Special Lenten Series on the Seven Deadly Sins
Fabulous Guests on Iowa Catholic Radio Today … LISTEN AND ENJOY!
Rise and shine at 7am with Iowa Catholic Radio TODAY. You’ll get Jeanne Wells Weather, the news, sports and guests provide a warm and welcoming addition to your morning. Jon Leonetti, Mark Amadeo and Jeanne Wells have a special connection and all the credit goes to the Holy Spirit.
Jon Leonetti was raised Catholic, just like all three of us, and took a turn at seminary to discern a call to the priesthood. After walking across America with a buddy from seminary, not only did he gain a grass roots perspective on the Catholic youth of America, but also discerned he was called to marriage. He and his wife, Teresa, just celebrated their second wedding anniversary and were blessed with a son in 2012, Joseph. They are expecting their second child this summer.
Jon is an up and coming star on the international speaking circuit and you can find more information about Jon at www.jdleonetti.com.
The most common question asked about Dowling Catholic Hall of Famer Mark Amadeo is why. Why do we call him Dowling Catholic Hall of Famer? Mark has been announcing games at Dowling Catholic High School since he was a student at Dowling! For his 30+ years of dedicated broadcasting service, Mark was inducted in the Dowling Hall of Fame in 2010. Mark’s son, Alex attends Grand View College; Mark and his wife, Mary, have a kindergarten daughter, Gracie, who attends Holy Trinity Catholic School.
If Jon is the up and coming star, Jeanne must be the setting sun of the bunch. As the senior member of the Morning Show team, she is the youngest to the broadcast world. Even though she is known for Jeanne Wells Weather, her true love of the show is the opportunity to pray with and for our family of listeners. Her own family is all grown up; son, Evan and Mandy have two beautiful girls, Katelyn and Ryann. Daughter, Chelsea and Andy, added grandson, Drew, in November 2013 and are expecting their second this summer.
The mission of Iowa Catholic Radio is to ‘teach, defend and evangelize the Catholic faith’. Jon, Mark and Jeanne are blessed to be a daily witness for their faith, and pray that their voice can help someone find their voice in giving praise and thanksgiving to God.
