Manassas, VA – The 700 Club will receive the NRB Best Television Talk Show Award during the February 27th Television Reception at the NRB Convention & Exposition.
“Nearly a million viewers every day watch The 700 Club, now seen in 95 percent of the television markets in the United States,” said NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright. “Over its 45-year run, it has become one of the most high-impact programs in the history of Christian broadcasting.”
The 700 Club is a live television program that airs weekdays before a studio audience from The Christian Broadcasting Network's (CBN) broadcast facilities in Virginia Beach, Virginia. On the air continuously since 1966, it is one of the longest-running programs in broadcast history. Hosted by Pat Robertson, Terry Meeuwsen, and Gordon Robertson, with news anchor Lee Webb, The 700 Club is a mix of news and commentary, interviews, feature stories, and Christian ministry.
The 700 Club is a news/magazine program that has the variety and pacing of a morning show with in-depth investigative reporting by the CBN News team. Whether reporting live from the scene of a terrorist attack or a natural disaster, CBN News brings coverage on major events affecting our nation. The Washington Bureau reports on news from the Capitol and correspondents report on events and trends that shape the world from Moscow to Jerusalem.
The NRB Best Television Talk Show Award is presented to a talk show that deals with important issues of the day; has guests who are engaging, authoritative and able to communicate effectively; engages the culture in a compelling way; demonstrates fidelity to the Word of God (including sound doctrine and Biblical teaching); and demonstrates an ability to embrace other ministry organizations in an effort to expand a Christ-centered influence in the culture.
