We are very excited and pleased to report to you that four powerful commercial television stations will soon begin airing Beyond Todayprograms for the United Church of God.
As you may recall, when Beyond Todaybegan airing on WGN Americaabout a year ago in all 210 U.S. media markets except Chicago, we mentioned our next step would be to add this third largest market to our telecast schedule as soon as funds permitted. That time has now come!
Chicago: Beginning July 10, 2011, Beyond Todaywill air on Chicago’s ION network station, WCPX-TV. This station covers 100 percent of the Chicago metropolitan area as well as portions of northwest Indiana and southwest Wisconsin, reaching 3,335,000 households. Our programs will air every Sunday morning on broadcast and satellite channel 38 and cable channel 13 at 9:30 a.m.
Also, since WGN Americaairs very early on Sunday mornings in the Pacific time zone, it was our desire to reach the area with the Beyond Todaytelecast at a better airtime. Here are the details:
Los Angeles: Beyond Todaywill air in Los Angeles, the second largest media market in the U.S., on the ION network station KPXN-TV, every Sunday at 9:30 a.m. Our programs will reach 4,200,000 households (equaling 72 percent of the market) on broadcast channel 30 and cable
San Francisco:Additionally, San Francisco, the sixth largest U.S. media market, will receive Beyond Todayon ION network station KKPX-TV on Sundays at 10:00 a.m. on broadcast and satellite channel 65 and cable channel 16. This station’s signal reaches 2,685,596 households throughout San Francisco and a portion of Monterey, equaling 106 percent of the entire media market.
Seattle: Finally, CBS affiliate station KIRO-TV in Seattle, Washington, the thirteenth largest U.S. media market, will air our programs every Sunday at 9:30 a.m. on broadcast and satellite channel 7.2 and cable channel 117. Interestingly, this station reaches 166 percent of market (3,105,750 households) because its media footprint includes a portion of the Canadian province of British Columbia.
As a result of these additions to the Beyond Todayschedule, a total of 13,326,346 additional households will be reached weekly at these new times. We certainly give our Eternal Father and Jesus Christ all the credit and the glory for this important step forward in preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom of God. Our grateful thanks also go to you for your effective prayers for the success of our research and negotiations. You can be assured that everyone at the home office deeply appreciates your outstanding help and encouragement. Please continue your diligent prayers that many people will tune-in and respond to God’s Word.
