Phone interview?
If your interview is a phone-in, please call

515-223-1150, five minutes prior to your scheduled interview time.

Interview Tip:
If you had only three minutes to speak from your heart regarding the topic you're being interviewed about, what would you say? This is something for you to think about prior to your interview.

Promoting Your Interview

  • Use Facebook to promote the date and time your interview airs. Be sure to "like" Iowa Catholic Radio and tag us in your post.
  • Use Twitter to promote the date and time your interview airs. Be sure to mention @IACatholicRadio in your tweet.
  • Promote through your church's bulletin or pulpit announcements.
  • Post on your organization's website or calendar.
  • Send out an e-mail blast to your e-mail distribution list.

Preparing for Your Time on the Air

  • Preparation makes for the best interviews.
  • We want to be sure we get to the "heart" of your topic during the short time we have in the interview. If you're coming on the air to talk about a specific topic, event, organization or other specific subject, please provide us with a few talking points you would like to cover during your interview. E-mail talking points at least 2 days in advance to
  • The interview style on John Leonetti in the Morning is conversational and its purpose is to invite, inform and inspire. You are encouraged to speak to our listeners as if you were speaking to a friend or peer. For priests, think about how you would speak to a parishioner outside of Mass or a fallen-away Catholic or a non-Catholic at an airport or other public place.

Note for priests:
You may be asked to impart your priestly blessing on listeners at the end of the interview. If possible, tie the blessing into the discussion we've just had on the air as a bonus.
