I know many of you are big fans of the "GMC" network - epsecially since they play great family movies, old and new! And, they continue to show great family dramas: like Heartland and The Waltons! So... I wanted to be sure to give you a "heads up" on this upcoming change.
Coming September 1, 2013: "GMC", previously known as Gospel Musical Channel, will be renamed: "UP" and the network will have a new logo. This new name coincides with their network messaging and tagline: "Uplifting Entertainment".
UPDATE: Please Note- Since this post was written, GMC has moved up the changing of their name to June 1st, 2013!
Here is a statement from the CEO and President of GMC TV, Charles Humbard : "From the day we launched the network we have delivered on our unique brand promise to provide Uplifting Entertainment for viewers who want programming that supports their family values. UP is a fun, fresh name that embodies our unique brand position and further distinguishes us from the non family values programming so prevalent today."
