Under Michael's direction, The Remnant has also expanded its outreach through Remnant TV, a platform that produces video commentary and event coverage. Hosted by Michael, Remnant TV addresses current issues within the Church, providing a traditional perspective on contemporary ecclesiastical and societal developments. This multimedia approach has enhanced The Remnant's ability to engage with a broader audience, particularly younger Catholics who consume news and commentary through digital channels.
