The 700 Club
A religious-themed newsmagazine, one of TV's longest-running programs. On the air since 1966, it launched nationally in '72, before becoming the flagship of the Christian Broadcast Network in 1977. It mixes news---from a religious perspective---with inspirational interviews with celebrities, along with Bible readings and entertainment. Conservative icon (and 1988 presidential candidate) Pat Robertson founded the hugely popular program from a 1963 fund-raising pledge effort on UHF TV in Virginia.
