Scheduled To Appear – 03/20
The Hall of Fame has named the channel as its official home, ending a 12-year relationship with VH1.
How is Fuse planning to get its core audience, 18-to-25-year-olds, interested in something that pays tribute to acts that were probably in their heyday before they were ever born?
By mining past induction ceremonies for material. The channel will broadcast programming featuring younger artists who appeared at past events to honor their predecessors in the weeks leading up to the actual ceremony.
Fuse’s vice president of talent and music, Dave Weier, says the Hall of Fame is already getting help in its quest for a younger audience from an unlikely ally, “Guitar Hero,” which has made them more familiar with classic acts.
Hall of Fame foundation president Joel Peresman also notes there has been a increase in teenaged visitors over the past few years.
