Mission Network News was started in 1991 by World Concern, a ministry of Christa Ministries. The radio network started on the air on more than 200 Christian radio stations primarily in the United States. Hosted by Peter Brooks, MNN grew to more than 750 radio outlets around the world. It was produced by The Raymond Group or TRG until 1995 when Cornerstone University acquired the broadcast ministry.
