Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy to CNN's Brian Stelter: we're bigger than the core audience of Fox News

CNN's Brian Stelter spoke with Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy about his plans to expand his conservative website into television.

Ruddy described his new venture to CNN:

RUDDY: We have 5 million opt-in email subscribers. That's bigger, I believe, than the core audience of FOX news, which is 3-4 million on cable. So online, we're already I think a significant power house, and I think this is just the next step for us...The boomer market which we're focusing on has 80 million Americans. There's really not much on cable, servicing them. The other thing is I think everybody is focused on cable, but it's much broader now than cable; The Internet, over the top devices, smart phones. There's 100 million smart phone users. And they can all go to newsmax now, where they won't be able to go to FOX news. So I think the future is um, rapidly developing and we're going to be there.
