BransonFest to be broadcast on national television

RFD-TV announced today that it will record and air all performances from the 2007 BransonFest in a new, weekly one-hour prime time television show, BransonFest, beginning in May.

Each show will feature 4 or 5 of the individual performances performed on the Welk Resort Theatre stage, and will air three times each week on RFD-TV premiering at 9pm on Friday evening, with repeats scheduled for Sunday afternoon at 4pm, and again Monday at 1pm (all times Eastern). RFD-TV is currently seen in over 30 million homes in all 50 states on DIRECTV (channel 379), DISH Network (channel 231), and numerous cable systems including Mediacom, Charter, Bresnan, NCTC, and locally in Branson on Suddenlink (channel 4).

“This will be a tremendous opportunity for viewers across the nation to see for themselves a sample of the outstanding talent performing in Branson for the 2007 season,” stated Patrick Gottsch, Founder & President of RFD-TV. “We believe that once these viewers see BransonFest, they will want to travel to Branson to see these shows and attractions for themselves in the coming year. Again, this is a great example of why RFD-TV recently moved to Branson, as this new production is sure to be a big hit with our audience.”

BransonFest and Branson Theatre Showcase are sponsored on RFD-TV in part by the Branson Convention and Visitors Bureau. In addition, the Welk Resort Theatre, Presley Theatre, and Silver Dollar City run commercial spots in the programming to promote their own attractions.
