ABC Family is making the big change as the re-branded network Freeform this week, but is The 700 Club coming with them? Freeform chief Tom Ascheim says yes, according to Deadline.
The 700 Club has been broadcast on ABC Family since the network began several decades ago as an arm of Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network.
Ascheim announced that Robertson will definitely be a part of Freeform. When asked if The 700 Club will air forever, he said:
Forever is such a long time, but for the moment will continue as it is.”
What do you think? Do you watch The 700 Club?
did he get a Hong Kong, or Gitmo-like lease, 99 years, no matter who owns the network? good for him …should also mention that Freeform puts a disrespectful disclaimer before The 700 Club airs, instructing its viewers that they in no way endorse Robertson’s views, and encouraging them to seek the channel on other platforms for the next hour
Robertson wouldn’t miss an opportunity to rip off the gullible, er, ask for donations from viewers.
