Las Vegas, NV and Chattanooga, TN (PRWEB) April 16, 2012
Country music talk show hosts Lorianne Crook and Charlie Chase of the long running hit radio show The Crook & Chase Countdown and TV series Crook & Chase, will join Luken Communications and Jim Owens Entertainment in Las Vegas at the 2012 NAB Show to announce the return of The Nashville Network. The legendary powerhouse and America’s country home, TNN, will resume its country music and lifestyle programming as a digital broadcast network in late summer 2012.
TNN, originally launched in 1983 as a cable network featuring country music programming, 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 of today, creating an experience that will bring delight to country music lovers of every generation. The exciting new 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 much more!
The hosts of Crook & Chase, which will be featured on The Nashville Network, will be on site for events April 17-18. Visit Luken Communications’ booth SU13903G in the NAB Content Market, located in the Las Vegas Convention Center South Hall Upper Level, for an opportunity to meet the stars of Crook & Chase and learn more about TNN. Representatives will be available to negotiate affiliation agreements.
