(L-R): Buddy Winsett and Jim West
Co-Founder and President
The concept behind the LegacyTV network is to celebrate America’s Judeo-Christian heritage. Co-founder Jim West said he wanted to start the network because of the alarming disregard many Americans have toward the values and beliefs of the founding fathers.
“The focus of the prime-time programming is to teach the viewer what our founders believed and why it is still relevant today,” West added. “But we have programming for the entire family, from children’s shows, movies, women’s programming, and Bible study, to outdoor programming on Saturdays.”
LegacyTV is among the newer members of the NRB. The network launched in 2010 and has grown to 175 affiliated stations reaching into over 30 million homes.
Prime-time programming offers presentations from William Federer’s Faith in History (a TCT production), the late Rev. Peter Marshall’s Restoring America, and WallBuilder’s David Barton’s American Heritage Series (a TBN production). Also featured is the Randall Terry Show which is fed each day from Washington D.C., examining current events in the light of a Christian worldview. That is supplemented with documentary series on Christian History from the vaults of Vision Video and Gateway Films.
The network was started in part by Buddy Winsett, a broadcast and satellite veteran, and Jim West, a 41-year broadcasting veteran, member of the NRB TV Committee, and co-founder of the WORSHIP, PraiseTV, and FaithTV networks.
