A Conversation with Mary Higgins Clark

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Yesterday, my co-host, Father Dave Dwyer, and I had the pleasure of interviewing best selling author Mary Higgins Clark for our weekly radio show, A Conversation with the Archbishop, on Sirius XM Satellite Radio. Also joining us on the show was Brother Peter Bray, Vice Chancellor of Bethlehem University in the Holy Land.

Here are some photos from the taping.

Congratulations to Rob Astorino, the fine Program Director of The Catholic Channel on Sirius XM Satellite Radio, who cruised to victory Tuesday evening and is now the newly elected County Executive of Westchester County.

Rob has served the Catholic Channel well, and I’ve very much enjoyed working with him.  A few years ago, he came to Milwaukee to interview me for The Catholic Channel, and back in February, on the day my appointment to New York was announced, Rob interviewed me and Cardinal Egan.  In April, we began our weekly program, Conversation with the Archbishop which I have immensely enjoyed.

Just a few weeks ago, Rob and his lovely wife, Sheila had their third child, a beautiful young girl named Ashlin who joins big brother Sean and big sister Kiley.  My prayers and best wishes are with Rob as he undertakes his new responsibilities as a father and County Executive.
