DETROIT, Feb. 21 /Christian Newswire/ -- Parnell Media has announced that it has developed a Television Program to fill a void in mainstream media program line-ups. The company's Christian Music Video program "SHouT!" is now available for national and international distribution. In the United States, 84% of Americans are self described Christians, and over 100 million adults attend church in a typical weekend (Barna Research). Those are astonishing statistics. It is also true that Christian/Gospel radio is found in every major market, plus Sirius Satellite Radio, and XM radio. It stands to reason that those same people are a unique and loyal television audience. In fact, Gospel music has been featured within programming on each of the Major Networks, including shows like "The Oprah Winfrey Show", "The Today Show" (NBC), "Good Morning America" (ABC), "Alias" (ABC), and "One Tree Hill" (WB). It is also no coincidence that American Cable networks like BET, TV One, TBN and the new Gospel Music Channel and JCTV are thriving on Gospel Music television programming.
"SHouT!" bridges the gap, and allows Television Stations worldwide to get in on the growing phenomenon of Gospel music programming. "ShouT!" is a 30 minute weekly Christian music video program that put's a face on today's popular gospel sound, with a mix of Hip Hop, Pop, Rock, and Contemporary Gospel videos; as well as compelling interviews. The program gives stations the ability to reach out to an important, and loyal demographic - the Christian music buyer. "SHouT!" is a fun, entertaining and uplifting program that is perfect for Sunday morning and late night time slots.
Brands like: American Airlines, Coca Cola, Mary Kay, McDonald's, Southwest Airlines, Wal-Mart, Johnson & Johnson, Target, Toyota, and Chevrolet have already connected this powerful consumer base. In addition, local churches will want to associate with "SHouT!", because it will reach their target audience. This economic power creates a win win for Television Stations, because they can offer quality programming to their viewers, and increase ad revenue.
Damon Parnell, President of Parnell Media, LLC, and producer of SHouT! believes that "now is the time for Television and Cable Stations to actively pursue more diverse programming. I'm proud that we are able to offer an uplifting, and entertaining program to the millions of Christian Music fans in America. As a company, our goal is to become the world leader in original family friendly content by creating and developing high quality programming for television, radio, and the internet. SHouT! is just the first offering in a long list of ideas that are on the table, in fact, two more programs, and several special music events, are currently in development and should be released by the end of 2007."
In addition to the latest music videos, SHouT! fans can upload their own videos to the SHouT! website. "Adding consumer generated media to the website is one of the many things that really makes SHouT! unique. Now all gospel music enthusiasts can get in on the act, all they have to do is upload their videos to the site. You never know what could happen from that kind of free exposure. Plus, we're always looking for good material, so someone's video may make it to the broadcast version of the show."
"SHouT!" can currently be seen on: Christian Television Network - - (WLPC-TV 26 Detroit) on Fridays at 4:30pm, and Saturdays at 10:30am
