Nashville's Television Market

5 posts in this topic

There's a slew of articles on Nashville's TV market in the Tennessean today.

I have to say that I am most excited about having the Documentary Channel and Adrenaline Nation TV as those two are here because Nashville is a great business location and not just trying to feed from the religious/country market that we already have here. Of the channels that they listed, I have seen CMT, GAC, and RFD-TV.

It's kinda funny because at my college we get RFD-TV (the rural channel) but neither of the country networks. The rural channel actually has some really interesting programs.

I think there are some great opportunities for Nashville to see future growth in this area. For instance, in the news realm if News Channel 5+ were to expand to be a mid-South or Southeastern regional network (another question that I had was if it's very common to have a dedicated news station like that for a market our size?).

Do you-all think there is room for growth in this market, and where do you see future expansions?

Yeah, there is room for growth no doubt. But whether they are willing to stop the cutting of cost at the station level and actually COMPETE is another question though. All stations cut cost to the point of almost eliminating the competion factor from the game. The only way a station will grow is to be competitive among a group of stations.

With the success of several of our local networks (4 & 5), why can't they make the jump to HD programming? When I say programming, I mean local news and talk shows.
