VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – CBN News announces today that its Chief Political Correspondent, David Brody, will sit down with President Donald J. Trump for an interview, Friday, Jan. 27. Interview clips will be available to the press by 2 P.M. EST on Friday, upon request. Please request the clips by emailing mediainquiries@thekcompany.co.

EST on Freeform.  The interview will also be aired on Monday during The 700 Club on its local affiliate network at 9 A.M. EST. and on Freeform at 10 A.M and 11 P.M EST.

David Brody, a veteran award-winning journalist, has previously interviewed Mr. Trump more than a dozen times, going back to 2011, including 9 times during the 2016 Presidential campaign.

Friday’s interview will be CBN News’ first interview with President Trump. CBN is also proud to have the privilege of conducting the first sit down interview with the president among all faith news outlets in the United States.

The interview comes a few days after White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer commended CBN News for highlighting issues often overlooked by other media outlets.

“There are issues that sometimes the mainstream media does not capture. And it’s important for those issues to get as much prominence as some of the mainstream ones,” said White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer in an interview on Tuesday, Jan. 24.

“Maybe by hearing from the Christian Broadcasting Network, we [will] hear about an issue that otherwise would get drowned out,” Spicer added. Of CBN, he also said, “They have a magnificent audience.”

Last year, the Christian Broadcasting Network celebrated 32 years of CBN News coverage of the Republican National Convention (RNC), making the network the largest faith media presence covering the convention.

The network has been frontrunner in faith-based news coverage, often featuring exclusive interviews with presidential candidates and nominees. Last July, CBN Founder and Chairman Pat Robertson conducted a one-on-one interview with now President Trump days before his presidential nomination by the RNC was announced.

Again, advanced clips of the interview will be made available to the media by 2pm on Friday, January 27, 2016, courtesy of CBN News. Please request the clips by emailing mediainquiries@thekcompany.co.
