RTN In Multicast Deal With Three Stations
Retro Television Network is partnering with Barrington Broadcasting Group to launch RTN affiliations with stations in Toledo, OH; Colorado Springs, CO; and Traverse City, MI. Three stations in those markets will carry RTN content as part of their multicast offerings.
The new affiliates launched on Oct. 11 on the digital streams of WNWO, Toledo's NBC affiliate; KXRM, Colorado Springs' FOX affiliate; and WPBN, Traverse City's NBC affiliate. RTN will be replacing The Tube Music Network, which originally aired on these digital channels.
"We couldn't be more pleased to deliver this terrific RTN Network programming to Toledo, Colorado Springs and Traverse City," said Darlene Goldsberry, Barrington Broadcasting Group's director of programming. "RTN provides a unique and wonderful offering to our viewers and we believe they will enjoy it."
"We are proud to add three Barrington stations to the growing list of RTN affiliates broadcasting our Prime Time all the Time schedule," said Mark Dvornik, executive vice president of RTN. Programming will include Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous with Robin Leach, Streets of San Francisco and Get Smart.
RTN is a new television network that provides each affiliate a customized feed with classic shows in addition to local programming, including news, weather and sports. RTN is designed to go on a broadcast digital channel and help broadcasters monetize their digital spectrum.
RTN is owned and distributed by Equity Media Holdings.
