Gaither Programming to debut on Hallmark
With all the channels the Gaither TV specials have been on, one they have never been on is the Hallmark Channel.
Until tonight, that is.
Tonight, at 8 PM EST/PST (not sure if that’s a typo, since it is two separate times), and 7 PM CST, the Gaither show will be aired on Hallmark for the first time. [EDIT, 11/8/10: The link is broken and has been removed.]
This jumps out to me as big news because at one point (earlier this year) I was on the phones in a call center taking calls for a certain Christian charity on a regular basis. There was a regular, predictable amount of call volume most of the time, but one night, when they aired a program on Hallmark for the first time since I’d been taking those calls, we were swamped by at least ten times the normal amount of call volume.
Gaither will be airing one of his recent hymns tapings as the hour-long special, and the Gaither operators should at least be prepared for quite the response.
