The Nashville Network Returns

Monday, 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 Chattanooga's Luken Communications and Jim Owens Entertainment in Las Vegas at the 2012 NAB Show to announce the return of The Nashville Network.  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 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 more.

The Nashville Network is a sister network to Luken Communications’ Retro Television (RTV), My Family TV, TUFF TV, PBJ, MyCarTV and Frost Great Outdoors.  Luken Communications offers diverse, family friendly programming on its networks reaching approximately 80 percent of all U.S. households via a blend of over-the-air, cable and satellite television.

The Nashville Network is a registered trademark of Jim Owens Entertainment, Inc., a producer of country music programming including classic country shows and specials featuring the genre's legends, and award-winning current broadcast hits - the nationally syndicated country news and entertainment show Crook & Chase and the weekly radio staple The Crook & Chase Countdown.
