The Archdiocese of Agana and Catholic Radio KOLG 90.9 FM have been pleased to welcome the work and talents of Caleb White for the summer. The 19-year-old son of Chuck and Aggie White has been working as a summer intern with the Office of Communications and KOLG since June 28, 2021. He'll be on board until the first week of August when he returns off-island to resume studies at Assumption University in Worchester, Massachusetts. He is majoring in English and Organizational Communication.
Caleb was a dedicated volunteer with KOLG for several years, providing valuable help with programming and supporting features such as the "Why Do Catholics Do That?" program in a number of ways. The Catholic Communications Summer Internship is funded by Catholic Extension Society.

From the Director of Communications
The immense kindheartedness of our people showed itself once again and we are filled with gratitude.
Hundreds filled the Sheraton Hotel Ballroom at upper Tumon on Friday, June 21 to support our archdiocesan radio station during the KOLG “Save Our Station” Gala fundraising dinner.
Father Joel de los Reyes and the passionate members of the Guam Divine Mercy Apostolate did a splendid job planning and hosting the event which proved to be a wonderful and overwhelming success in more ways than one.
The archdiocese raised $54,815.00 in gross proceeds from the gala. After costs related to rental of the hotel ballroom and other expenses are deducted, we’re looking at a net total of about $40,000 from this event alone.
On behalf of Archbishop Michael Byrnes, Vicar General Father Jeff San Nicolas, our Curia, the Office of Communications and KOLG 90.9 FM, we express sincerest gratitude to everyone for their support.
