CUFI’s The Watchman to Begin Airing on Fox Business Network

America’s largest pro-Israel organization joins forces with America’s number one name in cable news

SAN ANTONIO – On Sunday, Christians United for Israel’s (CUFI) The Watchman television program will begin airing on the Fox Business Network (FBN) at 12:30 am eastern. The program, which already airs in primetime on the Trinity Broadcasting Network, is a cutting-edge weekly newsmagazine delivering the inside story on what’s happening in Israel and the Middle East and why it matters to every American.

“We are thrilled to have The Watchman brought to an entirely new audience via the Fox Business Network. CUFI’s message of support for Israel and opposition to anti-Semitism is vital to today’s discourse in churches and communities across the country,” said CUFI founder and Chairman Pastor John Hagee.

In the first program airing on FBN, Director of CUFI’s Watchman Project Erick Stakelbeck joins the Kurdish Peshmerga on the Iran-Iraq border – a place where few American civilians have set foot since the 1979 Iranian Revolution – to get an inside look at the threat posed by Iran’s tyrannical regime.

“Pastor Hagee’s vision for an organization that can bring a Biblically based pro-Israel message to households across the country has become a reality, and I believe this latest expansion into mainstream news programing will only enhance our ability to ensure the truth about Israel is available to any who are willing to hear it,” Stakelbeck said.

The Watchman spotlights the rising security threats facing Israel and America, providing on-the-ground reporting from Israel and Washington D.C. The program regularly features expert commentary and interviews with top U.S. and Israeli officials and profiles famous Biblical and historical sites in the Middle East while explaining their modern relevance.

With more than 7 million members, Christians United for Israel is the largest pro-Israel organization in the United States and one of the leading Christian grassroots movements in the world. CUFI spans all fifty states and reaches millions with its educational message.
