Mar 7, 2006  •  Post A Comment

Fox’s MyNetworkTV announced Tuesday that it has wrapped up agreements for affiliates in five markets, including Raycom Media for its UPN-affiliated WUAB-TV in Cleveland (market No. 16), WB-affiliated KFVE-TV in Honolulu (market 72) and UPN-affiliated WBXH-TV in Baton Rouge (market 96).

In addition, agreements have been reached with Capitol Broadcasting for WB-affiliated WWWB-TV in Charlotte, N.C. (market 27); and Mirage Media for UPN-affiliated KPSE-TV in Palm Springs (market 153).

The new deals, combined with last week’s announcement of a 17-station pact with Sinclair Broadcast Group and 10 Fox-owned stations that had been affiliated with UPN, means MYNetworkTV’s coverage is now at 40 percent of the country’s TV homes.
