The Pulse of Entertainment: Canyon Star TV Network Launches with Over
(August 11, 2023) - "He always wanted a network...We have 700 programs,"
said Kelly Kantz, co-founder, and head of programming and new platforms at the newly launched Canyon
Star TV, named after its namesake Country icon Joey Canyon, who is co-founder "There is
so much negativity, we want feel good stuff."
The Canyon Star TV network is available through Google TV, Fire
TV, Roku, Apple TV and more. Canyon Star TV originals include The Joey Canyon Show and Cheri Lucas (The Dog Expert). Canyon
Star TV also airs the Patsy Cline documentary, the Tammy Wynette documentary, the ABBA documentary, The Beatles doc, the Bee
Gees doc, the Elvis Presley doc, Paula Dean's Positively Paula, Cajun Cookin' by Justin Wilson, and music videos from Kelly
Lang, Oliver Newton-John, the Oak Ridge Boys, and other Country music icons. It airs vintage shows such as The Lucy Show,
Dick Van Dyke, Adventures of Superman, Shirley Temple, The Andy Giffith Show and more.
"We started showing
music videos because no one is doing it," Kelly told me when discussing the network. "We just added a radio show.
We keep adding things...there is no big corporation telling us what to do."
Joey Canyon is CEO of the network
and Kantz serves as president. It is a free streaming platform that offers kids programs, talk shows, music videos, outdoor
living, faith-based programming, and other family-friendly programs.
"Our faith programs are growing every day," Kelly added. "It's
not preachy...one is called ‘Today in Nashville' its all about the faith."
"The motivation was
to create a network that was clean, then Covid started, and people had to figure out how to make money and started to make
their own movies," she explained.
The pandemic gave Joey the opportunity to do what he always wanted, launch
his own broadcasting network.
"It's about real-life people...lifestyles. We love working with good people,"
Kelly Kantz said when I asked about their motivation.
