THE CATHOLIC GUY SHOW
5pm–7pm ET Monday – Friday
Lino Rulli is described by his friends as “The Catholic Guy” because that is exactly what he is… an everyday Catholic guy with a fresh, fun, and often off-beat take on living out the faith in the world today. Join Lino for a look at the world unlike any you’ve heard before.
For seven years, Lino broadcast from SiriusXM’s studios in the heart of New York City. Since 2013, Lino’s been “on the road” traveling the world.
Lino has covered every major moment of Pope Francis’ pontificate in person: From the night of his election, World Youth Day in Brazil, the Canonizations of John Paul II and John XXIII, the Pastoral Visit to the Holy Land, and the Pastoral Visit to South Korea. The Catholic Guy is the first American program ever allowed to do a week of programming from Vatican Radio, and have done so on seven different occasions.
Lino has broadcast from seminaries and convents across the country; The Seven Deadly Sins Suite in Las Vegas; with American troops stationed in German; from New Orleans during Mardi Gras; and even from his own New York City apartment.
September 29 has officially been declared Lino Rulli Day by the mayors of St. Paul and Minneapolis, MN.
