BULLETIN: Evangelical Leader Pat Robertson has Died

Pat Robertson, the religious broadcaster who turned a tiny station into the global Christian Broadcasting Network, tried a run for president and helped make religion central to Republican Party politics in America, has died. He was 93.

“With great sadness, we announce that Dr. M.G. “Pat” Robertson has gone home to be with his Lord and Savior today, June 8, 2023,” CBN News said in a statement.

Robertson founded the hugely popular “The 700 Club,” a daily talk show featuring celebrities and newsmakers talking about their faith in Christ.

“Pat was one of the most brilliant broadcasters of our time,” said Todd Starnes, a radio host and best-selling author. “I had the honor of being interviewed by Pat a number of times over the years and those segments were always memorable.”

Perhaps best known for offering prayer and political commentary at the helm of The 700 Club, the flagship program of his media ministry, Robertson’s rise to prominence is rooted in what he called a vision from God to create The Christian Broadcasting Network, which he founded in 1960. A prolific innovator, he also started a Christian university, a legal advocacy group, and an international NGO specializing in disaster relief.

Even while promoting a worldview that believes in the inerrancy of the Bible, both his approach to business and his on-air persona were considered unorthodox by some – if not ahead of his time. Today, his influence and legacy crisscross interests and industries that have broken barriers for countless Christian leaders and laypeople.
