Reno began airing his show in 1993 on another network as "Reno's Old Time Music Festival." It was the first and only national television show featuring Bluegrass and acoustic music and could be seen in 28 million households. Because of the show's rich music/talk format and Reno's influence in getting top-name guests, the show was a huge success, earning Reno a nomination for the prestigious Cable Ace Award for "Best Musical Series" and the nickname "The Dick Clark of Bluegrass."

This award-winning weekly music/talk show is the brainchild of Producer/Host Ronnie Reno, whose over-60-year career helped forge the sound and songs of so many legendary Bluegrass and Country Music entertainers, including Reno & Smiley, The Osborne Brothers, Merle Haggard, The Reno Brothers, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Vassar Clements, Sammi Smith, Johnny Paycheck, Mac Wiseman and Conway Twitty, to name just a few.

Today, with its transition to the RFD-TV network, "Reno's Old Time Music" reaches an estimated 47 million homes weekly and pulling an estimated 1.3 million monthly viewers. Although the name has changed slightly, the format remains largely the same, which includes performances by Ronnie Reno & The Reno Tradition and the weekly featured guest, an interview segment, the extremely popular "Super Pickers" segment and a sterling closing performance by the guest, who is joined by Reno on the Main Stage. Reno was honored with both the IBMA "Distinguished Achievement" (2006) and "Broadcaster of the Year" (2013) awards due to the continued success of the show.
