The World Tomorrow (religion)

    (ABC weekly, 1950s;
     Syndicated 1967 - 1994;
     Syndicated 2004 - present)
     [This series was heard on radio from 1934 - 1994. The original title
     was "The Radio Church of God." It changed to "The World Tomorrow"
     following the 1939 World's Fair.
     The television broadcasts began in the 1950s as a weekly ABC series
     featuring Herbert W. Armstrong, founder of the "Church of God".
     His son, evangelist Garner Ted Armstrong was featured on the TV broadcasts
     from 1967 until he had a falling out with his father in 1978, and was
     "excommunicated" from the church. His father, Herbert W. Armstrong
     resumed making the presentations on TV from 1978 until his death in
     1986. Then others preached on a rotating basis on the program. 
     After he was forced to leave his father's church, Garner Ted Armstrong 
     founded what he named the "Intercontinental Church of God". He also 
     went on radio and television to preach his own message against much
     of traditional Christianity – or what he referred to as “churchianity”.
     In 2004, the trademarked name "Church of God" was purchased by The
     World Tomorrow Evangelistic Association. It not only has produced
     new TV episodes that are broadcast in several TV markets, but may
     re-broadcast some of the older episodes featuring Herbert W. Armstrong
     on both TV and radio.]
