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.

The program commenced in 1966 and is hosted by Pat Robertson, Terry Meeuwsen, Lisa Ryan, Gordon Robertson, and Kristi Watts, with news anchor Lee Webb. "The 700 Club is a mix of news and commentary, interviews, feature stories, and Christian ministry," it states on its website. [1]

"Seen in 95 percent of the television markets across the United States, the program is carried on ABC Family Channel cable network, FamilyNet, Trinity Broadcasting Network, and numerous U.S. television stations and is seen daily by approximately one million homes. CBN WorldReach broadcasts, which include the international edition of The 700 Club, have been translated into more than 70 foreign languages, can be seen in more than 200 countries, and are accesible throughout the year by more than 1.5 billion people around the world," it states on its website.

"The 700 Club television program is an outgrowth of a 1963 telethon in which founder Pat Robertson asked 700 viewers to join the "700 Club" by pledging $10 a month, money needed to meet CBN's monthly budget. After a very successful "700 Club" telethon in 1966, Robertson decided to add to the end of his station's broadcast day a program with a format of prayer and ministry coupled with telephone response. He named it The 700 Club, hoping to build a nationwide audience based on this earlier success. Seen in 95 percent of the television markets across the United States, The 700 Club now airs in nearly 90 million homes and averages about one million viewers on a daily basis," it states on its website.
