"The 700 Club" is a Christian talk show that features news and commentary, interviews with special guests and music. It also offers testimonials and prayer requests.
The idea for the "The 700 Club" originated in 1963 when Pat Robertson held a telethon asking for 700 callers to pledge $10 a month to cover the expenses for his Christian Broadcasting Network. It was a success, and more telethons followed. In 1966, Robertson developed a daily program focused on prayer and ministry. "The 700 Club" evolved to cover major news events and investigative reporting, but the show always held true to its Christian background.
