(December 6, 2013) Bounce TV, the nation's only broadcast television network targeting African Americans, unveiled another round of network renewals by current affiliates and launches by new ones in announcements made by Bounce TV Executive Vice President of Distribution Jeffrey Wolf.
Gannett Broadcasting has renewed Bounce TV on WUSA-TV in Washington, D.C. and WATL-TV in Atlanta, GA. Nexstar Broadcasting Group, Inc. has renewed Bounce TV in nine markets through 2017 including Little Rock, AR; Rochester, NY; Jacksonville, FL; Peoria/Bloomington, IL; Rockford, IL and Monroe, LA. Bounce TV was the first network that Nexstar deployed on a large scale in their digital spectrum.
"We are very grateful to all of our affiliates for their unwavering support of Bounce TV," commented Wolf. "Nexstar and Gannett believed in our mission early on and were pioneers in embracing Bounce TV. Now their stations will continue to reap benefits from the tremendous value we bring to their local markets."
