T. Boone Pickens Brings Energy Pitch to RFD-TV


T. Boone Pickens will bring his message addressing the energy crisis to farmers, ranchers and rural landowners during a live broadcast on RFD-TV Wednesday night.

Pickens will discuss his “Pickens Plan” with network host Orion Samuelson and take questions from RFD-TV’s national television audience along with guests in the Nashville studio made up of rural youth, including Tennessee FFA and 4-H members. The special broadcast is scheduled to last for 90 minutes. The show will originate from the NorthStar/RFD-TV studios. The plan calls for more use of natural gas and wind power to reduce dependence on oil.

The program—an RFD-TV news special and not an advertising time buy, the network said—will be rebroadcast on both Thursday, Oct. 30, at 10a.m. ET /9 a.m. CT and again at 3 a.m. ET on Sunday, Nov. 2.
