This is very cool as like all Viacom owned cable Networks (TV Land, Nick at Nite, etc.), CMT is a disgrace and I don’t have GAC (Great American Country).
More than likely, TNN will air on an over the air broadcast digital subchannel.
THE NASHVILLE NETWORK (TNN) will resume Country music and lifestyle programming as a digital broadcast network in late SUMMER 2012.
THE CROOK & CHASE COUNTDOWN hosts LORIANNE CROOK and CHARLIE COOK, along with JIM OWENS ENTERTAINMENT and LUKEN COMMUNICATIONS made the announcement at the 2012 NAB SHOW in LAS VEGAS.
TNN, originally launched in 1983 as a cable network featuring Country music programming and was sold in 2000 and subsequently changed its name and programming to target a different demographic. The network will return to broadcast television through exclusive network affiliates. Programming will combine digitally restored classic content pulled from the vaults in NASHVILLE with contemporary shows. The lineup will include shows like MEMORIES OF THE GRAND OLE OPRY, CROOK & CHASE, CELEBRITY KITCHEN, THE COUNTRY VIBE, MUSIC CITY TONIGHT, LARRY’S COUNTRY DINER and more.
TNN is a sister network to LUKEN COMMUNICATIONS’ RETRO TELEVISION (RTV), MY FAMILY TV, TUFF TV, PBJ, MYCARTV and FROST GREAT OUTDOORS.
