Evangelist Offers Bakkers Job on Cable TV

May 24, 1987|Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio — An evangelist said Saturday that he has offered Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker jobs on a planned cable television show.

The Rev. Leroy Jenkins said he made an offer through intermediaries to pay $100,000 a year to Jim Bakker and $75,000 to Tammy Bakker to perform on a weekly show similar to the couple's former show on the PTL network.

Jenkins said his current call-in show and faith-healing services from his Healing Hill Cathedral in Delaware, Ohio, about 25 miles north of Columbus, are broadcast on about 20 radio stations.

However, Jenkins said he plans within a month to begin television shows sent by satellite to cable television systems that he said reach millions of subscribers.
