Reality TV Lands In Nashville… BIG Time!

Well, well, well… not only are there a bunch of current Reality TV Show contestants who are from Tennessee (many from the Nashville area), but it also appears that one of the most popular websites covering all there is to know about Reality TV shows is based right here out of Brentwood, Tennessee!

(Or, I should say… the site’s creator, Joe Blackmon, hails from Brentwood.)

Who knew???

The site is called Reality TV Magazine, and it’s an up-to-the-minute blog covering all of the Reality TV shows and their stars.

With nearly a million visitors a month, it’s HOT!

If you like reality shows at all, be sure to check out this site.

Blackmon says his media venture began humbly. “I started out as just your average reality TV fan with an idea,” he says. Today, his Web site draws nearly a million hits per month, he adds.

In addition, more than 5,000 fans are expected to attend the June 3-4, 2006 event at the Nashville Airport Marriott. Tickets cost $15 for one day, or $25 for two days. Word is, tickets must be purchased online in advance. Tickets will not be sold at the door.

The Fox Reality cable channel will also be at the event:

“We have a daily show, Reality Remix, which covers the world of reality, and so this could be the biggest gathering of stars of reality since the genre began. We certainly need to be there. We think the reality genre is as healthy as it’s ever been.”
