TV host, religious broadcaster, educator, humanitarian, and one-time presidential candidate, Pat Robertson passed away this morning at the age of 93.
Robertson, who is well known for offering prayer and political commentary at the helm of The 700 Club and founding the Christian Broadcasting Network in 1960, died at his home in Virginia Beach early this morning.
His legacy will carry on as he influenced intersecting interests and industries that have broken barriers for countless Christian leaders.
In Lexington, Virginia on March 22, 1930, Marion "Pat" Gordon Robertson was born. The nickname was given to him by his older brother, and would forever stick with him.
Robertson accomplished many feats in his life: graduated from Yale, created a broadcasting network, hosted a tv show, ran for President in 1988, and impacted the lives of thousands of people in over 150 countries and in more than 100 different languages.
Just over a year ago, Pat's wife of nearly 70 years, Dede Robertson passed away at 94. Now, the two will be reunited in the Kingdom of God.
In October 2021, Robertson announced that he would be stepping away from the spotlight as a daily host for The 700 Club, but he still made frequent appearances on the show.
Despite his declining health and losing the love of his life in April 2022, Robertson’s faith, obedience, and love for God never wavered.
