47. Erick Stakelbeck
Erick Stakelbeck is the host of “The Watchman” program on TBN. He has spent nearly two decades covering the Middle East and national security issues in-depth: traveling to the region, interviewing world leaders and wanted terrorists, and highlighting the shared threats to America and Israel. From 2005 to 2015, Stakelbeck was a correspondent, host and terrorism analyst for CBN News. Stakelbeck is a regular commentator on leading national television and radio programs and a frequent guest on Fox News.
Stakelbeck regularly speaks to audiences around the country on Israel, terrorism and Middle East-related issues, including at events for Christians United for Israel (CUFI), the annual National Religious Broadcasters Convention (NRB), ACT for America, the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the Israel Allies Foundation (IAF), the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA), the Values Voter Summit and the Faith and Freedom Coalition, among others.
As CBN's Chris Mitchell, a close friend and former colleague of mine, often says, 'all roads lead to Jerusalem'. That was always how I felt, and covering the shared threats to Israel and America over the years only reinforced that belief.Erick Stakelbeck
