Manassas, VA – The 700 Club will receive the prestigious NRB Best Television Talk Show Award February 21st at the NRB 2012 Convention & Exposition.
“Because of the ministry taking place through The 700 Club, lives are being transformed,” said NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright. “On average, 11,000 people call in to CBN’s prayer counseling center each day, and more than 2.8 million people have called to pray for salvation since they opened the prayer line in 1963.”
The 700 Club is a live television program that airs weekdays before a studio audience from The Christian Broadcasting Network's (CBN’s) broadcast facilities in Virginia Beach, VA. On the air continuously since 1966, it is one of the longest-running programs in broadcast history. Hosted by Pat Robertson, The 700 Club is a mix of news and commentary, interviews, feature stories, and Christian ministry.
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.
