Meet the Reverend Michael Manning, 69. He’s the San Bernardino priest who has been selected by the Vatican to host the first-ever Vatican-affiliated iPhone app show.
Host of a longtime show on Trinity Broadcasting Network, rev. Manning will deliver daily inspirational video messages via the app, which should ship in early April.
Most of the Observatory Foundation shows will be filmed in the San Bernardino studios of Wordnet Productions, a Catholic television ministry that Manning founded. Others will be filmed in Rome and other locations, said Robert Thorne, CEO of The Robert Thorne Co., a Beverly Hills firm that co-manages global licensing and media for the foundation.
