Bounce TV Reaches Distro Deal

Comments (2)


Bounce TV -- the self-proclaimed first ever over-the-air channel created exclusively for African-Americans -- has reached a distribution deal with Raycom Media. The deal is the first of its kind for Bounce TV, which launched earlier this year and will begin broadcasting in 26 different markets this fall.

Bounce TV was founded by Ambassador Andrew Young and Martin Luther King III (pictured). When the network was announced, they had already acquired rights to over nearly 200 titles with NBCUniversal Domestic Television, 100 titles with Sony Pictures Television, and a multi-year agreement with Urban Sports Entertainment Group, thus allowing them to air football and basketball games in the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA), the largest African-American athletic conference.

"Bounce TV is the right network at the right time for our stations," Raycom president and CEO Paul McTear said in a statement to the press. Bounce TV distribution chief Jeffrey Wolf said, "Landing our first station group is significant, but to explode out of the gate with Raycom, a leader in providing local television across the country, is tremendous and instantly validates the mission of Bounce TV."

Below, a list of the markets in which Bounce TV will be made available through Raycom Media.

Cleveland/Akron, OH (WOIO/WUAB) Charlotte, NC (WBTV) Cincinnati, OH (WXIX) West Palm Beach, FL (WFLX) Birmingham, AL (WBRC) Memphis (WMC) Louisville, KY (WAVE) Richmond, VA (WUPV) Columbia, SC (WIS) Huntsville, AL (WAFF) Shreveport, LA (KSLA) Jackson, MS (WLBT) Baton Rouge, LA (WAFB) Savannah, GA (WTOC) Charleston, SC (WCSC) Myrtle Beach/Florence, SC (WMBF) Tyler/Lufkin, TX (KLTV) Augusta GA (WFXG) Montgomery, AL (WSFA) Columbus, GA (WTVM) Wilmington, NC (WECT) Biloxi, MS (WLOX) Hattiesburg, MS (WDAM) Dothan, AL (WDFX) Lake Charles, LA (KPLC)
