He hosts the nationally syndicated Catholic talk show Kresta in the Afternoon heard on over 400 stations and Sirius Radio weekdays from 4 to 6 p.m. Eastern Time. Al’s life and spiritual journey took on a new dimension in February 2003 when he lost his left leg to a virulent infection often referred to as the flesh-eating bacteria. His extended recovery and eventual return to broadcasting have given him new insights into the realities of suffering and hope. Al is the author of the best-selling book Dangers to the Faith: Recognizing Catholicism’s 21st Century Opponents and several others.
