The LDS Church announced the availability starting today of the Mormon Channel, a new 24-hour, seven-day-a-week radio service that can be accessed on the Internet at http://radio.lds.org" Target="_BLANK">http://radio.lds.org or through HD radio affiliates.

Broadcasts originate at Temple Square in Salt Lake City, Chris Twitty, LDS director of digital media, said in a statement.

"We have access to all the resources of the church in creating program content," Twitty said. "Though it seems a daunting task to fill the air time, we have a wealth of information that will be of interest to listeners, much of it new and never before heard or seen."

Broadcasts include personal interviews with church leaders in the services' "Conversations" program. Deseret Book chief executive Sheri Dew interviews LDS apostle David A. Bednar and his wife, Susan, in the first episode.

The service also will broadcast "Music and the Spoken Word," the church's weekly broadcast featuring the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and a program called "Into the World," which will feature the lives of Mormons around the globe.
