Editor’s Note: Black Christian News Network is being put up for sale for $3.7 million. We are looking for a conservative media organization to take over the website — one that will preserve its Gospel focus, its targeting of the African-American Community, and its conservative viewpoint. As we pursue this venture, we are releasing a seven-part “Story of BCNN1” series documenting how the website got started and how it has grown over the years. This page will be updated as new parts of the series are added. (As you may know, BCNN1 is part of GLM Omnimedia Group LLC, a conglomeration of websites and Christian service companies that is also being offered for sale. If BCNN1 is bought along with the rest of the properties in GLM Omnimedia Group LLC, our target sale price is $4.7 million.
