With more than 30 years in television, radio and newspaper journalism, Teresa Tomeo is uniquely qualified to cover news throughout the Catholic community. Her weekday morning program, Catholic Connection, is produced by Ave Maria Radio in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and is now heard on more than 200 Catholic stations nationwide through the EWTN Global Catholic Radio Network. The program is also carried on Sirius Satellite Radio. It discusses social issues and media events, and features live interviews with community leaders and newsmakers. She also co-hosts The Catholic View for Women, a weekly EWTN series featuring news and analysis for women from a Catholic perspective.
Tomeo has been honored to be named an official Vatican conference speaker and conference delegate. In 2008, she was one of a select group of international delegates invited to the Vatican Women’s Congress in Rome, marking the 20th anniversary of St. John Paul II’s letter, On the Dignity and Vocation of Women (Mulieris Dignitatem). In September 2013, she spoke at the Vatican conference entitled, “The Rights of the Family and the Challenges of the Contemporary World” on the topic, “The Way Family is Perceived in Society.”
As a speaker, Tomeo travels throughout North America, addressing media awareness and activism, as well as sharing her reversion to the Catholic Church. She also leads various retreats and pilgrimages each year to destinations around the world, including Italy and the Holy Land.
Tomeo has authored several books. Her book “Extreme Makeover: Women Transformed by Christ, Not Conformed to the Culture” was released in October of 2011 from Ignatius Press and has been named “required reading” by Dr. Laura Schlessinger. A sought-after media personality, she’s appeared on many national television programs and Dr. James Dobson’s Family Talk Radio, discussing issues of faith, media awareness, pro-life and the Catholic Church’s teachings. She and her husband speak about marriage around the world based on their co-authored book, “Intimate Graces.”
