After the death of its founder, Trinity Broadcasting Network is reportedly making changes to television programming.

Television programming at TBN is changing after the death of televangelist Paul Crouch Sr. The network has passed on leadership to Crouch's wife, Jan, who is making changes to the programs that run on the world's largest Christian television network.

Paul and Jan CrouchThose changes include removing prophetic teaching shows after the death of the ministry's founder.

The Christian Post reports that prophetic teaching programs have been removed from TBN programming, including End of the Age hosted by Irvin Baxter.

Statements released by the ministries cut from TBN note that Jan Crouch does not have a "strong interest in Bible prophecy."

In addition, singer Betty Jean Robinson and the Love Worth Finding program of the late Adrian Rogers have been removed from the television network.

Some speculate TBN is removing old programs to appeal to a younger audience.

The network could also be changing programming to include new shows or live programs. Others say Jan Crouch and her son Matt could be opposed to the belief in a pre-tribulation rapture.
