Stephen Arnold Music Creates “We’re Your Station” For PappasOriginal image song to be used by eight TV stations (September 02, 2004)
Stephen Arnold Music, widely regarded as the leading provider of original and syndicated music to the broadcasting industry, with its musical compositions heard daily in over 100-million American homes on 280 television stations and numerous broadcast and cable TV networks, has created an original image song for eight Pappas TV Stations which will debut on September 7th. The announcement was made today by company founder/composer Stephen Arnold.
The song, entitled “We’re Your Station,” was written by Stephen Arnold, and was produced by Chad Cook, Creative Director, Stephen Arnold Music.
Said client Chris Beeler, Creative Director, Pappas Telecasting, Omaha, NE, “We have branded eight of our stations together under the ‘We’re Your Station’ slogan, as these stations feature similar on-air graphics and a similar ‘look and feel.’ Stephen Arnold Music produced a fabulously creative jingle for us, a real grand slam, that allows us the ability to tailor the lyrics of the song to each of these individual eight markets. It’s important for each of our stations to have a distinct personality, and this new song certainly helps us in defining these personalities.”
Added Mr. Arnold, “This was an interesting project, as it featured an electric Hammered Dulcimer, which I ran through my wah-wah pedal to give it a unique and distinctive, acid-gospel flavor. Vocals were performed by Nashville recording artist Jon Christopher.”
The eight Pappas TV stations that will feature the new “We’re Your Station” jingle are KMPH-TV, Fresno-Visalia, CA; KP-TV, Omaha, NE; KPWB-TV, Des Moines-Ames, IA; WTWB-TV, Greensboro, NC; KPTH-TV, Sioux City, IA; KSNB-TV/KTVG-TV, Lincoln/Kearney, NE; KDBC-TV, El Paso, TX; and KSWT-TV, Yuma, AZ & El Centro, CA.
