Hallmark Trims Religious Programming

Jan 3, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Hallmark Channel owner Crown Media Holdings reached an agreement with the National Interfaith Cable Coalition, which owns a stake in the company and provides programming to the channel, that reduces the amount of faith-related shows on the network.
Hallmark and the coalition had a program production and broadcast deal that expired at the end of 2007.
Under the settlement, Hallmark Channel will continue to broadcast a two-hour Sunday morning block of faith and values programming from the National Interfaith Cable Coalition. The NICC last year had six hours of programming on the channel on Sundays and one hour each weekday morning at 7 a.m.
NICC also will relinquish its right to compel Crown Media to purchase more than 4 million shares of Crown Media common stock, currently held by NICC. NICC also is giving up its seat on the Crown Media board.
