The new music video channel The Country Network (TCN) has been picked up by Sinclair Broadcast Group and will be available in some markets by October. Tammy Genovese joined TCN’s Music Row office as Pres. TCN Nashville in April.
TCN and Sinclair have entered into an agreement to launch TCN’s star-hosted music video programming on the broadcast digital tier in most of Sinclair’s markets. Sinclair is one of the nation’s largest broadcast groups, with 58 stations in 35 markets covering 22% of the U.S. television households. TCN will launch in October in 28 Sinclair markets reaching 17% of the country, with the remaining Sinclair markets expected to come on board by early 2011.
TCN founder and CEO Warren Hansen says several more agreements are in the works, and should be announced in the near future.
TCN is dedicated exclusively to airing country music videos, with the slogan “all Country Music, all the time.” The outlet is already streaming live.
