TNN To Air Rick & Bubba Morning Show
September 19, 2012 at 5:01 PM (PT)
SYNDICATED SOLUTIONS, INC. has aligned with TNN TV to begin simulcasting the THE RICK & BUBBA SHOW, on the channel, starting THURSDAY, NOV. 1st. The NASHVILLE NETWORK will broadcast THE RICK & BUBBA SHOW live weekdays 6-11a ET and SATURDAYS 6-8a ET. Additionally, they’ll air a one-hour "best-of" condensed version of the show each weekday 7-8p ET, compiled from the morning broadcast earlier in the day.
THE RICK & BUBBA SHOW is syndicated to over 60+ terrestrial radio affiliates, as well as via XM Radio Channel 166, UStream.TV, and its subscription-based Xtreme Club. The program is also broadcast as a one-hour daily TV show on several regional TV stations.
"We’ve been seeking to marry THE RICK & BUBBA SHOW with a national TV network for several years," SSI Pres. BOB CAREY said. "Now since the relationship with TURNER SOUTH ended, but finding the right match has also been equally as important. THE NASHVILLE NETWORK is a respected and recognized brand and their demographics and values match-up well with the successes RICK & BUBBA deliver. As TNN relaunches across AMERICA on NOVEMBER 1st, having RICK BURGESS and BILL "BUBBA" BUSSEY prominently positioned as star quarterbacks for the network in morning drive will unquestionably add an exclamation point to TNN, and continue our ambitions to expand THE RICK & BUBBA SHOW brand to new delivery vehicles and platforms that further increases our strong successes for sponsors and others associated with the show."
"TNN proudly welcomes THE RICK & BUBBA SHOW to AMERICA’s Country Home," LUKEN COMMUNICATIONS/TNN VP MATT WINN added. "Having a live morning talk show is a key component to TNN’s daily schedule. Our viewers will enjoy the entertaining and informative discussions between the show’s hosts and their guests each weekday morning."
"TNN is the perfect fit for our show," RICK & BABBA exclaimed. "We have the same goals, to bring solid family entertainment back to television that connects with the audience. It's good for all parties but it also fills a huge void in entertainment that families desperately need, something the family can watch together. Our audience has made it very clear they want the live radio show to return to TV after years of success on TURNER SOUTH and we’re happy to be returning via this exciting three year partnership with TNN."
