Over two decades ago, a man, a microphone and an intense passion for music came together to form what has become Chicago's longest-running music television show - JBTV. 2011 marks JBTV's 26th anniversary, and we're celebrating by bringing you even more music and amazing artists and adding dynamic new hosts. Committed to showcasing music stemming from both the national and local level, JBTV houses a massive archive of footage including classic episodes featuring Radiohead, The Smashing Pumpkins, Kill Hannah, Ben Folds Five, Green Day, The Flaming Lips, Fall Out Boy, Garbage, Ministry, and Joey Ramone. JBTV continues to welcome great artists like Against Me!, JP, Chrissie (Hynde) & the Fairground Boys, The Gaslight Anthem, Silversun Pickups, Foxy Shazam, AM Taxi, Hot Hot Heat, Circa Survive, and Dan Black to the studio, just to name a few. Jerry Bryant, JBTV's namesake and host, has produced and aired almost 3,700 weekly thirty minute and one-hour episodes of the show since its inception. In the process, his love for unique music television programming has twice garnered the coveted Billboard Music Video Award for ´Best Local/Regional Alternative Modern Rock Show´ and multiple Emmy Awards for production and motion graphics. Jerry may be known for his free form interview style and signature chuckle, but what sets him apart from the rest is his dedication to presenting artists, otherwise ignored by mainstream media outlets, to his loyal viewers. To ensure we capture music in its purest form, JBTV is produced in a true total-environment rock & roll music video production house, which includes a state of the art high definition sound stage spanning 5,500 square feet. Our studios are filled with the latest in video, recording, and editing equipment. Our crew is made up of music lovers who share a devotion for spreading our latest favorite tunes and artists. JBTV has developed over 4,000 hours of original content that reaches an audience of approximately 13 million people via NBC Chicago Nonstop (digital channel 5.2 - Comcast and over-the-air TV) and WJYS-62 Chicago (Comcas, DIRECTV, and Dish Network). Throughout the years, our top priority has continuously been to create the highest quality content possible. Continuously hosting many of the biggest names in modern rock history early in their careers, JBTV is the longest running source for modern music television in the nation and one of the few remaining examples of Chicago´s proud tradition of local programming. JBTV IS NEW MUSIC. NOW.
