May 28, 2009 6:41:21 AM PDT
Reverend Robert A. Schuller and Texas businessman Chris Wyatt announced Wednesday they're buying the AmericanLife TV Network and moving the cable channel's headquarters to Texas.Schuller is the former senior pastor of Crystal Cathedral, a famous Garden Grove church his father Reverend Robert H. Schuller founded. His father is also the "Hour of Power" televangelist.

Father and son had a falling out a few months ago, and the younger Schuller left the broadcast in Orange County.

Both Schuller and Wyatt have religious backgrounds, but they said in a statement that AmericanLife TV would not be strictly religious in content. Schuller said they plan to offer an alternative to other stations, which he blames for a decline in family values.
