Antenna TV Turns One, More Affiliates Added; Sitcom Stars On Talk Shows (Week of December 19, 2011)


The Three Stooges

Happy Birthday Antenna TV! This January, Antenna TV, Tribune Broadcasting's digital multicast channel, celebrates one year on air with total clearances on 59 television stations across the country and a special birthday marathon. Last January, Antenna TV made its debut with The Three Stooges. In honor of that first milestone, on January 1, 2012 Antenna TV will air a Three Stooges Marathon from 8am ET to Midnight to commemorate the anniversary, as we hinted a few weeks ago.
In the first year on air, Antenna TV has cleared 57% of the country with affiliation agreements covering 8 of top 10 US markets, including WPIX-TV (11.4) New York, KTLA-TV (5.2) Los Angeles, and WGN-TV (9.2) Chicago, and 19 of top 25 markets. And this January, Antenna TV will add additional affiliates including: Atlanta (WATL-Gannett,) Las Vegas (KSNV-Intermountain West,) Buffalo (WGRZ-Gannett,) Lexington (WTVQ – Morris,) Chattanooga (WRCB- Sarkes Tarzian,) Ft. Wayne (WANE – LIN,) and Idaho Falls (KPVI- Intermountain West.) These new affiliates will increase Antenna TV's reach to 59 markets across the U.S. covering 57% of TV households. In addition to Tribune and Local TV, Antenna TV has partnered with several broadcast groups including Cox, Gannett, LIN, Media General and Capitol Broadcasting.
You'll start seeing these new affiliates in the next few weeks, with the first launching in Atlanta on WATL 36.3 on Christmas Eve, with the rest launching as early as Jan. 1. Check out the affiliates section for all your listing needs! And as always, stay with us for everything Antenna TV, such as programming updates and affiliate clearances!
