The network announced in late December that they had picked up the popular television reality show.
Aspire will air both old and new episodes of the series, according to a release.
The first season of Bama State Style originally ran on Lifetime Network and earned top ratings. After the conclusion, the show’s producers announced that the series will not continue on the network.
Melissa Ingram said in a statement that “Bama State Style is the perfect addition to the ASPiRE lineup as we continue to be the destination for HBCU programming.”
“ASPiRE is committed to showcasing the lifestyle and infectious pride of historically black colleges reflective of their value to the African-American community,” Ingram said.

Band Director James Oliver said that everyone is “excited about the opportunity to continue to showcase our students and University on a nationwide level.”
“Bama State Style showcases the efforts, talents, and hard work to our audience,” Oliver said. “We are honored that ASPiRE is allowing the Mighty Marching Hornets to tell our story on our new home, where everybody has a chance to be inspired.”
