“WGN America” Contract Renewed
June 4, 2013
Beyond Today to begin fourth year telecasting on WGN America
We are pleased report that negotiations with WGN America for renewal of our Beyond Today airtime contract are now complete. Beginning July 7, 2013, the United Church of God will begin its fourth year of telecasting every Sunday on WGN America at 8:30 a.m. EST.
Our new contract runs for two years—until June 28, 2015. It includes a standard 4-week cancellation clause and a very modest price increase of about 1 percent per week for the term. This year WGN America gained about 1-1.5% in household subscribers, up from 75 million to 76.5 million.
