TruNews was launched by Rick Wiles in Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX. The first broadcast was on May 24, 1999. The original name was America’s Hope. The message was simple: Jesus Christ is America’s only hope. As Rick honed his skills as a “citizen reporter”, the radio program quickly became known for its coverage of important news not heard on mainstream news channels – and for Rick’s in-depth interviews with important newsmakers. The program was briefly titled American Freedom News. In time, it became obvious that Rick Wiles was the best source available for true news. The program’s name was changed to TruNews in 2004. The rest is history. Today, people around the world faithfully tune in to TruNews every weeknight for news, information, and inspiration that they can’t find anywhere else.
