After the station dumped the Retro TV network for Live Well TV a few months ago, classic TV is coming back to Albritton’s WJLA-TV DC. This is the newest affiliate to join The Me-TV Network, which now has clearance in each of the top 10 television markets. Viewers in the market can also enjoy TV classics on Antenna TV, via WDCW-TV 50. The station will launch Me-TV on March 1 and be seen over-the-air on channel 7.2. WJLA is the second station from this media group to become a Me-TV affiliate.
“We are thrilled to be joining the Me-TV team,” said Bill Lord, General Manager of WJLA. “Me-TV has a great library of all time television hit shows and we are very excited to offer these legendary programs to our audience.”
“Adding Allbritton’s flagship Washington D.C. station to our line-up completes Me-TV’s top ten market clearances in a most prestigious manner. WJLA joins WCIV-Charleston as our second Allbritton market,” said Neal Sabin, President of Content and Networks, Weigel Broadcasting Co.
The Me-TV Network serves 141 affiliates and clears 87% of the country. In addition to being available in all top ten television markets, the network can be found in 28 of the top 30 markets in the U.S.
