Country singer-turned-sitcom star Reba McEntire will host the seventh annual Family Television Awards. McEntire, star of the WB show, "Reba," first hosted the awards in 2000. "She's a great entertainer and a solid role model," said Kaki Hinton, co-chairwoman of the Family Friendly Programming Forum, which presents the awards.

A group of national advertisers formed the forum in 1998 to promote airing family-oriented fare during television's primetime hours, from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. It funds script development for programs that "have cross-generational appeal, depict real-life situations and handle those issues very responsibly," Hinton said.

The group's efforts are not totally altruistic, said Pat Gentile, national television programming manager for Procter & Gamble and a forum member. "We're all in business," he said. "If you can have an adult and the children all in one place, watching a program with your advertising available, that's a home run."
