Bounce TV marks second anniversary with record growth in advertising and ratings

(September 26, 2013) Today Bounce TV celebrated its second year on the air, becoming the fastest growing African American network in television. Among the milestones the network has to its credit is rapidly expanding its reach to 87 markets including all of the top African American TV markets, 89% of all African American TV homes, and 71% of the total television homes in the U. S.

This upfront season, Bounce TV more than tripled the number of advertisers since its launch and has added nearly 30 new sponsors from such major categories as Automotive, Health & Beauty, Insurance Pharmaceutical, Motion Pictures, Fast Food/Casual Dining, Personal Care, Candy/Snacks and more.

The rapid growth accelerated its original programming plans and on Oct. 15, Bounce TV will premiere its first original scripted sitcom, My Crazy Roommate, created and produced by Bentley Kyle Evans ("Martin", "The Jamie Foxx Show") at 10:00 p.m. ET. My Crazy Roommate is a modern-day "Odd Couple" as Brooke (Laila Odom), a Brooklyn hipster and Chloe (Brittany Richards), a rich "valley girl" find themselves living together in one Los Angeles apartment.

At 10:30 p.m. ET, Bounce TV debuts BRKDWN, an original new half-hour series featuring the hottest gossip, freshest beats & need-to-know-now pop culture news each week with an urban swagger. Hosted by YouTube sensations, Cynthia LuCiette and Jon Scarlett. Alchemy Networks, the premiere digital network for urban lifestyle and entertainment, and BMP Digital, the digital division of leading production company Bunim/Murray Productions, have teamed to produce.

Bounce TV also recently began being rated by Nielsen -- an unprecedented achievement for a two-year-old network.

Martin Luther King III and Ambassador Andrew Young are among the Founding Group and Board of Directors of Bounce TV. The network 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. The network airs 24 hours a day, seven days a week on the digital signals of local television stations.
