The Christian Broadcast Network is launching a new, live social media-driven political talk show.
It’s entitled “Faith Nation” and will debut on Facebook Live Wednesday, July 19 at 12:30 p.m. ET and be broadcast every Wednesday thereafter.
Featuring CBN’s David Brody and Jenna Browder, “Faith Nation” will focus on today’s political topics that are significant to Christians, featuring significant audience engagement as viewers will have the opportunity to comment in real time during the live broadcast.
Each weekly show will feature “The District,” with David Brody interviewing leading political figures and news makers in Washington, D.C.
It will also include regular segments from CBN News’ Amber Strong and Ben Kennedy discussing today’s top news stories and their significance to the faith community, man-on-the street interviews with CBN’s Juan Garcia, and additional relevant news content from other CBN News reporters, including Caitlin Burke, Abigail Robertson and Jennifer Wishon.
“There are millions of Christians in America whose values are not being echoed by much of the media. CBN’s ‘Faith Nation’ will provide these viewers with a platform to be informed about important stories that are relevant to them, as well as to give them a real voice in the national discussion of those issues,” said Gordon Robertson, CEO of the Christian Broadcasting Network.
“Faith Nation is designed to tackle two topics we are told to not bring up at the dinner table: faith and politics,” said Dana Ritter, CBN News Washington D.C. bureau chief.
“The show concept was hatched out of the idea that people still want to talk about it but are more comfortable discussing those issues on social media,” she explained. “We see the need to engage the audience where they already are and Facebook allows us to do that while also giving the audience a voice.”
