Radio Santisimo Sacramento (1240 AM), Northern California's first Spanish-language Catholic station, was established by Bishop Jaime Soto and a fiduciary board of laypeople from various parishes to serve the growing number of Spanish-speaking people in the 20 counties of the Diocese of Sacramento. The radio station's studio is located at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish in Sacramento.
On Oct. 7, 2011, Radio Santisimo Sacramento began broadcasting. It boasts an audience of more than 15,000 listeners per hour, a robust and indispensable volunteer corps, extensive local programming, The Bishop's Hour with Bishop Soto, and Spanish-language programming from the Eternal Word Television Network. The 1240 AM signal covers Sacramento County and major surrounding cities.
In 2013, thanks to listeners' prayers and financial support, a new repeater antenna was acquired in the Oroville area, so that Radio Santisimo Sacramento can also be heard on 1340 AM in Chico, Orland, Oroville, Yuba City, Grass Valley, Paradise and Willows.
