Announcing: Chicago and West Coast Beyond Today TV Station Additions
June 17, 2011
As you may recall, when Beyond Today began airing on WGN America about a year ago in all 210 U.S. media markets except Chicago, we mentioned our next step would be to add this third largest market to our telecast schedule as soon as funds permitted. That time has now come!
Chicago: Beginning July 10, 2011, Beyond Today will air on Chicago’s ION network station, WCPX-TV. This station covers 100% of the Chicago metropolitan area as well as portions of northwest Indiana and southwest Wisconsin, reaching 3,335,000 households. Our programs will air every Sunday morning on broadcast and satellite channel 38 and cable channel 13 at 9:30 a.m.
Also, since WGN America airs very early on Sunday mornings in the Pacific time zone, it was our desire to reach the area with the Beyond Today telecast at a better airtime. As a result of months of research and negotiation, television stations in the Los Angeles and San Francisco, California and the Seattle, Washington, media markets will be added to our line-up beginning July 10, 2011. Here are the details:
Los Angeles: Beyond Today will air in Los Angeles, the second largest media market in the U.S., on the ION network station KPXN-TV every Sunday at 9:30 a.m. Our programs will reach 4,200,000 households (equaling 72% of the market) on broadcast channel 30 and cable channel 8.
San Francisco: Additionally, San Francisco, the sixth largest U.S. media market, will receive Beyond Today on ION network station KKPX-TV on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. on broadcast and satellite channel 65 and cable channel 16. This station’s signal reaches 2,685,596 households throughout San Francisco and a portion of Monterey, equaling 106% of the entire media market.
Seattle: Finally, CBS affiliate station KIRO-TV in Seattle, Washington, the thirteenth largest U.S. Media market, will air our programs every Sunday at 9:30 a.m. on broadcast and satellite channel 7.2 and cable channel 117. Interestingly, this station reaches 166% of market (3,105,750 households) because it’s media footprint includes a portion of the Canadian province of British Columbia.
As a result of these additions to the Beyond Today schedule, a total of 13,326,346 additional households will be reached weekly at these new times. We certainly give our Eternal Father and Jesus Christ all the credit and the glory for this important step forward in preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. Our grateful thanks also go to you for your effective prayers for the success of our research and negotiations. You can be assured that everyone at the home office deeply appreciates your outstanding help and encouragement. Please continue your diligent prayers that many people will tune-in and respond to God’s Word.
