Three Angels Broadcasting Network, or 3ABN, is an American nonprofit television and radio network broadcasting Christian and health-oriented programming, based in West Frankfort, Illinois.[1] 3ABN is available throughout the United States, with an expanded international audience. It is an independent non-denominational ministry; however, it supports the mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.

In July 2017, 3ABN announced the sale of 60 low-powered television (LPTV) stations and 10 LPTV construction permits to Edge Spectrum.[2]

In October 2017, 3ABN announced the sale of 14 LPTV stations to HC2 Holdings.[3]


The focus of 3ABN's programming is a blend of family and social programs (including divorce recovery programs, marriage, and children and family issues), health and lifestyle (including drug and alcohol rehabilitation, exercise, healthy cooking (with an emphasis on dairy-free vegetarian, organic food), natural home remedies, stop smoking, and weight loss), gospel music, and a wide variety of Bible-based presentations (including Bible study, church history, seminars and events, and worship services).

3ABN's program lineups include both original (3ABN-produced) and third-party programs. 3ABN Proclaim!, 3ABN Latino, 3ABN Latino Radio, 3ABN Radio, 3ABN Radio Music, 3ABN Russia, 3ABN Russia Radio, 3ABN Français, 3ABN International which airing some programming produced by 3ABN Australia (and for 3ABN Australia Radio) 3ABN Kids Network (formerly SonBeam Channel) and 3ABN Dare to Dream Network each contain their own original programs not included on the main 3ABN television network, and Radio 74 leases audio subchannel space on 3ABN's digital stations. As of early 2009, 3ABN's main TV channel had 69% original programming; 3ABN Latino had 67% original programming; and 3ABN Russia had 100% original programming.[4]

The 3ABN International network has the same/similar lineup of programs as 3ABN's flagship network. 3ABN International carries "3ABN Now", the flagship program and some other programming produced by 3ABN Australia.

Not only 3ABN produced their programming at their World Headquarters in West Frankfort, Illinois, 3ABN also produces and carries their programming in their world branches at Three Angels Russian Evangelism Centre in Nizhny Novgorod in Russia and 3ABN Australia Production Centre in Morisset, New South Wales in Australia.
