Catholic Business Network Breakfast on Faith, Media and the Election

On Friday, Sept. 9, the Catholic Business Network will host its monthly breakfast. This month the networking event will feature a panel of Catholic journalists discussing this year’s election and how they report on the Church.

The panel features longtime journalists Pat Ciarrocchi, Bill Roswell and Monica Avery and will be moderated by Michael Walsh, Director of Communications, Diocese of Camden.

Philadelphia’s longest tenured female anchor, before retiring earlier this year, Pat Ciarrocchi has been a trusted source for local news for more than 30 years. She has anchored several CBS3 programs and received numerous awards including multiple Emmy Awards.

As KYW Newsradio’s Director of Digital News and Media, Bill Roswell has reported on and helped direct coverage of many of the biggest events in the station’s history, including the 1985 MOVE confrontation, Live Aid and Live 8, and the elections of Pope Benedict in 2005 and Pope Francis in 2013. He has received numerous awards over the years, including an Edward R. Murrow award for coverage of the death of Pope John Paul II.

Monica Avery is an Emmy Award-winning Producer of CBS3 Eyewitness News at 5PM. A graduate of Temple University, she worked her way through the journalism ranks of newspapers, radio and TV in and around the South Jersey area. Monica is most proud of her work producing live TV coverage for non-profit fundraising efforts, including CBS3’s “Alex Scott: A Stand for Hope Telethon,” which has helped raise millions of dollars for childhood cancer research.
