3ABN, or Three Angels Broadcasting Network, is a non-denominational Christian-based radio and television network based in southern Illinois. It calls itself the "Mending Broken People Network," because its programming is mainly focused on providing advice for viewers going through a personal crisis, such as substance abuse or domestic issues.
3ABN was launched in November 1986 by Dan Shelton, who created the network as a response to religious programming at the time that he felt was misrepresenting Christian doctrine. In addition to its flagship station, 3ABN, Three Angels Broadcasting Network runs several radio and TV network channels with specialized programming, including 3ABN Radio, Dare to Dream, 3ABN Proclaim and 3ABN Kids Network. 3ABN also runs several foreign language networks, including 3ABN Latino, 3ABN Russia and 3ABN Français.
