A light at the end of an overly-traveled tunnel? Coming months could finally see a long-awaited (to put it mildly) shift in programming from GAC, which lost any connection to music long ago (aside from an occasional artist tour bus making a pop-in on a bus makeover rerun) in favor of RVs, log cabins, and bargain hunts. -TCC
An official statement says newly-formed GAC Media, LLC has purchased Great American Country (GAC) from Discovery, Inc. GAC Media was created by former Hallmark Channel President/CEO Bill Abbott in partnership with Hicks Equity Partners. Terms of the purchase have not been disclosed. GAC Media has also purchased independently-owned equestrian-themed channel Ride TV. Abbott will serve as Pres./CEO of GAC Media.
"Consumer interest in family friendly programming that enriches lives and offers safe entertainment options remains as strong as ever," he says. "GAC and Ride TV represent cornerstone assets in this respect, and we look forward to growing both channels."
