Both Canyon and president and co-founder Kelly Kantz bring together their love for all aspects of the entertainment industry while providing viewers with something new, exciting, and enriching for the whole family.

On January 27th of 2023, Canyon Star TV became a global reality, and a true blessing for me and Kelly Kantz, my co-founder and president. We will continue to provide the very best in quality family entertainment.”
