'JBTV' is good, now it's nationwide

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

News from the home TV front: Chicago's "JBTV" -- a locally produced, weekly syndicated program featuring musician interviews and performances -- has inked a deal to go nationwide. Starting Feb. 18, the one-hour show will air in more than a dozen major markets across the country.

The deal links "JBTV" (the initials nod to founder Jerry Bryant) to the NBC Nonstop network, a successful digital subchannel that grew out of New York's WNBC as a localized, 24-hour news service and now includes Nonstop channels in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Miami, Philadelphia, Dallas, Washington, D.C., and more.

Launched in 1984, "JBTV" has produced nearly 4,000 episodes. Check out the recent special episode showing the making of Rise Against's "Make It Stop (September's Children)" video ...

The quality content is available on the air (NBC Chicago Nonstop digital channel 5.2 and WJYS-Channel 62, see showtimes and channels here), on YouTube, as a podcast or streaming on the "JBTV" site.
