The loves and fears of Fr Karm

Fears falsity, loves being a religious and reverberates with butterflies. These were some of the answers given to Newsbook.com.mt by Fr Karm Debattista MSSP who daily presents Handbook on 103.

Fr Karm has been producing and presenting radio programmes on RTK for many years. He describes his relationship with the station as a “love/hate relationship story, you give and take, hurt and heal.” His transition to 103 was a natural transition.

Handbook, which Fr Karm presents daily discusses the Gospel readings. It is broadcast just after noon.
