Additionally, Pierce and K-LOVE Fan Awards co-creator and producer John Sanders introduced special guest Jon Klein, co-founder and CEO of TAPP, to unveil K-LOVE TV. The network, set to launch as a subscription based TV channel this spring, is the first of its kind for the faith-based entertainment industry. TAPP, the brainchild of reality television pioneers Jeff Gaspin and Jon Klein, recently launched the Sarah Palin Channel, Herman Cain Channel, New Life TV and is partnering with K-LOVE and John Sanders LLC to build K-LOVE TV from the ground up.
"We're excited to provide K-LOVE fans with a gathering place where they can be fully immersed in a community that they love," said Klein. "The artists they'll meet and the stories they'll watch on K-LOVE TV will pull members deeper than ever into the music, message and meaning of the Christian songs and artists they adore. We'll offer premium content and provide subscribers ongoing opportunities to interact with fellow K-LOVE fans and radio personalities."
"We are thrilled about K-LOVE TV creating another avenue for fans to connect and go deeper with K-LOVE, their faith and the artists they love," said Mike Novak, K-LOVE President and CEO.
