In November, McGraw made the announcement of Merit Street Media, promising to provide viewers with “essential news and entertainment.” The business will have its headquarters at a brand-new broadcast hub in Forth Worth, Texas.

In introducing the network, McGraw remarked. “I absolutely love talking to real people about real problems. People who aren’t just complaining but are actively looking for real solutions to better their lives.” “Our basic principles and American families are being attacked. I adore this nation and think that the family is the foundation of our culture. We’re going to stand strong as a nation, defend America’s integrity, and put important things back on course.
