“With music being such essential component of our viewers’ holidays and celebrations all year long, Hallmark Channel Radio is the perfect complement to Hallmark Channel’s seasonal programming franchises,” said Bill Abbott, president & CEO, Crown Media Family Networks. “Our collaboration with SiriusXM was a huge success during last year’s ‘Countdown to Christmas’ and we look forward to building on this exciting new relationship further, beginning with wedding season in June.”
