Yesterday the National Quartet Convention Board of Directors announced a broadcast partnership with TBN. TBN is the world’s largest religious network and America’s most watched faith channel.
The Trinity Broadcast Network will film at the 2012 National Quartet Convention, then create original programming that will be aired in the fall of 2012 and into 2013.
“We are excited about this partnership with TBN to produce original programming, featuring footage captured at this year’s NQC,” states Clarke Beasley, Executive Vice President of the NQC. “TBN has shown strong commitment to our music over the last several years, and we look forward to having our music featured on a weekly basis on the world’s largest Christian network.”
Currently Daystar airs the "Gospel Music Showcase" which features highlights from artists' main stage performances at the National Quartet Convention. Do you watch? I do. This season has featured interviews with artists as well as their performances. It is interesting that some episodes feature two artists while others just feature one. And to me it doesn't seem that the top groups necessarily get a show to themselves. Some top artists I haven't seen highlighted yet, and I believe they are now airing reruns, so I don't guess an episode will feature them. Overall, I do enjoy the program and look forward to seeing it, since I don't go to the National Quartet Convention.
Does it matter to you what network as long as you get to see your favorite artists perform? Interested to hear your opinions.
