Michelle Clancy | 12-06-2013
The Me-TV Network has signed three new affiliation agreements with Gray Television stations: KSNB-Lincoln, Nebraska (DMA #105), WSWG-Albany, Georgia (DMA #145) and WTVY-Dothan, Alabama (DMA #169).
These new affiliates bring Me-TV to 150 markets; the network now clears 90% of the country.
"We at Gray Television are proud to be adding three more Me-TV stations to our portfolio," said Greg Conklin, corporate programming director for Gray Television. "With the other five clearances we already have on air, this brings our total to eight Me-TV affiliates. All of our viewers have responded well to the addition of Me-TV in our markets. In most cases, we have been told that adding Me-TV in these markets has generated more viewers for our other stations."
In addition to being available in all top ten television markets, the network can be found in 28 of the top 30 markets in the United States. It's carried by several major media groups, including Hearst, Gannett, Raycom, Allbritton, Media General, Post-Newsweek, Nexstar, London Broadcasting, Belo, Hubbard, Cordillera, Bahakel, Fisher, Cox, Morgan Murphy, Grant, New Press Gazette, New Age, Granite, Capitol, Dispatch, Journal, Bonten and Titan.
Me-TV, which is short for Memorable Entertainment TV, has a library that includes almost 100 series from Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution, CBS Television Distribution and NBCUniversal Television, as well as many independent series owners and producers. The line-up includes several classics, including: M*A*S*H, The Brady Bunch, The Beverly Hillbillies, Perry Mason, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Gunsmoke, I Love Lucy and Hawaii Five-O.
Me-TV launched nationally in December 2010.
