EdCast candidly engages with guests from Governor Jeb Bush to Academy Award winner Davis Guggenheim on their contributions in the field. Matt Weber is a graduate of the Harvard Graduate School of Education where he is also the New and Social Media Officer.
This upcoming episode, along with all CatholicTV content can be found on www.CatholicTV.com for free, 24 hours a day.
