WASHINGTON – Legendary martial-arts champion, action star, humanitarian and political commentator Chuck Norris has reaffirmed his longstanding commitment to WND by entering into an exclusive publication arrangement for his popular weekly "Cultural Warrior" column, beginning the week of Feb. 14.
"WND has always been an important environment for expressing my social and political views," Norris said of the announcement. "Joseph Farah was first to give me the opportunity to become a weekly columnist, and exposure on his prestigious site as well as his encouragement helped establish me in what was a new role for me."

"This was Chuck Norris’ idea and decision all the way," said Joseph Farah, the founder of WND. "Of course, from my perspective, I welcomed the decision because of the extra value it brings to WND. I think it's fair to say that WND and Chuck Norris have a special relationship."
Chuck Norris' "Culture Warrior" column first appeared on WND as an exclusive feature in the fall of 2006. In 2008, the international film and television star and martial arts legend entered into a syndication arrangement with Creators Syndicate expanding to newspapers and other outlets throughout the U.S. At the time, he became the fifth exclusive WND columnist to be launched into national newspaper syndication.
While Norris is returning to his exclusive role with WND, his popular weekly health and fitness column, "C-Force," will continue to be distributed by Creators Syndicate.
