General Discussion / ABC Family to Become ABCF
« on: August 09, 2010, 02:17:11 PM »
Later this year, it looks like ABC Family will be rebranded as ABCF. It could end up as something the original owners (CBN & Pat Robertson) won't be happy about since the contract handed over through the original sale to Fox in 1997 says the word, "family", is supposed to stay in the networks name forever as well as airing "The 700 Club". The new name could possibly make some of you think of your report cards from school. :fear: I guarantee there is absolutely now way Pat Robertson would be bought like that. :thumbdown:
