Beginning Friday, January 2, 2015 the Beyond Today television program will be airing on a new day and times.

Because of their expanding audience, the ION Television Network has made a business decision to place their own network programing to begin at 9 a.m. every day of the week. Up until now, their programing has been starting at 11 a.m. each day. This change to 9 a.m. start time becomes effective January 1, 2015.

Therefore, Beyond Today is going to lose its Sunday morning position on ION after December 31. The good news is that ION has been growing in overall viewership. This shrinkage of available paid programing time reduces their inventory by 25%. So, we needed to make a decision on how best to move forward—so as to not lose the good times that are yet available.

After much deliberation the United Church of God purchased Friday mornings at 8:30 a.m. We’ve negotiated this after several rounds of talks to be the same as our current pricing. A major benefit of this change is that we now have full network broadcasting with all 61 O&O (owned and operated) stations in all 210 U.S. markets. We’ll be reaching all 116.4 million households in the U.S.—in other words all 315 million people in the U.S.A. according to current census data.

We did contact representatives of other networks to see what they could offer to make sure that continuing with ION in this manner was our best choice, and no other network was able to offer anything preferable to what we will have starting January 1 on Friday mornings.
