Bounce TV adds KDSK-TV in St. Louis, renews market distribution agreements

(August 19, 2013) Continuing its ongoing growth and expansion, Bounce TV has announced a distribution agreement with Gannett Broadcasting's KSDK-TV which will make the station the exclusive provider of Bounce TV in St. Louis, MO, it was announced by Bounce TV Executive Vice President of Distribution Jeffrey Wolf.  KSDK will carry the nation's fastest-growing and only broadcast television network for African Americans on channel 5.2 beginning August 28.  Bounce will also be available on Charter Cable channel 87.

The agreement is Bounce TV's third with a Gannett station; the network is also carried by Gannett's WUSA-TV in Washington, DC, and WATL-TV in Atlanta.

With the launch in St. Louis, Bounce TV will now be available in all 25 of the top 25 African American television markets and the network's penetration will rise further to 89% of African American television homes and 71% of the total United States. Bounce TV also recently announced a sweeping range of renewals and new launches by major station groups representing coverage in 40 markets. The young network will be two years old in September.

"We are thrilled and grateful to have Bounce TV come to the great city of St. Louis thanks to KSDK," commented Wolf.

"KSDK is excited to expand our programming and provide St. Louis with Bounce TV," said Lynn Beall, President and General Manager. "Distributing Bounce TV is one more demonstration of KSDK's commitment to St. Louis' African American audience and to the community at large."   

Bounce TV targets African American adults with a programming mix of original series, theatrical motion pictures, live sports, documentaries, specials, game shows and inspirational faith-based programs.
