Business Description

Industry: Entertainment » Broadcasting - TV
Compare:TV, CBS, GTN, SKDTY, TVBCY » details
ACME Communications, Inc. was incorporated in Delaware in 1999. The Company owns and operates nine broadcast television stations in medium-sized markets across the United States. The eight television stations that comprise its continuing operations are regionally diverse and range in market size. All but one of the Company's stations are affiliates of The WB Television Network. The Company's second station in the Albuquerque-Santa Fe marketplace is a UPN affiliate. The Company's eight stations have only been on the air, or achieving measurable ratings, for 5-7 years. The Company derive revenues primarily from the sale of advertising time to local, regional and national advertisers and from program licensing fees related to The Daily Buzz that have been a fast growing component of its revenue base. Its advertising revenues depend on popular programming that attracts audiences in the demographic groups targeted by advertisers, allowing it to sell advertising time at satisfactory rates. The Company's rates are directly affected by the number of and demographic makeup of its viewing audience, as measured by Nielsen Media Research. The Company's stations are generally ranked fifth in their respective markets in terms of either their share of viewers or their share of the market's broadcast television revenue. In periods of lower advertising demand competition from market leaders, generally the ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox affiliated stations, increases as these stations become more aggressive in their pricing to maintain their revenue share. The Company's operations are subject to regulation by the FCC.
