It’s not often that God’s richest blessings are offered in a network news release. Then again this is the Christian Broadcasting Network.
Longtime news anchor Lee Webb is leaving at the end of the month. Gordon Robertson, CBN’s CEO, announced the news today. Webb is leaving CBN to join Dr. R.C. Sproul and his organization, Ligonier Ministries in Sanford, Fla., where he has accepted the post of Vice President of Broadcasting. Replacing him is John Jessup, who has worked with CBN since 2003, where he has reported on Capitol Hill from the Washington, D.C. Bureau and filed stories for the 700 Club. With his promotion, the news segment will now be anchored live from Washington.
CBN’s Founder and Chairman, Pat Robertson, said in a release, “Lee Webb has brought grace and professionalism to every aspect of our news. He is a consummate professional, a dedicated Christian and a wonderful family man. We wish him God’s richest blessings in his new place of service.”
