TBN Expands News Reporting Operations

TBN announces today the hiring of Erick Stakelbeck, former director of Christians United for Israel’s Watchman Project and host of “The Watchman” program. Stakelbeck’s hiring is part of the network’s effort to expand their news division and provide newsworthy content to viewers around the world. Stakelbeck’s first two specials, “Israel Under Fire” and “The Rise of Cancel Culture” will air this month.

“After five incredible years of working alongside TBN on ‘The Watchman’ show and seeing the incredible growth of the network and the vision of Matt and Laurie firsthand, I knew it was time to join the TBN family, full-time,” said Stakelbeck. “With America and the world experiencing unprecedented challenges, TBN is uniquely positioned to provide news programming from a Biblical perspective for tens of millions of Americans who are hungry for honest and informative content that helps make sense of the challenging times in which we are living. I’m honored to help lead the charge on this exciting new venture.”

In Stakelbeck’s first TBN special “Israel Under Fire” airing today, May 19 at 9 p.m. ET, he’ll give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the current crisis unfolding in the Middle East as Israel defends itself from new terror threats. U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, New York Times bestselling author Joel Rosenberg and three former Israeli Ambassadors to the U.S., join Stakelbeck to give their unique perspectives on the geopolitical situation.

On Tuesday, May 25 at 8 p.m. ET, Stakelbeck examines modern-day censorship in his new special “The Rise of Cancel Culture.” Joined by Dr. Ben Carson, Dennis Prager, Phil Robertson and Kevin & Sam Sorbo, Stakelbeck breaks down how this new risk against free speech threatens Christians and how believers should be preparing themselves for growing secular hostility to people of faith.
