For the second time already I didn't find Rural Heritage on RFD-TV at the usual time Saturday 2p.m. CST. Is there a new schedule ?

Well....if there is a new schedule, they failed to inform me. I will find out and report back.

So it looks like we lost our Saturday slot at least temporarily. I am not happy about losing the slot and especially not happy about not being given notice we were going to be pre-empted by another program. Makes it hard to let people know when our show will be on.

Right now we are on only once a week, Tuesdays at 3:30 pm Central Time. Not sure when or if we will get the Saturday slot back.

One of the impacts of this is our ability to secure sponsors for the program. It is expensive to produce and with only a few exceptions, we have carried the cost, rationalizing that it helps us sell subscriptions. If we can't tell potential sponsors that we will be on Saturday afternoons, I don't know how we can convince them to come on board.

In the meantime, we will begin looking at other programming options, including social media platforms, that might provide more reliability and autonomy.

If anyone wishes to comment on RFD-TV programming decisions, they can write to
