Pat Robertson Biography & Wiki 2017

Marion Gordon “Pat” Robertson was born on 22nd March 1930, in Lexington, Virginia, into a family with connections in politics. He is an American businessman, a media mogul and a former minister of the USA, who became famous as a televangelist. He is the chairman of the Christian Broadcasting Network, an American religious television network and production company. Besides all these, Pat Robertson is a best-selling author and also hosts his own television program, “The 700 Club”.

So just how rich is Pat Robertson? In 2015, his net worth has been estimated to be more than $120 million. Most of his money has been made from business and television, about which media has speculated over the years, accusing the televangelist of scams, illegal financial schemes, and bad use of tax-exempt income, as Robertson has founded several non-profit organizations besides his businesses. Pat Robertson started the Christian Broadcasting Network in 1960, with a small radio in Portsmouth, and after 17 years in this area he bought his first cable TV channel, which soon became very popular thanks to his Christian television program. Over the years the channel changed name and owner several times (today is known as “ABC Family” and is owned by Disney), but it is considered that it has brought more than $500 million to its first owner. Pat Robertson owns an 11,000 square feet mansion built on top of a mountain in Virginia, a small hotel, a company based on a multi-level marketing scheme which sells vitamins, and a company which controls controversial diamond mines in Zaire.

Pat Robertson is the son of a Senator of the USA. He went to The McCallie School in Tennessee, and then he studied history at Washington and Lee University. In 1948, he joined the Marine Corps, spending most of his time in service doing office work in Japan. In 1955, he graduated from Yale Law School with a Law degree, and then in 1959 he completed a Masters degree at the New York Theological Seminary.

A year later he started building his empire, using mostly money from donations. After he became popular in the USA, he tried unsuccessfully to win a nomination for President of the United States for the Republicans. Pat Robertson is founder of several companies and non-profit organizations, such as The Christian Broadcasting Network (CBN) Inc., Regent University, American Centre for Law and Justice, International Family Entertainment Inc., The Flying Hospital, and Operation Blessing International Relief and Development Corporation. One of these companies, International Family Entertainment Inc., was sold in 1990 for $1.9 billion, a transaction which added a lot of money to Robertson’s net worth. At the end of the ‘90s Pat Robertson became involved in mining businesses, and media discovered he had owned a company which was doing unsafe gold mining operations in Liberia.

As a politician, Robertson was president of the Council for National Policy, and he used his influence by endorsing several Republican candidates. His movement, Christian Coalition (now called Christian Coalition of America) is ranked number seven on the list of the most powerful political organisations in the USA. The former televangelist is also known for his statements made during his television program “The 700 Club”, on a series of topics such as international politics, the US State Department, abortion, homosexuality, liberalism, and many other somewhat controversial subjects.
