Media History - Radio and Television
The Early 90's
Raymond has been involved in most of the major forms of media, print, radio, television, and now internet.
Wherever he has lived, he has produced articles and newsletters to expound and clarify the faith and social issues. A major part of his initial outreach was radio programs.
In New Zealand, his first radio broadcast show was "Crossroads Challenge". It was produced in cooperation with the Alternative Ministry of the Auckland diocese. In Christchurch, he ran "Mission: Possible!", supported by the diocesan bishop, the Most Reverend Basil Meeking.
"Sounds Catholic" in Western Australia was sponsored by the Most Rev. Barry Hickey, Archbishop of Perth. In his section, "Radio Replies", Raymond answered write-in questions on faith and morals. Its success led to a live, call-in talk show called "The Laymanís Hour" which he and his wife, Theresa, produced for two years. Every Sunday evening they punched out news, interviews, reports and animated exchanges with callers, all themed on the defense of the Faith, apologetics and socio-political issues.
Within the last five years
Raymond has featured on the Eternal World Television Network - EWTN. His first series, "Good or Evil: Who Decides?" explored the nature of morality in light of the individual, the state, pressure groups and God. His second series, "Jesus Christ, True God and True Man" is a masterly defence of Jesus' divinity in the face of the growth of secularism, agnosticism and Islam.
His continued travels worldwide have sparked invitations to television shows and radio stations worldwide. Some of the major media outlets that have interviewed Raymond on apologetics, pro-life and socio-political issues:
