The Katz broadcast networks distribute programming for targeted audiences over the air. The four national networks — Bounce, Grit, Escape and Laff — each reach more than 80 percent of all U.S. households and are among the fastest growing in television today.
Scripps’ acquisition of these innovators increases our opportunity to serve the nation’s largest advertisers, who see tremendous value in the networks’ content and the large, targeted audiences they draw. All four networks are Nielsen rated and depend on a blend of general-market and direct-response advertising.
Founder Jonathan Katz, a former top Turner Broadcasting programming executive, continues to lead the Katz networks business. The company, with about 130 employees, is based in the Atlanta area.
