NAACP Image Awards Move To Cable With TV One Deal
The Image Awards had been a staple on broadcast TV. They aired on NBC for nine years before moving to Fox. NBC took over as a network home for the 43rd and 44th edition of the awards show, which honots “the accomplishments of people of color in the fields of television, music, literature and film and also honors individuals or groups who promote social justice through creative endeavors.” TV One will air live broadcasts of the Image Awards and red carpet arrivals in 2014. In addition, the network will provide promotional support on TV One, Radio One and Reach Media, Interactive One, and via a multi-platform marketing campaign.
