Christian TV Showcase at NRB 2020: Call for Entries

The TV Showcase will return for the NRB 2020 Christian Media Convention and is now accepting entries. This event is designed to showcase programs for producers looking for exposure to network program directors and station managers.

“The Showcase is an excellent opportunity for producers to show off their programs, especially if they are trying to be noticed by network programmers,” said Lee Miller, a member of NRB’s TV Standing Committee. “Some of the best programs on Christian TV got their start by entering the showcase. We have agreements that TV network program directors will be in attendance.”

Program entry fees have been waived but a Full Registration, Expo-Plus Registration, or Friday-Only Registration will be required to participate.  The Showcase Entry is available here.

The Showcase itself will be held on Friday, February 28, 3:30-5:30 p.m. in Canal A/B at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee. 

The Showcase is also an opportunity for those in need of programs to see what is available and to get contact information and talk with producers and directors.  Station managers and program directors find the venue convenient to check out new products and see current work that may not yet be owned by networks or affiliates.

Frequently, Showcase winners find themselves with invitations into markets and on to stations that otherwise might be very difficult to enjoy. 

Randy Weiss from the program CrossTalk and Today with God entered the showcase with his very first program. “NRB’s TV Showcase helped our program reach network distribution and I encourage producers young and old to submit a program,” he said. “I even plan to have a new program in the Showcase this year.”

All those with questions about the TV Showcase are invited to contact Lee Miller of MSGPR at (936) 637-7593 or For questions related to registration, contact Monica Palmer at, or call 202-849-8444.

Dear Fellow LPTV Broadcaster and Industry Leaders,

The auction has ended and most of us are still here.  While it was not only our hope but the hope of many others that the auction would not take place . . . it did, but it did not have the devastating effect that it might have had. 

The world after the auction looks different and amazingly so has a very bright future!

What does that future look like?  Not only the amazing possibilities of ATSC 3.0 but the landscape of a nation of people who are increasingly cutting their cable cords and looking for free, over the air, broadcasting content.
