Nashville, TN – Christian television channel NRBTV is a Gold Level Sponsor of Proclaim 16, the NRB International Christian Media Convention, which will take place February 23-26 in Nashville, TN.
Formerly known as the NRB Network, NRBTV recently rebranded and changed its name after marking 10 years of broadcasting.
During Proclaim 16, NRBTV will provide exclusive television coverage of the Presidential Candidates Forum that will take place February 23-25. Over the course of three days, Presidential candidates will be interviewed on-stage by panelists on issues of importance to the evangelical community.
