Bobby Bones To Host New Grand Ole Opry TV Show
Live from the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville... it's Bobby Bones. Our very own 101.9 The Bull morning show host has signed on to host a brand new show on a brand new country music and lifestyle TV/streaming network. The channel is called Circle, and it features original programming based around a country music performances, lifestyle, news, discovery, and documentaries. While many music networks have strayed away from their music roots, Circle is designed to make the music and the artists the focal point. The name Circle comes from the famous wooden circle that is inlayed front, center stage of the Grand Ole Opry. The wooden circle dates back to the origins of the Opry when it was at the Ryman Auditorium. It is a major moment in a musicians career when they get to stand in that circle that so many legends have once stood before.
Bobby will be the host and executive producer of a new show called Opry. It will be a weekly, one-hour show that features highlights from the stage of the Grand Ole Opry. It has been years since the Grand Ole Opry stage and radio show was last televised, and this new TV show will be bringing the country music icon back to televisions and streaming devices. The show will feature the past week's live performances and backstage chats with everyone that took to the Opry stage. The new show will premiere on February 26th, with new episodes each Wednesday at 8pm central.
If you use an antenna at home, you can view Circle locally in Amarillo on 31.3. No word from Suddenlink or satellite providers on if the channel is available through their platforms. But good news, on demand streaming will be coming this summer!
