ABC Anchor Dan Abrams Launches Sermon Streaming Service
ABC News’ chief legal correspondent Dan Abrams is launching a new streaming service which will live stream Christian sermons.
According to a report from an online outlet called The Hill, Ambo TV will be launching in November and its goal is to broadcast “Christian sermons with an in-studio discussion.”
According to a statement from Abram’s new company Mediaite, Ambo TV, which also means Pulpit TV, is expected to feature continuous and simultaneous sermons on Saturdays and Sundays, along with added commentary throughout the day.
CBN News reports that Ambo TV has already secured partnerships with Victory Church in Tulsa and the multi-site Fresh Light Church, in Montana who will be streaming their sermons on Ambo TV.
“The network will be hosted out of the newly built Abrams Media studios in Herald Square in New York City, and viewers will be able to engage with other viewers in a live-chat feature through the programs,” the company’s statement reads.
Yale Divinity School graduate Brooke Girley is set to lead the streaming network which she described as an “inspirational network for younger Christians” that is “long overdue.”
“Ambo TV will allow viewers to watch compelling sermons, in real time, from pastors of my generation and discuss them with other viewers from around the world,” she said. “This is the type of network many of us have been waiting for, and I’m thrilled to be a part of creating it.”
Abrams’ long-term goal is for Ambo TV to expand broadcast past the weekend and to have sermons play throughout the week.
