Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network Launches 24-Hour News Net

Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) has launched CBN News Channel, a 24-hour Christian news network. The channel is available in 15 markets, airing on KHIZ Los Angeles, WUEO Atlanta, WUDL Detroit, KBGU St. Louis and WKUW Nashville, along with stations in Indianapolis, Kansas City, Milwaukee, Oklahoma City, Norfolk, Memphis, Wichita, Springfield, MO, Shreveport and Lubbock, Texas.

CBN News Channel features a mix of live and breaking news coverage from the network’s Washington D.C. bureau, its Virginia Beach headquarters and other locations.

Pat Robertson founded Christian Broadcasting Network in 1960. The network describes itself as “a global multimedia organization focusing on evangelism and humanitarian aid.”

“Viewers are hungry for news today and also to understand how current events, both here and abroad, affect them,” said Robertson. “With news bureaus and correspondents in dozens of countries and humanitarian aid efforts going on around the world, CBN News Channel is on the ground in the world’s hot zones and uniquely positioned to deliver important stories in emerging formats that will engage new audiences.”

Rob Allman is VP and news director of CBN.

“In this contentious news culture today, viewers are concerned not only about issues that are important to them, such as religious liberty, Supreme Court judges, Israel and our government leaders, they are also increasingly concerned with how the news is being reported by major media outlets,” he said. “CBN News will cover major stories where faith is relevant; we will expose our viewers to important stories they will not see in the major media, and our professional journalists will conduct respectful interviews with newsmakers on all sides of the political spectrum.”

Michael Malone, senior content producer at B+C/Multichannel News, covers network programming, including entertainment, news and sports on broadcast, cable and streaming; and local broadcast television. He hosts the podcasts Busted Pilot, about what’s new in television, and Series Business, a chat with the creator of a new program, and writes the column “The Watchman.” He joined B+C in 2005. His journalism has also appeared in The New York Times, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Playboy and New York magazine.
