BBN was founded in 1971 by Lowell Davey, signing on for its first broadcast via WYFI in Norfolk, Virginia. BBN operates as a non-profit, funding itself through listener donations rather than airing commercials.

Examples of BBN programming include "BBN Worship Hour," "Bible Study Time" and "News and Good News," up-to-date news bulletins that include a weekly Bible verse for listeners to learn.

BBN has 30 full-power and more than 100 low-power stations in 29 states in the United States, in addition to stations in 13 other countries across North America and South America. Worldwide streaming is also available online and through BBN's mobile apps in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese and Korean, as well as Japanese, German and Russian. BBN estimates that between its radio stations and online streaming platform, it reaches an audience of over 200 million listeners.

In addition to its broadcasts, BBN has a monthly publication called "The Voice," which aims to provide listeners both with spiritual content and information regarding BBN's ongoing operations.
