New Son Rise Morning Show Cohost Debuts Today
Jacob Popcak recently graduated from the Franciscan University of Steubenville (FUS) with an MA in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. A nationally and internationally known speaker on Theology of the Body-related topics, he’s no stranger to radio: Son of Dr. Greg and Lisa Popcak, who have been hosting Catholic radio programs since 2001, Jacob has grown up assisting his counsellor parents with their radio apostolate.
In addition to his work as a speaker and a counsellor, Popcak designed hundreds of audio, video, and graphic elements for promotions and events as a “psychoeducational resource specialist” at FUS’s Patoral Solutions Institute, where he also devloped support resources for counseling and self-help programs; and worked as an audio and video editor at the college’s Aardvark Production studios.
Jacob joins Anna Mitchell today, the Solemnity of the Assumption.
“Jacob is an impressive young man in his own right,” says Mitchell. “He just finished his Masters at Franciscan but has already been speaking around the world! I’m so pumped to finally have a new partner in crime.”
The Son Rise Morning Show airs from 6 – 9 am Monday through Friday on Sacred Heart Radio and can be heard online at the station’s website, or smartphones using the SRMS app.
