Robertson was the host of Club 700 from 1966 to 2021, except for a sabbatical year from 1987 to 1988, when he ran unsuccessfully for the presidency. Shortly after Robertson created CBN in 1960, Club 700 became its flagship program (which still airs today), although it was widely criticized for its conservative approach to political commentary and daily current affairs. Robertson announced his departure from the daily series on October 1, 2021, and his son Gordon took over as full-time host.

Robertson remained president of CBN until his death. Following his retirement from Club 700he also concentrated on teaching at Regent University, a private Christian institution founded by Robertson in 1977. He also served as chancellor of the university.

He is survived by his four children – Tim, Elizabeth, Gordon and Ann – as well as 14 grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren. Dede Robertson, his wife of nearly 70 years, died in 2022.
