Syndicated Solutions Inc. has announced an agreement with TNN television to begin simulcasting its syndicated radio morning program, “The Rick & Bubba Show” effective November 1. The Nashville Network will carry the show live weekdays from 6-11am ET and Saturdays from 6-8am ET. They will also air a one-hour “best-of” version each week night from 7-8pm ET, from the morning broadcast earlier in the day.
SSI President Bob Carey commented, “We’ve been seeking to marry The Rick & Bubba Show with a national TV network for several years 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.”
Luken Communications/TNN VP Matt Winn added, “TNN proudly welcomes The Rick & Bubba Show to America’s Country Home. 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.”
Rick & Bubba currently airs on over 60 affiliates that include a mix of News/Talk, Country, Sports, CHR, Rock and AC as well as via Sirius XM. The program is also broadcast as a one-hour daily TV show on several regional television stations.
