Bounce TV was introduced to the public last September and it has been a critically acclaimed success. This groundbreaking network may change the trajectory of television programming for minorities in the years to come.
Bounce TV is the nation’s first-ever over the air broadcast television network for African-Americans. Ryan Glover, the president of the burgeoning network has been a fixture in the entertainment industry for many years. The wealth of experience he has accumulated has prepared him for this current position. Since its release, the network is quickly on the verge of becoming a major player in the media landscape.
Bounce TV targets African-Americans, primarily between the ages of 25-54, with a programming mix of theatrical motion pictures, live sports, documentaries, specials, inspirational faith-based programs, original programming and more. Bounce TV is currently available on New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Houston, Cleveland/Akron, Baltimore, New Orleans, Milwaukee, Charlotte, Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Hartford/New Haven television stations.
Bounce TV is majority African-American-owned. Martin Luther King III and Ambassador Andrew Young are among the Founding Group and Board of Directors of Bounce TV. They’re joined by the expertise and knowledge of movie producers and co-founders of one of the top African-American movie studios in the world, Rainforest Films, Will Packer and Rob Hardy. Together, they comprise a formidable executive team to carry out the goals of the network.
