Ion Television, the nation’s largest broadcast television station group, announced a new set of programming initiatives for the 2008-09 season Thursday at its upfront presentation in New York.
Under the new network branding motto “Positively Entertaining,” Ion introduced a slate of prime-time programming comprised of syndicated episodes of “Boston Legal,” “ER,” “The Dead Zone,” “Ghost Whisperer” and “Criminal Minds.”
The network, which targets the 25-54 demographic, also announced plans to air 12 original movies produced by RHI Entertainment, its partner in weekend primetime programming.
“Advertisers aiming to build market share and showcase their products need look no further than our new lineup,” said Ion president of sales and marketing Stephen Appel in a statement. “Ion Television will be recognized for its value, innovation, ratings growth and expansive reach.”
Ion Television, owned and operated by Ion Media Networks, reaches more than 94 million U.S. television households through its nationwide broadcast television, cable and satellite distribution systems. Via digital multicasting, Ion Media has launched digital TV brands including kids channel qubo.
