Two Little Rock companies, Exclaim Health TV LLC and P. Allen Smith Cos., have entered an agreement to provide new television programming for viewing in health care settings.
Exclaim has licensed home, garden and lifestyle content from P. Allen Smith to be broadcast in facilities — generally doctors' offices, hospitals and wellness centers — that subscribe to Exclaim's networks.
"Strategically, we could not be more excited about adding a world class brand such as P. Allen Smith to our programming line-up," Exclaim CEO Benton Brandon said in a news release. "It allows us to add positive programing covering the home and garden arena, and more importantly it will please our subscribing hospitals and viewers with access to a home, garden, and lifestyle legend."
Positive is a keyword in the announcement. The programming "will include positive news, weather, home and garden, food, fashion, entertainment and health topics," according the release. Viewers in waiting rooms, lobbies and even patient rooms also have the opportunity to view physician bios and community outreach information tailored to the specific facility.
P. Allen Smith is a designer and gardening and lifestyle expert. He is the host of two public television programs, "P. Allen Smith's Garden Home" and "P. Allen Smith's Garden to Table," and the syndicated 30-minute show "P. Allen Smith Gardens."
