Christian TV network enters world of 24-hour news

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) — A Christian TV network is entering the crowded world of 24-hour news broadcasting at a time when the mainstream news media is under increasing attack by President Donald Trump and some of his supporters, many of them evangelicals.

Gordon Robertson is CEO of The Christian Broadcasting Network. He is also a son of evangelist Pat Robertson.

Gordon Robertson told The Associated Press in an interview last week that the channel will air on local television stations in 15 U.S. cities. He says it will provide a Christian perspective that other channels lack.

Robertson says he wants the channel to bring people together. It is making its debut in an increasingly fractured media landscape and divided nation.
