Televangelist Pat Robertson is stepping down as host of The 700 Club after filling that role for 54 years, the Christian Broadcasting Network announced Friday.
Robertson also announced his departure on Friday’s episode of the daily program, which aired in celebration of CBN’s 60-year anniversary.
His son Gordon, who currently serves as the network’s CEO and an occasional 700 Club co-host, will succeed Robertson as full-time host of the show.
Beginning in November, Robertson will return for a monthly interactive episode of The 700 Club in which he answers viewer emails, according to TheWrap.
