I like this idea.
A channel that reaches 50million households, promoting the Fort Worth Stockyards

I agree.  This is an idea that makes lots of sense. Do it.

A cable channel that promotes a "rural lifestyle" may soon be based in a big city. That's odd.

 

Hopefully, they promote Fort Worth as a big city instead of as a small town.

As this week has demonstrated, if there is one lesson taught to the amazement of a lot of us,  there is a huge and unseen rural population in this country. :ninja:

Nashville is a "big city" at least in the same class as Fort Worth, and it has long been successful in pulling off the "small-town"persona. Part of the history of Fort Worth and other Texas cities has been to attract residents from surrounding rural areas for happenings and events; Stock Show, cattle auctions, business/banking, etc. Much of this sort of activity has been decentralized over the years as a result of improved transportation and communication, so finding a way to link the city to the country is probably a good thing. Having the city subsidize this company... Maybe not. If there are specific and contractual obligations and benefits for both sides, that would be better than just throwing public money at something that sounds good but might not bring tangible value to the people of the city.

Apparently, RFD-TV produces newscasts. They debuted a fancy new studio set in Nashville recently:

 

 

The Fort Worth Business article mentioned that RFD-TV would build a sidewalk studio like WFAA in Dallas or the Today Show in New York City.

 

Hopefully, the studio set they build here (if they do) will look as nice as the set in Nashville.

Nothing says "authentic wild west experience" like a TV studio.
